Description

Freedom of expression, freedom of association and privacy are all important aspects of a modern society, yet in an increasingly connected world these freedoms have been questioned and sometimes severely inhibited in times of conflict. In this track, we'll cover these freedoms from a number of different angles: looking at human rights in Arab countries as well as in Latin America. We'll talk about Wikileaks and it's relation with media, the drafting of modern constitutions, the debate on privacy and more practically: the last stand in the fight for end-to-end encryption of private communication on the Internet.
