Baithak : Conversations in Policy
Baithak: Conversations in Policy is CCS Academy’s new initiative for fostering continued learning and development of CCS and FNF graduates through open group discussions in an informal group setting and in the presence of prominent voices from the liberal movement in India.
Following the success of the first Baithak, CCS and FNF have invited Nikhil Pahwa to participate in and moderate the second Baithak. Nikhil co-founded Savetheinternet.in campaign (now the Internet Freedom Foundation) for Net Neutrality in India. He is a journalist, an entrepreneur, an activist and a TED fellow who is also the founder and editor at MediaNama.
Nikhil is currently a part of an initiative to fix Aadhaar in addition to other initiatives geared towards tech policy.
The discussion will be centered around digital rights and freedom of expression where Nikhil will draw upon his experiences in online media advocacy and movement building. In addition, other topics such as net neutrality and data protection will be explored.
About: Centre for Civil Society along with Friedrich Naumann Foundation is organizing the forthcoming ‘Baithak: Conversations in Policy’ on the 29th of September from 4 – 6 p.m. at A-69, Haus Khas, New Delhi. If you have been associated with CCS or FNF in the past and have attended any of their programs, this is the platform for you to come together in a more informal setting for a discussion on contemporary socio-cultural and economic issues.
