Hi everybody,

Apologies for cross-posting, but we would like to extend this invitation
to those of you who are attending the IGF to join us on 28 November for
the official launch of GISWatch 2019 on the theme of "Artificial
intelligence: Human Rights, Social Justice and Development".

Please feel free to share the message below with your networks, and hope
to see you at the launch!

*   *   *

We are very excited to let you know that the 2019 edition of Global
Information Society Watch (GISWatch) will be launching at the IGF in
Berlin on 28 November!

This year, in partnership with ARTICLE 19 and with the support of Sida,
we have put together a thought-provoking edition that addresses an
important topic: the intersection of artificial intelligence and the
various implications for human rights, social justice and development.

The 2019 GISWatch report brings together 43 country and regional reports
from across the globe, with a particular focus on the global South. In
addition, the eight thematic reports are written by a diverse group of
knowledgeable researchers and civil society activists addressing key
topics such as AI through a transfeminist framework, the policing of
people and the weaponisation of AI, among many other topics.

Many of the authors will be in attendance to present their reports, and
we hope you will join us as we launch this important collection!

Date: Thursday, 28 November 2019
Time: 13.00-14.30 local time
Where: Room IV (IGF venue)
