Access Now hosted our eighth RightsCon summit in Tunis, Tunisia from June 11 to 14, 2019. It was a historic event with nearly 3000 participants from 122 countries, featuring our most strategic and connected program yet.
Our annual Outcomes Report celebrates the launches and outcomes achieved over the four days. This year’s report identifies emerging trends, highlights the RightsCon learnings across each program track, features a report-back on our new strategic Solve My Problem format, and details the many statements, reports, meetings, and coalitions formed in Tunis.
