RightsCon Southeast Asia 2015

by EM News November 06, 2014
We've launched our proposal form for #RightsCon Southeast Asia scheduled for March 24-25 in Manila!

We are delighted to announce that we have confirmed the dates and location for RightsCon Southeast AsiaThis March 24-25, 2015, we will gather at the Crowne Plaza Hotel in Manila - so mark your calendars now!

RightsCon Southeast Asia’s agenda will focus on regional and global challenges that you will undoubtedly recognize to be of critical importance - like data protection, privacy, freedom of expression, infrastructure development, surveillance, and limiting risk in the ICT sector.

As you are aware, RightsCons are more than just gatherings of talking heads. At RightsCon Southeast Asia, we will have a mixture of interactive and participant-driven sessions, host strategy and implementation sessions, and provide opportunities for the private sector, government decision-makers, civil society and academics to meet face to face.
