Coding Rights Projetos Educacionais
Coding Rights is a Brazil-based women-run organization working since 2015 to expose and redress the power imbalances built into technology and its application, particularly those which reinforce gender and North/South inequalities. They perform multidisciplinary research to hack public policy in order to reinforce human rights values into the usages of technologies.
Their goal is to ensure that policy making affecting technological development and digital rights are informed by actual technological knowledge, and that technological development is guided by fundamental Human Rights. So that both legal and technical Codes converge to promote and protect Rights.
Understanding and using legal and technical Codes for promoting and protecting Rights is a multidisciplinary task. So they operate as a laboratory, using applied research in Social and Computer Sciences, artistic creativity, communications planing and coding as their core tools for their projects. They might be focused on producing deliveries such as applied research for public policy, capacity building, advocacy strategies, policy papers, workshops, seminars, data visualizations, technological platforms and applications or even artwork meant to promote and implement advocacy strategies. processes.
