About

The digital human rights lab

The DHRLab is a virtual and physical space at the intersection of human rights and digital transformation. It is an open network of actors from Ugandan civil society that seek to strengthen and promote human rights in a digitalised world. The DHRLab bundles knowledge and expertise, connects organisations and engaged individuals, and supports innovative ideas to utilise the potentials of digitalisation for human rights work.

We have endorsed the Principles for Digital Development, which constitute an important foundation for our project. The Principles for Digital Development are a set of living guidance intended to help practitioners succeed in applying digital technologies to development programs.

The DHRLab is part of the project “Human Rights Protection in the Digital Age” implemented by betterplace lab and Future Challenges, under a grant agreement with the German Corporation for International Cooperation (GIZ), funded by the German Federal Ministry of Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ) under its Digital Africa Initiative.

The team

Coming from different backgrounds, we share the passion for digital transformation and strive to support human rights in the digital age. Getting there, we put together a multi-disciplinary and highly motivated team.
