"Peacetech" is a loosely defined term used to describe technology that is used by peacebuilders or has applicability to peacebuilding. Generally peacetech has the following characteristics:
- It is broadly available and easily accessible.
- It is relatively low cost (and in some cases, free) to use.
- It enables or facilitates actions that address violence, the causes for violence, or promotes peace.
Note: Many of the tools listed on this wiki can also be used for purposes other than peacebuilding (even to promote and incite violence.) It is generally understood that it is the intent of the user that determines whether a tool is in fact "peacetech".
