The Tech for Democracy initiative is a multi-stakeholder push for protecting and promoting democracy and human rights in an era of rapid technological development launched in 2021.
Tech for Democracy connects representatives from governments, multilateral organisations, the tech industry, and civil society from global as well as local civil society organisations and activists.
The Action Coalitions target specific issues in the intersection of tech, democracy and human rights. Coalition partners will engage in concrete activities and deliver concrete solutions in line with the Copenhagen Pledge. An Action Coalition is a collaboration between public and private stakeholders from the tech industry, civil society, multilateral organizations and states. The aim of the Action Coalitions is to deliver innovative and local solutions and exemplify how we can promote change on our path ahead.
