The Institute for Technology and Society of Rio de Janeiro (itsrio.org) invites researchers, students and professionals working with technology policy to apply annually to its Global Policy Fellowship Program and spend four weeks in Brazil at ITS Rio.
Our Global Fellows have the opportunity to work with the team who created and developed Brazil’s Internet Bill of Rights (Marco Civil da Internet), a bill that guarantees and promotes the protection of fundamental rights, including privacy, net neutrality and freedom of expression. Furthermore, they are able to choose one of our four main areas of work to develop their research in, namely:
– Democracy & Technology (artificial intelligence, civic engagement, online participation, and others)
– Rights & Technology (connectivity, freedom of expression, privacy and others topics on Internet regulation)
– Education (intellectual property, digital entrepreneurship, online teaching, and others)
– Rethinking Innovation (blockchain, new models of development, economic and social processes, and others)
