Beyond Keyboard Warriors & Surveillance: Social Media Impact on Peace and Conflict in the Horn of Africa

COVER PICTURE

This March-April issue focuses on social media and its impact on peace and conflict in the Horn of Africa.

State fragility, authoritarianism and stalled or on-going democratisation processes, all of which in some ways define the African condition, makes Africa an interesting test case for the impact of the internet and social media on the dynamics of conflict, peace and political transformation.

Contributions share various perspectives on the role of social media in the Horn of Africa, in general, and with cases from Kenya, Sudan, Ethiopia, as well as an overview on the use of Information, Technology, and Communications for Peace.
