Since 2011, we have convened the human rights and technology community in key hubs around the world, including Tunis, Toronto, Brussels, Rio de Janeiro, Manila, and San Francisco. At the end of RightsCon Tunis in 2019, we announced our intention to bring RightsCon to San José, Costa Rica. Instead, in 2020, for the first time in the history of the summit, we embarked on a journey to somewhere entirely different and unexpected – creating a fully online RightsCon experience.

In transitioning from an in-person convening to an online summit, RightsCon 2020 established a critical platform for thousands of experts to connect, coordinate, and advance a shared agenda and for the decade ahead. It also allowed us to broaden our reach and increase participation from 2,979 participants at RightsCon Tunis in 2019, to 7,681 in 2020, meaning that RightsCon Online was not only the largest, but the most accessible iteration of our summit to date.
