Geospatial Technology as a Conflict Prevention and Management Tool in UN Peacekeeping

Abstract

The goal of this policy paper is to explore the role of satellite and GIS technologies as a tool for conflict prevention and management specifically in the context of UN peacekeeping missions. Today geospatial analysts at headquarters and in the field actively provide information and analysis to mission management and decision-makers. This paper begins by describing some of the key functions of this technology in contemporary peace operations. It has been shown to help peacekeepers better understand the drivers of conflict on the ground, monitor boundaries and ceasefire lines, improve situational awareness and validate information, document evidence of mass atrocities and other human rights abuses, and inform military planning and the location of troop deployments.
