A Human Rights Approach to Ukraine's Rapid Digitalization

February 22, 2024 • 10:00 – 11:00 am EST

Ukraine is one of the most digitally advanced and integrated societies anywhere in the world. As the government of Ukraine and its international partners look to the post-war future and begin planning for reconstruction, the country's rapid and widespread digitalization presents both unprecedented opportunities and risks. 

Join CSIS for a virtual event on a human rights-centered approach to Ukraine's digitalization, including guardrails around facial recognition, cybersecurity, and online accessibility. The panel will feature Tetiana Avdieieva, Senior Legal Counsel at the Digital Security Lab Ukraine and Member of the Expert Committee on AI under the Ministry of Digital Transformation of Ukraine; Gulsanna Mamediieva, Tech & Public Policy Fellow and Adjunct Professor at Georgetown University's McCourt School of Public Policy and Adviser to the Vice Prime Minister for Innovations, Development of Education, Science & Technologies under the Ministry of Digital Transformation of Ukraine; and Lucie Audibert, Senior Lawyer and Legal Officer at Privacy International. Caitlin Chin-Rothmann, Fellow for the Strategic Technologies Program at CSIS, will moderate the conversation.

This event was made possible through the generous support of the Open Society Foundations.
