Crowdsourcing Freedom: An Interview with David Keyes

You are here

This 2015 resource is the transcript of an interview with David Keyes, founder of a Google-funded crowdsourcing platform, which links human rights activists from closed societies with people around the world who can help them. The platform gives people the ability to connect directly with activists on the front line. David Keyes is the executive director of Advancing Human Rights and is working on new ways to spread political freedom globally through online platforms.

This resource will be of interest to researchers and practitioners interested in the ways that crowd sourced information can be applied, including within the context of PVE. The interview provides some significant insights into both the online and in-real-life (IRL) context and political environment surrounding the creation and aims of the crowdsourcing platform.
