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

PROJECT 2021
Women for digital rights and technology in Bolivia
PURPOSE

To achieve greater participation and inclusion of the perspective of women in debates on solutions for digital inclusion and data protection in Bolivia.

OBJECTIVE

We seek to achieve our objective through the training of women activists, leaders, public officials, authorities and journalists. We want to provide them with materials and knowledge, in a coordinated manner, so they can create their proposals for laws and policies on technology in Bolivia, and thus promote a digital future with gender perspective.

CONTEXT

The pandemic created a greater need for access and use of digital technologies in Bolivia. With this need came debate and new regulations and/or public policies to promote digitalization. However, it is necessary to enhance the participation and inclusion of women in these debates to ensure that the digital future of Bolivia also has their perspective.

Regulations and/or policies on technologies stagnate due to poor social support, it’s a consequence that could result from not addressing this topic

Expected results benefitting the population:
  • Greater production of policies/regulations on digital rights in Bolivia.
  • Greater representativeness and legitimacy in public policies and regulations on digital rights (that include everyone’s insights).
  • Greater social participation in debates on digital rights in Bolivia.
  • Greater momentum for proposals for regulations and policies to strengthen digital rights in Bolivia.
  • Greater intellectual production and reflection about the needs for digital rights in Bolivia.

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.
