Sessions draft outline

Defending digital civic space: how to counter digital threats against civil society
As repressive governments curtail digital civic space, defending civil society against surveillance and offensive information controls has become ever more important. This panel gives insights into the risks and security needs of activists from authoritarian contexts and showcases efforts aiming to build resilience against digital threats.

Investigative journalism in South East Europe
The role of the digital space became vital for investigative journalism , while the digital environment is making journalists more vulnerable than ever. This panel will enable a discussion between experts and investigative journalists from countries with rise of authoritarianism and limitation of basic freedoms in South Eastern Europe.

HowTo Parltrack Workshop
The Parltrack workshop will make you understand Parltrack and thus helps you using it and its data more efficiently – be you a policy geek or a data-mining programmer.

The impact of surveillance on today’s kids – tomorrow’s human rights activists
Every child is a potential extremist under school mass surveillance. Police are monitoring #FridaysForFuture climate protests. Climate activists are put in preventive detention. Teachers are surveilling social media. This panel will discuss examples from research, real life and regulation. Where and why defending today’s child rights and freedoms is vital to our future fight against global mass surveillance?

The EDPS civil society summit
EDRi members and other important actors in civil society will meet the European Data Protection Supervisor for a discussion on the most ardent threats to our rights and freedoms online. This year, the focus falls on face recognition in the EU.

Access requests as a tool for activism (Rene Mahieu, Joris van Hoboken)
Access requests are used by NGOs, journalists and others for the protection of fundamental rights in a data-driven environment. The objective of the session is to strengthen the access request community by sharing best practices of how access rights are used in a activist context.

“Actually, In Google We Trust”? A ‘Deconstructing’ Conversation on Russian Internet
This panel, organized by the ResisTIC research project team, seeks to engage in a “deconstructing” and interactive discussion about Russian digital activism, especially its most surprising aspects: high levels of trust in ‘giant’, centralized, United States-based platforms (Google, Facebook) instead of a priori more activist-oriented tools.

Activism and digital infrastructures
This panel will problematise the use of data-driven tools and corporate-owned platforms by activist organisations. We will discuss how the goals and values of these tools and platforms align with the goals and values of activist organisations. We aim to answer questions such as how activists can put their ideas and values into practice while still being able to protect the privacy of their peers and supporters and how can organisers reach large audiences while retaining a quality of participation for their supporters.

Internet for All – Silenced and Harassed No More!
The session aims at making visible the different forms of violence experienced by minority groups and other groups at risk online, which inevitably impact their freedom of expression and their ability to organise themselves online. We will ask ourselves how to make the internet truly for all.
