Meet us at RightsCon!

Laura Guzman

Will you be in Tunis for RightsCon 2019? We’d love to say hello! Here’s a quick run-down on who is going to be there from our team and some conversation starters should you want to reach out.

Paola M will be on the lookout for organisational security practitioners and community members who might be interested in learning more about – or participating in – our research on understanding the needs and challenges they face. She’ll also be sharing more about our responsible data approach, with openness and privacy as two sides of the responsible data coin, in this session about how open by default and privacy by design can coexist. Our recently-released work on how privacy and data protection fit together in the sharing of beneficial ownership data is a nice case study for how the two coexist. You can reach out to her at

Sivu will have digital ID on the brain, and will be leading a landmark session discussing our research so far, together with Koliwe, one of our Zimbabwe researchers. Get in touch with Sivu at

Zara will be joining this session about informed consent for refugees to share more about what we found when we looked into how biometric data is used in the humanitarian context in our work with Oxfam. You can reach out to Zara at

Julia’s keen to talk to people about their responsible data challenges and practices – if you’re not at RightsCon but would like to join the RD community, you can sign up to the mailing list here. You can reach her on

Anneke, our People Lead, is on the look out for other people who are building sustainable and healthy human resources policies in support of the well-being of their institutions and organisations. She wrote about our approach to well-being in this post.

And of course, we’re all eager to meet with people from civil society who are thinking about how data and tech can support and strengthen their mission.

While we’re there, we’ll be…

See you there!
