Stanford-ICNL Tech Camp for Civic Space Defenders
Are you working on the legal framework for civil society and philanthropy in your country? Are you curious how AI and machine learning, facial recognition technology, and big data will transform society? Are you wondering about the impact of these and other digital technologies on your work?
If so, we invite you to apply to the Tech Camp for Civic Space Defenders, organized by Stanford’s Global Digital Policy Incubator and the International Center for Not-forProfit Law. The camp will be held from February 2 - 4, 2020 at Stanford University in Palo Alto, California. The curriculum will include:
• An introduction to AI, machine learning, and other digital technologies;
• Discussions on how digital technologies can be used to enable or restrict civil society and philanthropy, as well as the freedoms of association, expression, and assembly (“civic space”);
• Analysis of how various national internet regulations and international digital policy initiatives impact civic space; and
• Interactive sessions on how to advocate for digital technology policies and utilize digital tools and practices that expand civic space.
Under this call, we anticipate supporting approximately 25 people from OECD-DAC recipient countries for this exciting opportunity
The organizers will cover participant airfare, lodging, and local transport in the US, and some meals in Palo Alto. The organizers will also provide letters of invitation, but participants are responsible for obtaining a US visa and for all associated costs. No per diem will be provided; participants will be expected to cover the cost of airport transfers in their home countries, travel insurance, some meals, and incidental costs incurred in connection with their Tech Camp attendance.
