TechWatch

enhancing the response to human rights challenges in the digital era

In collaboration with Electronic Frontier Norway (Elektronisk Forpost Norge, EFN)

TechWatch initiative builds on the foundations laid by the Czech-Norwegian project “Promoting Human Rights in the Digital Era” (2022-2024), financed by Norway Funds (LP-HRMGSA-017).This project is committed to arming media, business and IT students, journalists, and tech experts with the critical skills to adeptly navigate the complex interplay between technology and human rights, ensuring technology uplifts rather than undermines human dignity.

 

Project Duration: November, 2023 – April, 2024
