Report Launch: The State of Digital Rights 2021

Start: 2022-03-03 13:00:00 UTC Australian Eastern Daylight Time (GMT+11:00)

This is a virtual event

Each year, Digital Rights Watch gathers a number of Australia's leading activists, writers, and critical thinkers to reflect on the major digital rights issues of the year.

2021 was another big year in digital rights and tech policy in Australia. In the report, our contributors reflect on:

  • increased surveillance under the pandemic from our borders, to our devices, to our workplaces,
  • the implications of Australia's "world-leading" legislation including the News Media Bargaining Code and the swathe of online safety regulations,
  • the privacy and inclusion woes of the 2021 Census,
  • and a growing movement to decolonise digital technologies.

Join us on 3 March 2022 to celebrate the launch of the report, and to hear from a range of speakers on the year that was 2021, and what they expect from 2022.
