Hi, what are you looking for?

Announcing our first MediaNama Talk: A draft law for regulating Aarogya Setu and contact tracing; July 16 #Ad

We are pleased to announce MediaNama Talks, a new series we’re beginning at MediaNama, where we invite researchers and experts to share their work with us. We hope, with this initiative, to be able to showcase some of the great research being done in India, and to make that work more accessible to a wider community and cross-section of stakeholders.

Our first talk (details below) is from Divij Joshi and Shashank Mohan, who have prepared a draft legislation for regulating Aarogya Setu and digital surveillance related to COVID-19. Called the Draft Coronavirus Digital Technologies Act, it provides structure for independent oversight and rights-respective governance of Aarogya Setu and other similar technologies by the Central and State Governments alike.

MediaNama had also published a summary post which links to the paper and report.

Divij is an independent lawyer and researcher, who studies technology law, governance and regulation. He is currently a Mozilla Technology Policy Fellow.

Shashank is a Delhi based lawyer and tech-policy researcher, with a focus on privacy and free speech. His work has covered subject areas of data protection, intermediary liability, intellectual property, and artificial intelligence. He’s currently a Project Manager with the Centre for Communication Governance at the NLU Delhi.
