Digital Rights Discussion
Working for Digital Rights in Southeast Asia
Following the success of the RightsCon Southeast Asia event we co-hosted in Manila earlier this year, we've been writing, researching and organising and improve the state of digital rights in the region.

We highlight some of our work in this newsletter edition, beginning with an update on how digital freedom and privacy are under attack in Indonesia. Link

We want to create spaces for deeper conversations and strategies on pressing digital rights issues in Indonesia, so we conducted a meeting in Jakarta in collaboration with SAFENET, an Indonesian digital rights advocacy non-profit. Link

Expert speakers at the Digital Laws Update, a public forum we held in Bangkok with Thai Netizen, presented their critique of pending internet laws in Thailand. The junta cabinet passed the eight new draft bills under the banner of “Digital Economy”. Link

Along with organising events, we have also been conducting research on digital rights in the region. Follow updates on those results and more on our blog.
