Big tech accountability? Read how we got here in  The Closing of the Net 

I was honoured to present a training course on Internet Governance and Human Rights for policy-makers and academics in Ukraine. The course was part of a programme sponsored by the Council of Europe and the European Union. My co-presenter for the training was Veronica Cretu. Working closely with the Council of Europe, we planned and wrote the course to meet the needs of the target audience.  The aim was to impart key principles of Internet governance and the ways in which human rights apply online, using an interactive training methodology.

We delivered the training in a 3-day package to over 30 participants in Kiev in November 2015. It was a fantastic group. They threw themselves enthousiastically into the exercises and we received some lovely  feedback! The pictures below show how much everyone enjoyed it!

Iptegrity in brief

 

Iptegrity.com is the website of Dr Monica Horten. I’ve been analysing analysing digital policy since 2008. Way back then, I identified how issues around rights can influence Internet policy, and that has been a thread throughout all of my research. I hold a PhD in EU Communications Policy from the University of Westminster (2010), and a Post-graduate diploma in marketing. I am on the Advisory Council of the Open Rights Group.  I’ve served as an independent expert on the Council of Europe  Committee on Internet Freedoms, and was involved in a capacity building project in Moldova, Georgia, and Ukraine.
