The Impact of Social Media on Human Rights

This was a panel at the Human Rights Weekend in Amsterdam, organized by Human Rights Watched to discuss the impact of social media on human rights in light of surveillance, privacy, information accuracy and even trolls.

I talked about the work that Bahrain Watch does in relation to cyber security and investigation surveillance, as well as my research on the impact of images of refugees that media outlets publish, on people’s emotions and attitudes.
