  • I am an early career academic (PhD student) researching the impact of natural resource exploitation on human rights and specifically the governance of new technologies which both harm and protect the rights of individuals in such instances. A major area of interest to me is the role of social networks, and affordable technologies in this regard. I would like to attend the Activate Summit to both see some of the proposed influences of technology in my fields of research but also to pose questions to exhibitors and other attendees as to their views on how technology might improve the enforcement and protection of human rights.

  • I am a current Masters student studying Health Care Ethics and Medical Law. I am looking to do a PhD in this field, in particular with relation to technology within health care. I would like to attend the Activate Summit to see the new technologies that could influence health care and to see what developers, exhibitors and attendees believe the impact on both health care and the law could be. Knowing how long it takes for the law to react to new technologies, this would be an ideal opportunity to see how it might unfurl.

  • Thank you both for the submissions, and for those that submitted through Twitter. It was extremely difficult to choose, but John was finally selected. I hope he enjoyed the conference and benefited from it.
