What You Need to Know about Digital Rights: a RightsCon Debrief

What You Need to Know about Digital Rights: a RightsCon Debrief

By Kristi Arbogast, Communications and Operations Associate at Open Gov Hub

With inboxes overflowing with new privacy policy notices in light of the now-in-effect General Data Protection Regulation in the European Union, it seemed even more vital to gather technologists, policy makers, activists, and academics together at RightsCon in Toronto the other week.

Over the course of three days at a conference center next to the beautiful Lake Ontario, over 2,500 people gathered to discuss and debate some of the most pressing topics relating to human rights in the digital age.

Open Gov Hub Pilots First OpenGov Study Visit for International Delegation

Open Gov Hub piloted this study visit for representatives from local municipalities across Albania to learn how to make their government more open, accountable, and responsive to their citizens. The goals of this program were to facilitate peer learning between the mayors, DC area municipalities, and global leaders in the opengov field. The Albanian Mayors also took part in an Introduction to Open Government training curriculum that the Open Gov hub is developing.
