Youth Expert on Inclusive Digital Rights at UN Convention

Kashvi Chandok

Kashvi Chandok, a graduate student and Martin H Steiner scholar at the School of International Affairs, American University has recently made an impact as a Youth Expert on inclusive digital rights at the United Nations Convention for the Status of Women conferences. As a champion of gender equality, Kashvi drew attention to the urgent need to regulate surveillance technologies on the global stage, as women journalists and human rights defenders continue to face disproportionate harm from their unchecked use.

Kashvi's participation on the panel was a testament to her expertise and dedication to promoting inclusive and equitable access to digital rights. Her insights shed light on the pressing issues facing women and other marginalized groups in the face of emerging technologies, and helped to galvanize support for international efforts to establish meaningful regulations to protect their rights.
