The Institute of Technology and Society (ITS) yearly invites researchers, graduate students, as well as professionals working with technology policy to apply to its Global Policy Fellowship Program. Our Global Fellows have the unique opportunity to work with the team who conceived and developed the landmark “Marco Civil” legislation, a bill protecting fundamental rights, including privacy, net neutrality and freedom of expression, approved as law in Brazil in April 2014. They also spend a month in Brazil, and collaborate with the ITS team for a year.
The ITS Fellowship Program offers the opportunity for those interested in internet and technology policy to deepen their knowledge about the Brazilian technology context. Fellows are welcomed with an intensive program for our fellows, which include visits to the biggest technology companies operating in Brazil, the Brazilian Internet Steering Committee (CGI.br) and visits to São Paulo and Brasília, including representatives from the Ministry of Justice, Ministry of Culture and Congressmen who are advocating for policies related to internet and technology.
