Co-designing and Threat-modeling Accountability Tools for Restricted Civic Spaces: the Egypt Social Progress Indicators platform

During this session, the organizers will share the learnings they gathered and challenges they faced over the multi-year process of designing the Egypt Social Progress indicators (ESPI), a rights-based accountability tool, with members of the tech and human rights community. Participants can expect to learn about the stakeholder-driven design that centers threat-modeling priorities at its heart, the needs and solutions put in place to ensure ESPI’s sustainability and partners security in the difficult political climate of Egypt. Participants can also expect to learn about working with economic and social rights measuring methodologies, and data visualization. The session will invite participants to interact with the team behind ESPI, its technology, risk and methodology advisors, and the national actors that were the driving force behind its creation. The session aims to stimulate reflection, open discussion and to collect audience feedback to improve ESPI’s data processes and advocacy efforts in its forthcoming phases, and explore opportunities for regional (and global?) collaboration. The organizers believe both participants and presenters will benefit from exploring and evaluating the ESPI model alongside with CSOs and social movements from other countries facing similar thematic and structural challenges, and using such tools to work in effectively restricted civic spaces.
