The novel coronavirus has led to millions of people working virtually, and more dependence than ever on access to reliable information and the internet. Some governments have responded to the pandemic by dramatically increasing surveillance on populations, and companies gather and retain huge amounts of our personal data. Join us for a talk on the risks and opportunities for digital and information rights during the pandemic, with experts Adebayo Okeowo (WITNESS), Diego Naranjo (European Digital Rights), Maria Luisa Stasi (Article 19); and Michael Pisa (Center for Global Development); moderated by Janlori Goldman (Columbia/NYU).
This event is part of a virtual event series titled "COVID-19: Advancing Rights and Justice During a Pandemic." For information about other similar events and the series in general, visit tinyurl.com/COVID19JusticeSeries.
The series is organized by the Columbia Law School Human Rights Institute, Duke Law’s International Human Rights Clinic, Columbia Law School’s Center for Gender and Sexuality Law, and Just Security.
