Our Impact & Engagement

The Human Rights, Big Data and Technology Project focuses mainly on the United Nations space in engaging its key stakeholder groups.

The key stakeholder groups for the Project are States, businesses, international human rights and humanitarian institutions, and human rights and humanitarian non-governmental organisations. The United Nations system has been the main arena in which States and non-State actors have so far sought to address a wide-range of issues and implications related to technology and big data.

The UN system, with its comprehensive mandate, global remit, universality of membership and engagement with multi-stakeholders, provides a vital space to advance our research goals and maximize the impact of the Project.

The Project will utilise this space to contribute directly to the agenda, shape the debate, formulate responses that create awareness and propose regulatory solutions.
