HRBDT Presentation to the European Youth Forum

On 23 October 2017, the European Youth Forum, a network of youth organisations in Europe that aims at empowering young people to actively participate in society and engage in advocacy, organised an expert group for consultation on the drafting the organisation’s position on opportunities and challenges in the digital economy.

Vivian Ng gave a presentation to members of the Forum on ‘Big Data and Human Rights’. She addressed the opportunities and challenges of big data and associated technologies for human rights and highlighted the importance of adopting a forward-looking perspective on the future development of these technologies. She also engaged in a Q&A with participants, addressing questions about the gender digital divide, the right to privacy, and the impact of developments such as social credit scoring systems.
