The Centre for Democracy and Technology (CDT), based in Washington, D.C. and Brussels, is a leading technology policy organisation that fights to advance human rights and democracy in the digital age. As a 27-year old nonpartisan nonprofit organisation, CDT works to promote democratic values by shaping technology policy and architecture, with a focus on equity and justice.
The Centre for Democracy & Technology, Europe works to ensure standards and laws relating to AI and machine learning respect human rights, and promote incentives for responsible use of automated technology. Building on principles established by the human rights community, CDT Europe’s guidance for a rights-based approach to the use of automated decision-making technology helps translate principles into action for lawmakers and for the private industry.
This consultancy would support CDT Europe’s work on advocating for human rights standards at the heart of the EU’s AI Act. It would require an average of 10 to 15 hours a week; this may increase during the final stages of the negotiation process. The expected timeframe on this project will be from September 2022 until December 2022, with the possibility of an extension.
