re:publica 2016 – Digital colonialism: a global overview

Find out more at: https://re-publica.de/16/session/digital-colonialism-global-overview

Beyond tensions of privacy and security, we are witnessing a real confrontation between control and freedom, not only of the individual, but of entire populations and regions, enhanced by technologies and massive collection and analysis of data. From predicting to influencing behaviours, from automation of public services to fully control and the ability to disrupt those, even remotely. From gaining access to a global communications platform to losing the ability to protect the rights of those who are interconnected in such platforms. We are witnessing a different form of global domination and control. This talk will explore the dangers of digital colonialism and how countries in the South are fighting back.

Speaker: Renata Avila, Joana Varon, Nanjira Sambuli, Alan Mills
