Brazilian-born women lead Think-and-Do tank that aims to advance in the enforcement of Human Rights in the digital world by integrating usages and understandings of technology into policy making processes.

Our projects are developed in the intersection of the following areas:

City, Boarders and Territories in the Digital Age

Digital technologies are gradually integrating territories. From Smart Cities, facial recognition technologies, Big Data, Augmented Reality or drones flying over the frontiers, to new issues coming along with the cyber security of States.

Gender and Sexuality in the Digital Environment

Virtual spaces, especially the mainstream platforms that dominate the internet nowadays, reflect the same inequalities we observe offline as sexism, racism and homophobia, threatening the rights of non-conformity groups to freedom of expression, information and safety.

Coding our Rights

This thematic area takes the policy hacking dynamics into its core seeking to address the challenges to merge the communities working in technological tools and those working on advocating for protecting Human Rights in the digital environment.

Response to Public Emergencies

Coding Rights is concerned about how Human Rights are affected or reinforced by public policies addressing digital technologies.
