Hera Hussain: 'Decolonising digital rights'
23 aug. 2021 - For as long as I can remember, I’ve felt the duty of being that woman who sits in a meeting room in London, Geneva, New York, Berlin and Paris and talks about what digital rights mean for not just people of colour in Europe and North America, but across the rest of the world. Approximately 84% of the world’s poor live in South Asia and sub-Saharan Africa, and the digital divide remains steep but that’s only part of the story. These aren’t passive consumers of the web. They’re active prosumers. TikTok has been downloaded over 360 million times in South East Asia, a region of 658 million people. With social platforms, anyone with a phone can become a star, make money, connect with others, build a family of choice and acceptance, fall in love, and live a life they may not be allowed otherwise.

Sociale media verwijderen elk jaar miljoenen schokkende video’s. Maar daarmee gaat ook cruciaal bewijs verloren
18 sep. 2020 - Facebook, Twitter, YouTube en andere sociale media verwijderen steeds meer gewelddadige, haatzaaiende en misleidende content van hun platforms. Maar daarmee vernietigen ze ook cruciaal bewijs voor ernstige misdrijven. Is daar een oplossing voor te vinden?

One Database to Rule Them All: The Invisible Content Cartel that Undermines the Freedom of Expression Online
27 aug. 2020 - Every year, millions of images, videos and posts that allegedly contain terrorist or violent extremist content are removed from social media platforms like YouTube, Facebook, or Twitter. A key force behind these takedowns is the Global Internet Forum to Counter Terrorism (GIFCT), an industry-led initiative that seeks to “prevent terrorists and violent extremists from exploiting digital platforms.” And unfortunately, GIFCT has the potential to have a massive (and disproportionate) negative impact on the freedom of expression of certain communities.
