Launched in 2018 through a collaboration between the Peace Innovation Lab at Stanford University and the City of The Hague, the Peace Innovation Institute works in the intersection of behavior design, engineering, technology, innovation and business.
The best way to undo the damage that rampant capitalism and irresponsible use of technology have done, is from the inside out.
The Peace Innovation Institute is working to catalyze a new peace technology industry by bringing about change from the ground up and making positive social change profitable.
One of the challenges surrounding peace is the fact that it hasn’t always been measurable. For over a decade now, PII has been working to establish a metrics-based approach to measure and price the value of peace. The result was the Hague Peace Data Standard.
It measures various dimensions of real-time interactions, between both individuals and groups. These are measured in the form of episodes of engagement, across difference boundaries, to determine the environmental and social impacts of both human behavior, and of the mediating technologies people use to engage with each other in their daily lives.
Measuring Peace: The Hague Peace Data Standard will examine peace data through the following four research directions:
- Group identities: the characteristics of an individual that connect them to a group dynamic (e.g. Hindu, Jew, Christian or Muslim)
- Difference boundaries: the common characteristics of the differences in the group identities between any two individuals, (e.g. Religion in the previous example)
- Episodes of engagement: the unilateral sub-components of interactions between individuals.
- Longitudinal data: in which the sequence of engagement episodes over time is essential to understand which chains of interaction behavior, in which order, lead to sustainable peace.
If you’re interested about learning how you, as an engineer, can measure your impact, and learn more about building peace into your process, register before spots are taken! P. S. Special discounts available for students and people in academia!

Be a part of defining the future of Peace Measurement. In this week-long interactive workshop we will come together with the most brilliant minds on the planet (that’s you) to define the research directions and increase their precision so that we can use these as actual units of measurement when collecting data within companies.
