For over a decade, Jigsaw has explored some of the biggest challenges facing democracies — shrinking civil discourse, rampant disinformation, the spread of extremism, polarization, and the growing use of technology to restrict the enjoyment of human rights. Inspired by their work with policy experts, academic researchers, technologists, and frontline activists, Jigsaw will host a panel discussion to address the technological tactics being used by authoritarian regimes today. The panel will explore multilateral strategies to uphold human rights and recommendations that can be used to defend democracy in the digital age. Jigsaw will also present specific examples that demonstrate their long track record of using technology to directly support democracy, with an emphasis on innovations that have had real world, measurable impact.
