Indela works to advance digital rights in law and policy across Latin America. It also seeks to support the organizations and ecosystem of actors working to protect those rights. Ultimately, we believe that protecting the rights of Internet users will support greater civic participation, and more empowered, inclusive and accountable societies.
How we make a difference
We shape our funding priorities with active input from the field and regional experts. Our priorities currently are:
- Advancing laws and policies that protect rights, such as access to knowledge, freedom of expression and privacy in the online environment. We also strive to ensure that equality and inclusion are considered in the development of these laws and policies, as well as their enforcement;
- Ensuring the work of the digital rights’ field is grounded in strong research and analysis that can be applied in the development of powerful policy proposals, public exposés, and litigation strategies, etc.;
- Supporting advocates in the design of targeted advocacy and public awareness campaigns, to shape public and policymaker opinions and mobilize constituents in support of necessary changes;
- Facilitating the enforcement of relevant policies, laws, and regulations to ensure human rights are protected online, and that those in power are held to account; and
- Ensuring that technological developments – such as artificial intelligence, machine learning, algorithmic decision making – do not violate human rights or entrench inequalities.
