Internet Rules: Unboxing digital laws in South Asia

Publisher: APCNews    

The Association for Progressive Communications (APC) and its partners are delighted to invite you to participate in Internet Rules: Unboxing digital laws in South Asia, 2020!

Internet Rules is a unique capacity-building opportunity for young digital rights defenders to enhance their skills for understanding and analysing laws governing online spaces and technology. We seek to provide this platform for young lawyers, activists, researchers and policy workers from South Asia to sharpen their skills in advocating for rights-compliant digital laws.

The workshop creates an opportunity for participants to engage with experts and practitioners currently working to improve digital laws and to network with fellow digital rights defenders while building their capacity to impact change at the national, regional and international level.

The workshop will be held on a virtual platform from 23 to 27 November 2020.

We aim to hold a space that will allow participants to:

  • Enhance their understanding of a rights-based perspective of digital laws in South Asia. 

  • Gain tools and resources on digital laws and jurisprudence to aid in research and advocacy.

  • Build relationships with peers for greater collaboration. 

If this is of interest to you, we request you to apply for participation by filling out this form by 20 September 2020. We will be selecting 20 participants who will be provided an honorarium of USD 150 each on completing the course.

Please write to us at challenge@apc.org for queries. We look forward to your participation at the workshop!
