Dear all,

 

(Apologies for cross-posting)

 

We're delighted to announce the release of the final module of our online training series “How to engage in cyber policy: tools for human rights defenders”, "Regional Lens", focusing on Africa, Asia and Latin America and the Caribbean. The series aims to help human rights defenders develop the tools, skills and knowledge they need to engage effectively in cyber policy debates.

 

The three Regional Lens videos outline the key issues and avenues for engagement as applicable to Africa, Asia and Latin America and the Caribbean to provide a solid starting point to craft an advocacy approach to safeguard human rights in cyber policy.

 

You can watch them on the online training YouTube channel <https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCow9ZGJMNsZtAkz4ZvTtcJA> . 

 

There will be three Q&A sessions complementing each of the videos, with the first one later today. These sessions will go over the regional context, key issues, and next steps for advocacy. The schedule is as follows:
