By Kyle Matthews and Marie Lamensch

In June 2021, the Montreal Institute for Genocide and Human Rights  Studies and its many partners held the annual  #RightsCity conference.  The event, which was held online, brought together some of the world’s leading experts to examine and discuss the threats and opportunities brought on by the digital revolution as it relates to human rights and democracy.

We are pleased to share with you the “Human Rights in the Digital Age: Rights City 2021 Conference Report”, which was drafted by Alexandra Buskie. The report summarizes the main take-aways from the conference and features concrete recommendations for the government of Canada, social media companies, and civil society. The report is available in English and French.

In case you missed the conference, you can also watch all the panel discussions on MIGS’ YouTube page.

#RightsCity 2021 was funded by the Canadian Department of National Defence and carried out in partnership with the Raoul Wallenberg Center for Human Rights, the University of Ottawa’s Human Rights Research and Education Center, the Embassy of the Kingdom of the Netherlands to Canada, the Global Action Against Mass Atrocity Crimes initiative, the Embassy of the United States to Canada, and held under the patronage of the Canadian Commission for UNESCO.
