The participants will hear and discuss about the element of our daily lives – the internet. Considered by the Constitutional Council, the internet access is as a fundamental freedom for free expression of ideas and opinions which is essential to the democracy development.

Driven by the question “Digital tools – an opportunity to strengthen human rights or a threat that compromise them?” the experts will analyse their work, participate at round tables and measure the impact of digital tools on the human rights and democratic practices.

This event is organised by the Lower Normandy Region, the International Institute for Peace and Human Rights (Caen, France), ALDA and the Metamorphosis Foundation (Skopje, Macedonia) in the framework of the Decentralized cooperation programme between the Region Lower Normandy and Macedonia, and the Network France-Balkans.
