ONLINE: Data security, Democracy & Corona
  Cologne, DE Conference


Join us for our discussion series on Democracy and the Covid-19 crisis!

Countries around the world are facing an unprecedented challenge in dealing with the global outbreak of the Covid-19 virus. The measures being put in place, while often timely and necessary, have real and sometimes unanticipated impacts on our democratic practices and processes.

We will take a closer look at tracking apps and Covid-19 patient data bases and how they influence citizens' rights and liberties. Experts from the Netherlands, Latin America and Palestine join us for an interactive discussion.

We have been monitoring the measures that have been put in place and how they impact democracy in different countries. Through interviews and regular group calls, we have been discussing with democracy activists everywhere on the issues they experience, the problems they face and the opportunities they see for the future of democracy: https://www.democracy.community/forms/challenges-democracy-during-glo
