Skill building and networking

Skill building and networking

The Digital Freedom Fund facilitates networking, skill building and movement-strengthening initiatives amongst those seeking to support digital rights in Europe through strategic litigation.

In July and October 2018, DFF and SHARE Foundation co-hosted two Strategic Litigation Retreats in Montenegro and Serbia respectively. At the retreats, litigators from across Europe gathered to engage with crucial aspects of successful strategic litigation, workshop ongoing cases, and strengthen collaboration between them. You can learn more about the retreats in the short documentary below filmed at the retreat in Montenegro.

In January 2019, DFF facilitated a virtual strategy design jam exploring potential litigation scenarios related to the expanding use of artificial intelligence in law enforcement.

In May 2019, DFF funded a workshop exploring successful litigation strategies to challenge General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) violations. The meeting was organised by Access Now and noyb.

In June 2019, DFF organised a transatlantic meeting in Amsterdam, bringing together academics, law clinics and practitioners, to explore how the digital rights field can better connect with academia.

In the second half of 2019, DFF will facilitate more skill building events focusing on key issues in strategic litigation, including AI and human rights and using the competition law framework to advance digital rights. See DFF’s blog page and Twitter for the latest events and updates.
