"ICT – Threat and Opportunity for Human Rights"
Publicerad: den 20 oktober 2014 Uppdaterad: den 20 oktober 2014

Date: 14 November 2014
Time: 09.00 – 12.00
Venue: Sida, Valhallavägen 199, Stockholm

Information and communication technologies (ICTs) have dramatically changed our world in ways hard to imagine just a few decades ago. In a nearly revolutionary way, new technology has given people greater freedom to speak up and get involved in societal development. However, state regulations and digital security and surveillance bring new challenges to the protection of human rights and processes of democratization worldwide.

We will discuss issues related to access and inclusion as well as the fragility and misuse of technology. How can we assure that the ICTs we promote do not put human rights defenders at risk? Is there a best practice when handling the duality of technologies, including the recent revelations on surveillance matters? How can we best ensure that the internet is free, open and secure? The need to find a good balance between the pros and cons of technology has never been bigger.

Sida is pleased to invite you to a Development Talks that will target the current challenges and plan a future roadmap where constructive collaboration is in the centre of attention. Welcome!
