Cameras Everywhere Report 2011 - Key Recommendations
Governmental, foundation and private donors play a critical role in conducting and supporting research, activism and advocacy on issues related to human rights and technology. To increase impact, their funding need to become more transparent, accessible, harmonized and less risk-averse.
- Increase transparency in funding around who is funding what and how.
- Collaborate with other funders, investors and technology developers: Create multi-donor spaces on technology and human rights, including emerging crowdfunding platforms, as well as new donors outside U.S./Europe, and create both joint funding mechanisms with investors and review boards that can assess risk in proposals.
- Collaborate more, compete less: Create a human rights-technology network, coordinate cross-platform discussions and engage with key policymakers, civil society, media, business and technology funders/investors, and develop human rights principles for investments in information and communications technologies.
- Lead in developing effective monitoring and evaluations methodologies for human rights and technologies.
