Armed conflict & Internet: safe spaces for civilians

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

We'd like to organize a roundtable where activists would present case studies on  how Internet is essential for civilians in conflict zones, from their experience and perspective. Then we'll discuss with Security experts on how to imagine innovative solutions to create a tool that would help citizens communicate and organize in conflict-zones.
