Session Description

The impact of technical supremacy impacts demographic groups asymmetrically; many people feel it harms them more so because they already suffer as a result of other issues, other oppressions. This two-part session about reframing the way we see the digital rights and digital policy ecosystems will be a conversation held with audience participation and will include the following topics:

  • Ways to challenge innate systems of dominance in both international digital policy and digital the rights community.
  • How we can reexamine our conception of the privacy and security needs of individuals around the world who are seeking to assimilate into a world that is increasingly filled with digital threats
  • Ways to incorporate these strategies into our own work to build more secure tools, craft bolder strategies, create stronger networks and increase advocacy impact."
