Digital Societies

Our priorities

Our work aims to support just and inclusive digital futures. We prioritise attention to human rights and inclusion in the design, use, regulation and study of digital technologies. This means looking globally at how digitalisation plays out in different contexts and among marginalised groups. This also means working collaboratively, bringing together diverse stakeholders – activists, policymakers and private actors – to better understand one another’s perspectives, and collectively devise just, inclusive and forward-looking solutions to the challenges facing our increasingly digital societies.
