We aim to:

  • Equip you with a detailed understanding of a human-rights-based approach to AI development 
  • Provide a comprehensive understanding of the mechanisms currently counteracting this approach
  • Introduce technical and non-technical solutions around the human rights impacts of AI systems 
  • Enable you to critically analyse and reflect on the objectives and outcomes of any new technology products
  • Promote collaboration between disciplines and actors


  • Creation of technology is strengthened by consultation, consensus, and diverse disciplinary perspectives, as well as the lived experiences of affected communities.
  • Impacted communities & experts from all parts of the technology and social science spectrums require a basic understanding and common vocabulary to participate in this important conversation.
