Hope in Crisis | Rights, Democracy, and Technology

This unprecedented time has shown the world cracks in the old systems. But it's also given us opportunities to change, reset, and envision a different future. We want to find out: what's the way forward - what's the hope in crisis?
We talk about rights and democracy, and how technology enables or disables them.
