Our current activities

ESWA's Digital Rights Programme is funded by the European Artificial Intelligence and Society Fund and Luminate to develop advocacy and capacity-building activities as well as conducting research to ensure the voices of civil society, including marginalised communities such as sex workers, are included in debates and policy-making on artificial intelligence and digital rights.

ESWA has developed an exciting programme that will include consultations with its members on the impact of AI on sex workers’ rights, particularly in relation to surveillance, privacy and censorship. As part of its programme, ESWA creates resources such as policy papers and tool kits to advocate for the inclusion of sex workers in the digital rights field and the development of AI policies that do not infringe on sex workers’ rights – in particular, the most marginalised sex workers, such as undocumented, LGBTQI, or racialised sex workers. ESWA also conducts trainings for sex workers’ communities to build their capacity and knowledge of AI and digital rights.
