Introducing the RightsCon Tunis Draft Program Session List

It’s time – the draft program with the Session List for RightsCon Tunis has arrived!

The Draft Program Session List is the first glimpse of RightsCon Tunis and the outcome of our annual call for proposals, showcasing the community-built sessions that will shape this year’s program.

The competition was steep, with over 900 high-quality session submissions received in our annual call for proposals. In three evaluation phases, that brought together over 60 experts from around the world, this list composes the sessions that have been accepted in full or merged with another like-minded proposal.

The Draft Program Session List is a first glimpse into what you can expect this year. It’s made up of workshops, strategic roundtables, fireside chats, meetups, and more, all led by organizations, companies, human rights advocates, and governments from more than 70 countries and 400 organizations. The program also features sessions in three languages – Arabic, French, and English – and is sourced from a majority female community of organizers.

Please keep in mind, this is just a sneak peek into the breadth and depth of the issues covered at RightsCon, organized thematically. In early May, you’ll receive access to our final program, where you can navigate the official program by “tracks and trails” to build your own personalized schedule.

Want to know who will be there? Check out a selection of our confirmed speakers to date (check back regularly, we add new ones daily!) and meet our Regional Champions, a group of the leading human rights and technology experts in the Middle East and North Africa providing guidance and thought leadership for a regionally-relevant program.

Together at RightsCon Tunis, whether working to preserve election integrity, counter online harassment, or strategizing for rights-respecting policies on emerging technologies, we’ll shape the future of human rights in the digital age.
