Caucasus: Online tools in Peace Building

Writing on his Peace and Collaborative Development Network Blog, Global Voices’ Caucasus Editor recounts his experience of using online social networks in cross-border communication and peace building initiatives between Armenia and Azerbaijan. Locked into a still unresolved conflict over the disputed territory of Nagorno Karabakh, another post, however, looks at some concerns raised by fellow GV-ers Ethan Zuckerman and Jillian C.York while assessing whether new open source decentralized social networks such as Diaspora offer a solution. The latest post also examines the use of simple, free tools such as Skype in bringing the two sides together.
