Conjuring Zones of Insecurity: Post-Conflict Election Campaigning by Text Message in Aceh, Indonesia

In October 2014, the European Interagency Security Forum (EISF) launched a knowledge hub on communications technology and security risk management. The first publication of this project brought together 17 authors who analysed in 11 articles how communications technology is changing the operational environment, the ways in which communications technology is creating new opportunities for humanitarian agencies to respond to emergencies, and the impact that new programmes have on how we manage security.

In this article, Jesse Hession Grayman and Bobby Anderson describe the use of text messaging during the post-conflict election campaigning in Aceh, Indonesia.
