Media Matters for Democracy through its initiative Report Digital Rights has initiated a program to engage with journalists and lawyers, to assist them in understanding the various new technologies in the context of digital rights and the concepts and challenges of Internet governance.
The program was specifically initiated to help journalists understand and report better on digital developments and policymaking specifically with regards to human rights online, and to help lawyers to understand the key technological concepts for litigation in pursuance of human rights online.
Are you a journalist reporting on technology? Do you struggle to understand complex tech-related issues & polices?
Don't worry, we've got you! Join us for a session in Islamabad on simplifying tech on 16th October 2019, 12-4 PM.

Speaking about the importance of this program, the founder of MMFD Asad Baig said, “the registration for the session was announced through MMFD’s social media accounts, and in response, we got a massive number of requests for participation. Unfortunately, we had seats to cater to less than 10% of the registrants, but this goes on to show the demand of knowledge”.
The first two pilot sessions were conducted by Asad Baig with selected lawyers and journalists. Stay tuned to our page for information on upcoming sessions.
We recvd an overwhelming number of participation requests for this session, but unfortunately had seats for only 15.
To those who registered but couldn't be accommodated in this session: rest assured we will host more sessions until all of those who have registered r catered to.
