This surgery discussed the challenges of running civic tech initiatives in conflict settings and other difficult contexts. The panellists brought their experiences to the questions of how best to support the civic tech community in hostile environments; and what is – and isn’t – helpful when we are doing so.
Panel members were Teona Tomashvili of ForSet in Georgia; Yolanda Booyzen of the global organisation HURIDOCS; and Julie Hawke from the international Build Up.

Following this Surgery, we convened an Action Lab (aka working group), who worked together to commission a piece of work to help solve common challenges raised by Surgery attendees. Find out more about the Action Lab.
