OSINT and Peacekeeping in Africa

Our next webinar – OSINT and Peacekeeping in Africa – will take place on the 30th of September.

This event is dedicated to the topic of OSINT Intelligence as a situational awareness tool in complex peacekeeping operations in the African continent. 

Our presenters will also take part in a live Q&A session, answering questions from attendees.

Our team will be joined by a guest expert – Dr Walter Dorn, Professor of Defence Studies at the Royal Military College of Canada (RMC) and the Canadian Forces College (CFC), who specializes in arms control, peace operations, just war theory, international criminal law, treaty verification and enforcement, and the United Nations. Dr Dorn is a scientist by training with years of on the ground experience acquired throughout his numerous field operations for peacekeeping and peace enforcement.

Currently, most of the peace operations of the UN Missions for peacekeeping are active in Africa. In terms of media consumption, this represents a distinctly different environment from many other places around the world.

Mark Pfeiffer, Chief Visionary Officer at HENSOLDT Analytics, will look at the use of OSINT in preparing and supporting such missions as an additional sensor, one which will allow an increased situational awareness and understanding meant to protect and support the missions’ objectives as well as all of those involved.

Our OSINT Analyst, Anne-Lynn Dudenhöfer, will present on the topic of “Protecting Peacekeepers & Civilians: OSINT for Improved Situational Awareness“.

Today’s technological landscape calls for a shift in peacekeeping culture and organisation. According to Secretary-General António Guterres, the United Nations‘ peacekeeping architecture was designed for an “analogue world”. If the United Nations aim to improve responsiveness to the asymmetrical challenges posed by the peace and conflict landscape, situational and contextual assessments have to become an integral part of every mission. Especially when combined with HUMINT, open-source intelligence can provide valuable insights for peacekeeping personnel and strategy.

Registration deadline: 29th of September
