Digitalization, Resistance and Resilience in the Russo-Ukrainian War

Vortrag von Maggie Fischer, The Fletcher School of Law and Diplomacy at Tufts University | Im Rahmen der Reihe "Transatlantic Tuesday"

Political analysts have characterized the Russo-Ukrainian War as the most internet-accessible war in history. High digital literacy and social media traffic among Ukrainians has allowed them to mobilize technology to document abuses and possible war crimes among the population on social media and messaging platforms. This increased flow of information from Ukrainian civilians serves a dual purpose. The documentation of abuses against the Ukrainian people informs international monitoring organizations and provides the legal basis for future criminal charges against perpetrators. Recording these abuses also empowers the Ukrainian people to craft their own narrative of violence and digital networks to develop resilient responses to war trauma. This discussion will examine the dual use of this content and its ability to empower Ukrainian citizens to advocate for and strengthen their communities in the face of war.
