Digital Humanitarianism in a Kinetic War: Taking Stock of Ukraine (Peace Research Institute Oslo)

Peace Research Institute Oslo: Digital Humanitarianism in a Kinetic War: Taking Stock of Ukraine. “The war in Ukraine – which can be described as an info-kinetic conflict – is the first war in a society with a relatively mature digital economy, a substantial tech sector (including a diaspora tech sector) and a high adoption rate of technology and digital platforms. From a peace and conflict studies perspective, as of mid-spring 2022, the war in Ukraine can be understood as an information war, a war through digital diplomacy, a cyberwar, and the first war where Big Tech has actively taken a side.”
