The past decade has seen a rapid expansion of information, communication and networking technologies. This paper explores the processes that are being set in motion in the peacebuilding space by this technological growth. It describes three examples of processes that are affected by new technologies: early warning, dialogue and civil society networks. The changes enabled by technology in these processes present networked, decentralized alternatives to established frameworks, and are beginning to exert some pressure on incumbent systems and stakeholders.
