Technology and digitalization have contributed greatly to global democracy and the fight for human rights and a more just and equal world.
However, technology is used as an impactful tool to counteract democracy and misuse power. All over the globe, we witness how digital technologies continue to pose a severe threat to freedom and democracy through surveillance, criminalisation of online activism, internet shutdowns, misinformation etc.
This calls for joint action.

 

 

Finding Solutions // Acting together

Global Focus is therefore happy to be part of the new global initiative Tech for Democracy, spearheaded by the Danish government. Tech for Democracy brings together civil society, governments, and the tech industry to work in global action to find concrete solutions to ensure that technology and digitalization work for – and not against - democracy and human rights. Global Focus is determined to ensure that global civil society and citizens’ voices are at the forefront of Tech for Democracy.

Global Focus invites you to be part of Tech for Democracy´s Days of Action - five days of multistakeholder dialogue on how technology can support democracy and human rights.
