Debate - Auditorium - 60 Min
Digital policy and human rights frameworks: What is the relationship between digital policy and development and the established international frameworks for civil and political rights as set out in the Universal Declaration on Human Rights and the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights and further interpretation of these in the online context provided by various resolutions of the Human Rights Council? How do policy makers and other stakeholders effectively connect these global instruments and interpretations to national contexts? What is the role of different local, national, regional and international stakeholders in achieving digital inclusion that meets the requirements of users in all communities?
Inclusion, rights and stakeholder roles and responsibilities: What are/should be the responsibilities of governments, businesses, the technical community, civil society, the academic and research sector and community-based actors with regard to digital inclusion and respect for human rights, and what is needed for them to fulfil these in an efficient and effective manner?
Digital Identity. The rights for all to have a digital identity. Person data ownership. The right for all to have access to their person data and which data is yours. Authentication. Who is responsible for determining that you are you. What happens in a connected society when transparency leads to the insight that there is a lack of control/tools and that the availability of tools to control your data makes clear that you perhaps do not own your person data online. How can we be safe online as a human when others control our data, there is a lack of transparency and not all have a digital identity. Is there a role for cities in this domain? Article 1 of the Declaration states freedom, dignity and 'brotherhood'. Article 12 states privacy. In a connected world article 1 and 12 can be seen as one. Are we developing an Internet that, guarantees/protects our dignity? This workshop will be given by 3 people, talented young woman with a law degree, The CTO of the city of Amsterdam and myself the founder of Digital Rights House Foundation.
3. Good Health and Well-Being
9. Industry, Innovation and Infrastructure
10. Reduced Inequalities
11. Sustainable Cities and Communities
Targets: Online dignity is a basic human right. Article 1. Privacy is article 12. Both from the Declaration. SDG 9 and 11 need to implement these Declaration articles. SDG 3 and 10 address an Internet for all (Inclusivity) and dignity (feeling safe and being who you want to be). Our workshop looks at the perspective of the citizen and the city. These SDGs bring the context.
Are we developing an Internet that, guarantees/protects our dignity? This workshop will be given by a talented young woman with a law degree, The CTO of the city of Amsterdam and the founder of the Digital Rights House Foundation. During the workshop considerations will be presented related to living in an online connected society. Focus will be on recent developments in data gathering, related privacy questions and arguments towards recognising the importance of dignity in an online connected society. A discussion will be stimulated on the relationship between citizen en city and who has which role in creating a safe online space. In the workshop the participants will have opportunity to play a role in the discussion. First the position of the citizen will be discussed. Then the position of the city. Then a discussion will take place on moving forward in shaping a better fundament of our digital rights when online.
A memo will be drafted on the discussion and made available online. Furthermore, the memo will be taken further in discussions with cities on implementing digital rights locally.
The discussion will be live in person in the auditorium. Online participants can take part in the discussion. The agenda is Opening statements / Citizen position / City position / Moving forward. In the Opening statement part online questions/remarks will be gathered and a selection will be brought into the conversation. During both the Citizen and the City part a selection of questions from online will be taken. In the moving forward part the participant present live will share thoughts. In the memo afterwards online contributions will be added to memo. Moderation is done by Jake and an assistant will keep an eye on the online contributions.
