The digital revolution is shaking the foundations of our societies and the immediate rollout of AI technologies promises even more societal disruption. These technologies bring new opportunities for the enjoyment of human rights, but also new threats to their protection.

Policymakers around the world and at all levels of government are becoming more convinced of the need to ensure that digital technologies and AI serve the people and not the other way around. Club de Madrid and Boston Global Forum have partnered to narrow this gap between the digital and the policy word. Our joint Policy Lab aims to build consensus around a rights-based agenda for the global governance of AI and digital societies.
