Application Deadline: March 2nd 2022
ARTICLE 19’s Team Digital is looking for public interest advocates to join the 2022-2023 Internet of Rights (IoR) Fellowship as part of the individual fellow’s cohort. This is a 12-month fellowship, beginning in April 2022.
The general goals of the IoR Fellowship are:
● To protect and promote freedom of expression, freedom of association, privacy, and other human rights in key Internet technical standards and policy bodies.
● To bridge the knowledge gap in these bodies regarding human rights and their relevance to Internet infrastructure.
● To support sustained and effective participation of civil society advocates in Internet technical standards and policy bodies.
● To support and champion the consideration of underrepresented people and communities in decision-making processes within these bodies.
The Fellowship runs for 12 months, beginning on April 1, 2022. During this year, each fellow will work closely with their mentor—a designated member of A19’s Team Digital. All fellows follow one of three tracks: Censorship, Connectivity, or Datafication.
