SELECTED PROJECT 2020

Multicultural digital rights frameworks for indigenous and afro-descendent communities in Bolivia: comparative analysis and public policy advocacy.

PURPOSE

This project will develop contextualized regulatory frameworks for internet access and the protection of personal data in select Bolivian municipalities.

OBJECTIVE

For Bolivia to have a municipal regulatory framework that addresses internet access and the protection of personal data with a multicultural perspective.

CONTEXT

In Bolivia, indigenous communities represent 40% of the population, and the majority live in rural areas. The digital gap indices are high between its rural (21.5%) and urban (62.6%) areas. Furthermore, the absence of a comprehensive regulatory framework for the protection of personal data increases exclusion despite the lack of digital literacy among indigenous communities.

In the absence of a national personal data protection law, there is no safeguard for the data of the indigenous population.

Expected results benefitting the population:

– Advocate in the creation of legislative frameworks addressing internet access and the protection of personal data at the municipal level with a multicultural approach.
– The development of digital rights capacities among political and social leaders and academics.
– Advocate in the development and approval of laws on internet access and the protection of personal data at the municipal level.
