Ars aequi: Series 04 Episode 03 – Protests and digital defense on Apple Podcasts


Another episode of Ars aequi is ONLINE! In this episode of the Tech for Good Series, we explore the impact of technology on the landscape of protests and civil organisation.

We examine the positive and negative effects that developments in communication technology and social media have had on mobilisation and protests. We discuss the use of technology as an anti-protest device to supress movements using facial recognition, drones and internet shutdowns. Finally, we provide our listeners with some tech for good solutions, which can be used as digital self-defence mechanism.
