Digital Welfare State

A Litigation Strategy on the Digital Welfare State

Since early 2019, the Digital Freedom Fund has been discussing with litigators, activists and technologists how the digital welfare state impacts human rights.

In these conversations, stakeholders shared dream cases and explored desired objectives of litigation. In the first half of 2020, DFF has, in collaboration with De Argumentenfabriek (The Argumentation Factory), distilled these conversations into the foundation of a litigation strategy on the digital welfare state. Our digital welfare state litigation strategy is the outcome of this process.

The purpose of this litigation strategy is to inspire deeper conversations on how strategic litigation could be used as part of a broader strategy to address the harms of the digital welfare state. The conversation on these issues is ongoing, and DFF welcomes further input and views on this litigation strategy.
