8ste editie van het jaarlijks Privacy Camp waar activisten, beleidsmakers en onderzoekers samenkomen rond thema’s ivm mensenrechten in een digitale omgeving. Het Privacy Camp vindt steeds plaats daags voor de CPDP conferentie.

For the 8th edition, Privacy Camp takes Technology and Activism as its focus. Over the last decade, digital technologies have played a significant role in activism by mobilising social protests, fostering new forms of civil disobedience, or simply by facilitating the coordination of activist work in the analogue world. Some scholars assigned particular value to the networked nature of cyberspace, arguing that this structure enables people to communicate and take action outside of traditional hierarchical power structures. However, networked information systems also enhance the surveillance power of repressive regimes.

Going beyond cyber-optimist and cyber-pessimist arguments, Privacy Camp 2020 will seek to explore further dynamics in the activist-technology entanglements. Together with activists from diverse fields and scholars working at the intersection of technology and activism, Privacy Camp 2020 will cover a broad range of practices and issues including surveillance, censorship, civic participation in information policy making, social media and political dissent, online civil disobedience, data justice, data activism, commons and peer production, citizen science and more.

Possible maker projects may include, but are not limited to: DIY hardware, biohacking tools, wearables, bots, DIY air quality sensors, experiments with glitch and stitch.
