Causing an UPROAR! over internet freedom at the Universal Periodic Review

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

For the last 12 months UPROAR has been working to raise the profile of freedom of expression and opinion and the right to privacy online at the United Nations through the Universal Periodic Review (UPR) process. In fact, we've completely reinvented the approach to lobbying and advocacy on the ground in Geneva! In this interactive workshop we'll begin by asking our network members to share the stories of their successes (and not-so-successes) with you. Then, we want to learn from your experiences, and take the opportunity to expand our network of digital rights champions eager to bring online rights to the fore. And (the super exciting bit)... you'll be among the first to get access to the beta version of our UPR matchmaker and recommendation builder, which uses AI (ok, not really, but close!) and the data from 60,000 UPR recommendations to give us an edge. Through some guided user-testing we'll show you what the tool is capable of, and seek your help and feedback to make it better.
