Global Network Initiative invites applications for the Emerging Voices Fellowship Programme for organizations in 2021. The fellowship program seeks to further online freedom of expression and privacy around the world by facilitating collaboration and conversation among diverse stakeholders.
The Sustaining Multistakeholder Networks for Internet Freedom (SuNI) project aims to protect and advance online freedom of expression and privacy by establishing and enhancing connections between civil society and ICT companies. The goal is to improve civil society’s ability to advocate directly with large technology companies in order to improve those companies’ policies, as well as to foster greater coordination and collaboration between civil society and ICT companies on shared priorities. The project is an extension of a previous iteration of the project, Enhancing Multistakeholder Collaboration on Internet Freedom, which was previously conducted in coordination with Internews.
The current and previous iterations of the project build upon GNI’s multistakeholder model and convening structures to foster collaborative advocacy between companies and civil society in support of laws and policies that protect and enhance freedom of expression and privacy.
