In this Human Rights Forum, panelists from secondary and higher education, and the legal and nonprofit fields, will discuss how human rights protection intersects with digital technologies.

The panel will include perspectives on technology and business, use of technology in conflict zones, refugee and other vulnerable populations, discrimination, the digital divide?between different communities, and issues of privacy and information sharing.


During the event, panelists will each speak in their area of expertise, with Q&A and discussion among panelists and audiencemembers to follow. Lunch will be provided.
