Squeezed Between Russia and China. Digital Rights in Central Asia

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

Digital rights activists, human rights defenders, cultural activists in Central Asia, and our allies internationally, need to bluntly confront the degree to which digital "civic space" is under threat in the region, analyze remedies and prioritize efforts. Central Asia governments interested in curbing online rights - essentially all of them - can both reference policies in Russia and China as justification and adopt the actual tools and practices of repression which have been developed. The rights community needs to understand: 1) how has the digital rights environment deteriorated and how is it likely to deteriorate further; 2) what are the most critical immediate/looming threats; and 3) what can we do ourselves and what help do we most critically need from international actors (civil society, the private sector, government, international agencies).
