Bock attends the roundtable at the National Academy of Sciences

The National Academy of Engineering and the United States Institute of Peace held a roundtable discussion titled "Sensing and Shaping Emerging Conflicts" on October 11, 2012. In attendance from the University of Notre Dame was Joseph Bock, PhD, Director of Global Health Training at the Eck Institute for Global Health. His recently released book, The Technology of Nonviolence: Social Media and Violence Prevention, uncovers new insights into using technology-enhanced efforts to stop violence before it happens.
The roundtable was held at the National Academy of Sciences in Washington, DC. Roundtable attendees included experts from the federal government, humanitarian organizations, educational institutions, science institutes, and technology firms. The workshop featured lectures and discussions from expert panelists on topics such as the use of early warning technologies in locations of acute tension.
"There is solid evidence of success," Bock states, "but there is much to be discovered, developed and, most importantly, implemented."
