The Open Internet: Local Perspectives, Global Rights
At the Global Voices Citizen Media Summit 2015, bloggers, activists, social media experts and geeks from around the globe will discuss the open Internet, online civic movements and human rights in the digital age. In interactive sessions, panels, and debates, complex issues will be discussed ranging from digital surveillance to multilingualism online to legal threats against bloggers and activists—all challenges that lie at the core of much of what we do as a community, and of the future of the Internet.
