In February 2011 Mohammed Nabbous started live-streaming events in Benghazi, Libya. Immediately an online community sprung up around his Libya Al Hurra channel. As of this seminal moment, a constellation of other small trusted networks were created. These clusters harnessed online activism, vetted newcomers, responded to grass roots demands, fact-checked open source intel and mutually reinforced their actions. Danaïdes.org co-founder, Stephanie Lamy created some of these active networks, coordinated between them and acted as a resource, relationship and information broker. These networks were featured in a 2012 MIT Tech Review article.
Dr. Félix Blanc and Stephanie Lamy met in 2013 at Internet Without Borders. Previously, Félix had researched french citizen engagement around military operations, whereas Stephanie had just developed a new methodology for delivering resources to civil society in conflict zones including Libya. They naturally co-founded Danaïdes.org in 2017 and presented the P2PR2P tool for the first time at the 2017 Euro-ISME conference in Brussels. The concept was credited by humanitarians as well as CIMIC actors as fulfilling a current and urgent need. The International Society for Military Ethics (ISME) is the leading organisation of scientists, academics and military professionals engaged in research as well as education and training in the field of professional military ethics.
