More than 10.35 million people are in prison globally. In a world in which digital rights are human rights, how can we address the digital rights of prisoners?
This session tries to shed light on the situation of internet access and digital literacy inside prisons. We will examine the risks and benefits of access to the internet inside prisons. We discuss further the right to be forgotten, online privacy, security and education factoring in the importance of digital literacy training during re-entry programs for formerly incarcerated persons and their families.
