The Call for Proposals is the cornerstone of RightsCon’s community-sourced program and presents a dynamic snapshot of the state of human rights and technology. As RightsCon Costa Rica (June 5-8, 2023) approaches, we're taking a close look at the numbers of the Call for Proposals and sharing insights about the forces and factors shaping our first hybrid program. This year, RightsCon is breaking records across the board. We received an astounding 1880+ session proposals from 1195+ institutions – a 30 percent increase from 2020, our previous Call for Proposals record, and a staggering 60 percent increase from 2022.
