Shaping Emerging Technologies to Ensure Respect for Human Rights and Democratic Principles

The United States Government believes that to advance technology for democracy, democracies must highlight what they stand for – an affirmative, cogent, values-driven, and rights-respecting vision for freedom and democracy in the digital era – and they must stand against the misuse of technology to repress, control, divide, and disenfranchise and the spread of digital authoritarianism. It is also imperative to focus not only on today’s technologies but to shape the ecosystem of emerging technologies in line with democratic principles and human rights. This U.S. government-hosted event will feature several sessions dedicated to these three themes.
