ABOUT THE ROLE
Amnesty International is launching a highly ambitious programme of work to make the internet a healthy, safe space for children and young people. This programme is based on Amnesty Tech’s ground-breaking digital surveillance work and embedded in Amnesty’s new Global Children & Youth Strategy.
Are you interested in being part of this exciting project that works across the Amnesty Tech and Children & Youth Programmes? We’re looking for an outstanding and creative campaigner to develop Amnesty International’s campaigns on the human rights impacts of digital technologies on children and young people’s digital rights, particularly in relation to their health and well-being.
As well as delivering a global programme of work led by the International Secretariate, we are developing local projects in several countries and regions. In collaboration with a global community of activists, advocates and campaigners we will strive to protect their rights and well-being in the digital world, as well as enable children and young peoples’ engagement and leadership.
To increase diversity and build an inclusive team we encourage applications from the global south.
The Children and Young People’s Digital Rights Campaigner, positioned in the Children’s Digital Rights Team of Amnesty Tech, will be an integral role in meeting Amnesty Tech’s goal of documenting and exposing the impact of Artificial Intelligence, big data systems, and surveillance-based business models on the health and well-being of children and young people.
You will work directly with young people to research not just the impact of online abuse, harassment, unlawful targeted surveillance and discrimination against children and young people, but also research, conceptualise and deliver campaigns and actions that will bring about positive change with and for children and young people around the world.
This role will work directly with the CDR Researcher and Amnesty International’s Youth Programme to develop children and young people’s knowledge of digital rights and the nature of technology and its impact on their health and well-being. Together these teams will build an inclusive narrative and campaign to re-imagine a rights-respecting ecosystem allowing Amnesty International to respond in real time to emerging and changing policy and legal frameworks that regulate Big Tech platforms and build a world where online platforms and other digital technologies are safe, healthy and supportive spaces for children and young people, helping them realize their human rights.
You should apply for this position if you are an experienced campaigner with a proven track record in working collaboratively and in a participatory manner to bring about positive change in the world. You will take and create opportunities to try out innovative campaigning methods, build partnerships with relevant stakeholders including in the technology sector, and create non-traditional collaborations between technologists and human rights activists.
You will bring to the organization and the position an understanding of equal opportunities, cultural diversity, anti-racism and gender issues as well as a commitment to apply relevant policies and practices.
