HelloCoolWorld.com : Welcome! Why trade is not the place for the EU to negotiate privacy Argument for including privacy in trade agreements The basic argument for including privacy in trade agreements is twofold. First, trade agreements attempt to lower barriers between regimes and reduce the friction inherent in conducting transnational business. Thus trade agreements already contain many attempts at regulatory harmonisation, or at least constructing interfaces between regulatory regimes. There is an exception to regulatory harmonisation at the World Trade Organisation that specifically addresses privacy, but a new free trade agreement could negotiate around this exception.[7] Second, trade agreements do involve a more formal negotiating process than, say, the Safe Harbor. If a more extended process leads to consensus building, then perhaps the EU and the US could arrive at a better compromise through trade. EU representatives are rightly sceptical of negotiating data protection in the free trade regime.

Follow the Money: a Digital Guide for Tracking Corruption The digital age has profoundly transformed the way people find and share information. The Internet is enabling collaboration between activists, hackers and journalists on an unprecedented scale. This has led to previously unimaginable possibilities in investigative reporting. People are newly empowered to uncover hidden information, expose corruption and bring the truth to light. Through a series of short films, Exposing the Invisible tells the personal stories of those working at the new frontiers of investigation. We explore their tools and methods and learn how they manage the risks of information activism. We hope that Exposing the Invisible will inspire a new generation of people committed to transparency and accountability. New movies will be uploaded to our website regularly. This project would not have been made possible without our sponsors and all the people who have contributed. If you watched the films, it would be great to know what you thought.

GPS bracelet uses social media to protect Civil Rights Activists The Civil Rights Defenders have issued their first batch of GPS bracelets that will alert the CRDs' headquarters, other nearby activists, and the entirety of the CRDs' social media following if the bracelet's owner is ever kidnapped. The first 5 bracelets were issued from April 2nd through April 5th during the Civil Rights Defenders' conference, Defenders' Days. The CRD plans on issuing 55 of these bracelets over the next year and a half. The bracelets are described as a personal alarm, and the product is called the "Natalia Project". It was named after Natalia Estemirova, a human rights defender who, in 2009, was murdered within 24 hours of being kidnapped. The GPS bracelet can be activated manually, or if an attacker forcefully removes it from the activist's wrist. The Civil Rights Defenders state that these bracelets could potentially alert hundreds of thousands of people instantly.

Publishers Know You Didn't Finish "The Goldfinch" — Here's What That Means Fo... How Mesh Networking Empowers Mobile Activism Mobile activism has proven to be a cornerstone of modern tactics used to hold governments and organizations accountable. Yet as we have seen multiple times across the globe in recent years, when large scale protests erupt, or governments feel threatened, the result is sometimes the shutdown of mobile networks. These events can have substantial impacts felt across the economy, services digital and physical, not to mention the obvious massive communication disruptions. Such events have even led groups to look into recognizing mobile network access as a fundamental human right. Where there is a will, there is a way, and clever protesters in China have found a way to get around mobile network shutdowns aimed at disrupting their ability to organize protests. A Network In Your Pocket Aside from impeding communications efforts altogether, activists also live with the concern that their communications might be monitored by authorities.
