Join us to make tech work for democracy and human rights

Purpose

Tech for Democracy is a Danish-led initiative that brings together representatives from governments, multilateral organisations, tech industry and civil society to make technology work for democracy and human rights, not against them.

More than ever, technology is changing the world, transforming how we communicate, inform ourselves and make decisions.

Digital solutions can promote human rights, bring people closer to the decisions that influence their lives and make democratic institutions stronger and more responsive. Yet online, expectations and aspirations for democracy have not fully been met. Digital technologies pose a severe threat to democracies globally and our democratic practices. 

This calls for joint action.

In November 2021, we kicked off a multi-stakeholder dialogue and laid the ground for a year of action with our Days of Action and a big, virtual conference hosted by Jeppe Kofod, the Danish Minister for Foreign Affairs, and Flemming Møller Mortensen, Minister for Development Cooperation, on 18 November.
