Event description

Description

Access Now is excited to bring the eighth edition of RightsCon, the world’s leading summit on human rights in the digital age, to Tunis, Tunisia. RightsCon is where human rights experts, investors, business leaders, technologists, engineers, activists, and government representatives from around the world work to build strategies, create partnerships, and drive large-scale, real-world change in our digital world.

From June 11-14, 2019, RightsCon Tunis will be a bustling hub, located at the Laico Hotel and the Palais des Congrès, right next to the city’s Human Rights Square, and just a few minutes’ walk from the heart of downtown Tunis. Check out our interactive map of the venue here.

Together we are tackling some of the most pressing issues at the intersection of human rights, technology, and the internet:

  • Artificial Intelligence, Automation, and Algorithmic Accountability
  • Freedom of Expression and Censorship
  • Misinformation, Journalism, and the Future of Online Media
  • Civic Tech and e-Governance
  • Corporate Social Responsibility, Transparency, and Remedy
  • Data Trust, Protection, and User Control Locally, Regionally, and Globally
  • Privacy, Surveillance, and Individual Security
  • Countering Online Harassment, Hate Speech, and Violent Extremism
  • The Impact of Technology on the Sustainable Development Goals
  • Internet Shutdowns, Net Discrimination, and Connectivity
  • The Impact of the Merging of New Technologies
  • Innovation, Trade, and Intellectual Property
  • Democracy, Conflict, and Shrinking Civic Spaces
  • Cybersecurity and Encryption
  • Jurisdiction and the Rule of Law
  • Diversity and Inclusion
  • Philanthropy, Funding, and Operational Development

Inclusive Ticket Discounts Policy

Access Now is committed to making RightsCon Tunis accessible and open to all, which means we are doing our best to make the conference inclusive for participants and speakers from all over the world. We recognize the importance of local participation in the success of the conference, which is why we have created localized ticket prices for Tunisian residents. Regardless of where you are located, our policy is that the price of tickets should never prohibit attendance at RightsCon.

If your session has been accepted as part of the RightsCon Tunis program, or if you are associated as a speaker in a session, you will receive a menu of discount codes to use for your registration in early 2019. Due to the nature of this conference, in which a high proportion of the people attending are also part of the programming, we are asking that those speakers with the means to do so pay for all or a portion of their tickets.

If you are interested in attending, are not part of the program, and are unable to pay the registration fees, please send us a note at rightscon@accessnow.org and we will share discount codes with you as appropriate.

Access Now is a not-for-profit, 501(c)(3) organization that relies upon the support, investment, and generosity of a variety of stakeholders in order to carry out its mission. This ticket policy helps ensure that we can continue to defend human rights in the digital age around the world.
