Activism 2.0: Can social media be used to solve war crimes?

(UC Berkeley video by Roxanne Makasdjian and Stephen McNally)

Advancements in technology and the digital world can be used for good and bad. The power lies in the people who use those tools. Activism 2.0, our ongoing video series, explores the intersection of social activism and technology and how students and alumni at UC Berkeley are using digital tools to tackle pressing social issues. This video, the second in the series, explores the subject of using digital means including social media to document and try to solve war crimes. Other videos in the series address human trafficking and international war crimes. The series was produced by UC Berkeley videographers Roxanne Makasdjian and Stephen McNally.
