Paralysis through disruption: Understanding the full human impacts of network disruptions

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

The impacts of network disruptions are felt very broadly across all sectors in
impacted geographies. And yet digital rights groups and ICT companies sometimes feel like voices in the wilderness pushing back against these restrictions. This workshop will try to come up with tactics for engaging new actors from across civil society, the business community, and other sectors as advocates against disruption. After initial presentation of the work the presenters and their organizations have done, we will break into groups focused on particular kinds of impact (e.g., humanitarian, security, education, etc.) and ask each group to map out the kinds of organizations that are likely to be impacted by disruptions and suggest how to engage them on this issue.
