Marin Silva Valent

I am a lawyer, dedicated to Internet Governance and other issues of Technology and Society. I've been working with human right and the civil society perspective toward new technologies, specially, freedom of expression, privacy and asymmetries in the impact of technology. I also focused in the process of developing technology. For instance, in Internet Governance I study and actively participate in regulatory and forum debates like the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN), the Internet Governance Forum (IGF) from the U.N. and the Internet Society (ISOC), responsible for the Internet Engineering Task Force (IETF) among other things. In these places I hold institutional positions of leadership and even voting rights in representation of Civil Society. Over the years I've worked with several NGOs and collaborated in projects with Universities around the world.
