Disruption Network Lab is an ongoing platform of events and research focused on the intersection of politics, technology and society. We are a Berlin-based nonprofit organisation in Germany (Disruption Network Lab e. V.) that has since 2014 organised participatory, interdisciplinary, international events at the intersection of human rights and technology with the objective of strengthening freedom of speech, and exposing the misconduct and wrongdoing of the powerful. Disruption Network Lab works within the framework of digital culture and information technology, shedding light on interventions that provoke political and social change. We offer a platform of discussion for whistleblowers, human right advocates, artists, hackers, journalists, lawyers and activists to present their experience, their research and their actions – with the objective to share ideas and visions for a free Internet and a modern democracy, and with the aim to strengthen human rights values and freedom of speech. We organise inter-disciplinary conferences and local meetups throughout the year in Berlin and internationally. The conference programme is run by Tatiana T_Bazz Bazzichelli (founder & director) and the “Activation” programme by Lieke Ploeger (community director), who are working together with a team of five people.
