Digital Rights and Fair Elections
We use strategic litigation, advocacy, and legal empowerment to ensure electoral justice, uphold digital rights, and enshrine effective tech regulations into law.
Our initiatives seek to protect against digital authoritarianism, promote free and fair elections, and enshrine digital rights by holding governments and corporations to account.
Increasingly, authoritarian regimes use technology and data to restrict individual rights, crack down on dissidents, and spread misinformation. We work with partners globally to ensure free and fair democratic elections are enshrined in national and international law and to hold tech companies and authoritarian governments to account when it comes to ensuring fair and inclusive access to technology, promoting digital freedom, and preventing private actors from profiting from digital data.
