The first report under the Greater Internet Program assesses current digital safety and internet freedom challenges in select Asia-Pacific countries, and aims to contribute to advocacy around strengthening the protection of human rights.
EngageMedia’s report analyses the violations, restrictions, and limitations on information, communication, and digital rights that undermine digitally-mediated freedom of religion or belief and freedom of expression in Indonesia.
The “Challenging hate narratives and violations of freedom of religion and expression online in Asia” project aims to catalyse civil society to freely and safely express their opinions and to generate counter narratives in instances where hate speech is propagated online.
The Advancing Data Justice Research and Practice project aims to fill the gap in data justice research and expand existing narratives to include testimonies from unheard and/or underrepresented voices. Through this, we aim to provide resources that help policymakers, practitioners, and impacted communities gain a broader understanding of data governance.
The use of artificial intelligence (AI) technologies is growing in Southeast Asia. In partnership with researcher Dr Jun-E Tan, EngageMedia has produced research that aims to provide an understanding of AI and its governance from the perspective of civil society in Southeast Asia.
How can filmmakers and video producers ensure that they can maximise their works’ potential to create impact? To answer this, EngageMedia and In-Docs have partnered together to host the Impact Talks, a series of public meetings to share and discuss experiences and ideas around creating impact through film in the Asia-Pacific.
Despite various digital rights violations in the Asia-Pacific, there are not enough films that document these issues in the region. Through “Tech Tales: Films about digital rights in the Asia-Pacific”, EngageMedia will help produce eight to ten films about digital rights in the region.
#HumanOnTheLine is a public campaign initiated by EngageMedia to raise awareness about digital rights and digital safety in Thailand. Through this campaign, we want to create more spaces for the Thai people to discuss these problems, and advocate for solutions on how to learn more about and protect their digital rights.
