Panel Submission: PrivacyCamp 2022 - Digital at the centre, rights at the margins?

The 10th edition of Privacy Camp invites for a forward-looking retrospective on the last decade of digital rights. This edition aims at building on the lessons of the past and at collectively articulating strategic ways forward for the advancement of human rights in the digital society.

1. Putting rights at the centre of digital policies

Too often, rights are an after-thought of digital policies. In the past decade we have seen again and again decision-makers decide first, and think about the impact on digital rights later. How can this be changed, to have future policy decisions getting rights right from the start, notably in relation to automated decision-making, the platform economy, data protection and privacy of communications, and the surveillance infrastructure.

Notably, we invite proposals tackling questions such as the below:

  • What can we learn from national and EU debates around digital rights, that will be relevant for current and upcoming challenges?
  • At EU level, has there been an evolution in terms of better integration of fundamental rights concerns into policy-making and socio-technical design?
  • Has the changing role of EU institutions in relation to fundamental rights affected their approach to digital policy? Does it depend on the EU institution?
  • Halfway through its term, how is the European Commission standing in terms of digital rights and policies?
  • How do debates about EU digital policies intersect with the power of Big Tech and national states?
  • How to make sure that rights remain a central priority when legal instruments have been adopted and what is needed is to guarantee their effective enforcement (e.g. GDPR enforcement)?

 2. Bringing marginalised perspectives at the core of the digital rights discussion

The digital rights agenda was never neutral. It has been shaped over the years by a predominantly reactive approach to digital policy debates. Importantly, it also has its own dynamics dependent on a rather specific set of priorities. This means that some perspectives on digital rights, notably those coming from the point of view of marginalised people and communities, have been themselves marginalised. What are the voices and issues that have been left out, heard less, or simply not amplified enough?

Notably, we invite proposals tackling questions such as the below:

  • How have digital rights strategies and approaches suffered from a limited perspectives in the past?
  • How can the digital rights community better centre the voices of people disproportionately affected by exploitative digitalisation, such as women, LGBTQI+ communities, racialised communities and people from the global south, people with disabilities, working class people?
  • What are the lessons learnt from creating broader coalitions with other actors such as workers’ unions, groups advocating for women rights, LGBTQI+ rights, anti-racism movements, or migrants’ rights defenders?
  • What can we learn from how marginalised groups have been affected by digitalisation, and what effects have legal frameworks had to counter this disproportionate impact?
  • How can we make sure that when we put rights at the centre of digital policies - the concerns of marginalised people are given the necessary space? 
  • How might the digital rights field incorporate transformative justice and decolonial perspectives into its work?
