#RightsCon: At what cost? Telecoms and internet companies discuss internet shutdowns

Join the session organised by Access Now...

Bahrain Watch will be taking part in the #KeepItOn summit at #RightsCon in Brussels.

Thursday, March 30
Time: 9:00-10:15a | Location: Klimt

Technology and telecommunications companies sit at the very center of the internet shutdown crisis as governments order them to shut off the internet on a variety of pretexts. These decisions often have drastic economic impacts, which Deloitte, the Global Network Initiative, and the Brookings Institution have analyzed through groundbreaking studies. In this session, leading companies will join together to discuss internet shutdowns, including their efforts to push back against them.

Speakers: Chinmayi Arun (National Law Centre of New Delhi), Alaa Shehabi (Bahrain Watch), Bennett Freeman (Global Network Initiative), Yves Nissim (Orange), Alex Warofka (Facebook)
