This is a joint session from Equinet and the Commonwealth Forum of National Human Rights Institutions (CFNHRI), which is chaired by the Equality and Human Rights Commission of Great Britain (EHRC).
As technologies evolve, so do our responsibilities to protect equality and human rights. Whether in terms of employment, healthcare, social security, access to justice, and the protection of marginalised groups, technologies such as artificial intelligence can enhance or undermine existing protections.
This webinar will:
- Look at how emergent technologies have transformed our responsibilities for equality and human rights, and how the rights community, including National Human Rights Institutions (NHRIs) and National Equality Bodies (NEBs), can respond.
- Feature NHRIs and NEBs who have brought technology-enabled discrimination cases to court, advised parliaments and governments on bringing legislation and regulation into the AI-age, and engaged with civil society to understand how we can build in human rights at the ground level. Each will offer examples to contextualise the conversation and set the scene for further discussion from the participants.
- Make explicit the myriad of ways emergent technologies can impact on equality and human rights, through the unique mandate and expertise of NEBs and NHRIs.
Both online and off, it is vital that we can protect human rights and equality for all across the globe.
