Podcast #1: Introducing the Digital Human Rights Lab

Katharina Bauch June 23, 2020

Human Rights and the Digital Podcast presents voices and perspectives of Human Rights defenders in Uganda, focusing on how technology is being used to the realization of Human Rights.


Welcome to the very first episode of Human Rights and the Digital Podcast!

In this Episode we introduce the Digital Human Rights Lab, a digital and physical space that is strengthening digital human rights work in Uganda. The DHRLab is initiated by Future Challenges and betterplace lab, two organizations from Berlin, Germany, in close cooperation with the Ugandan partner organization Pollicy.

We explore the potential of digitalization for Human Rights work in Uganda, without losing sight of the risks: in particular, economic, social and cultural rights should not be ignored so that non-discriminatory access to digital developments can be guaranteed.
