Digital Technologies and Development: Mobilization, Censorship, Entrepreneurship and Copyright

From: 6/9/2015   To: 6/9/2015

 

The Access to Knowledge for Development Center (A2K4D) at the School of Business of The American University in Cairo (AUC) is hosting its fifth annual workshop on Tuesday, June 9th, 2015 from 3:30 - 8:30 at the Oriental Hall, AUC Tahrir Campus. 

 

This year’s workshop is titled “Digital Technologies and Development: Mobilization, Censorship, Entrepreneurship and Copyright.” The aim of the workshop is to share outputs of A2K4D research in collaboration with our academic partners within various networks and highlight our work in progress.

 

The workshop will consist of short sessions with emphasis on lively debates. We will cover topics ranging from the role of digital technologies in civic participation, to censorship and copyright in the digital economy, and the role of entrepreneurship in development. In the last session we will also share the reflections of both the A2K4D team and AUC students on their experience with Harvard Law School’s networked course CopyrightX, taught this spring at AUC under the title “The Economics of Copyright and Creativity.”

 

We will be welcoming our partners from Harvard's Berkman Center for Internet and Society, Yale Law School's Information Society Project (ISP), members of the Access to Knowledge Global Academy, Innova Tunisia, Arab Policy Institute (API) and Canada’s International Development Research Center (IDRC).

 

We look forward to welcoming you!
