OUR CONTENT/PROJECT WE THINK IS RELEVANT FOR THE NETWORK
Smart surveillance cameras have been installed in the streets of Belgrade without public participation, discussion of consequences, and regardless of the principles provided by the law and the Constitution. Together with a community of individuals and organisations, Hiljade kamera (“Thousands of Cameras”), platform was started, which advocates for the responsible use of surveillance technology. The goals of the platform are citizen-led transparency and holding officials accountable for their actions, by mapping cameras and informing the public on this topic. 
WHAT IS OUR SUPERPOWER?
Multidisciplinarity of our team makes us able to use a wide range of different methodologies in our work – which represents a place where cyber forensics, analysis and visualization of large amounts of data, cartography, media theory and philosophy intertwine.

ABOUT US
BIRN Hub is an umbrella entity that coordinates the work of the BIRN Network, an alliance of domestic non-governmental organisations promoting freedom of speech, human rights and democratic values. While each country organisation addresses domestic needs, BIRN Hub implements regional programmes.
OUR CONTENT/PROJECT WE THINK IS RELEVANT FOR THE NETWORK
In order to keep up with its mission to defend the public interest and to protect the right of citizens from Southern and Eastern Europe to be accurately informed on digitalisation of their lives and services, BIRN established the “Digital Rights Programme”. The programme is addressing emerging trends connected with the process of digital development of Southeastern and Central Europe, as well as the happenings in the online arena that have proved to be able to easily reshape our democracies and daily lives. The programme relies on the principles of human rights, security and the safety of personal data and the responsible use of innovative technologies.
WHAT IS OUR SUPERPOWER?
BIRN’s superpower lies in the power of journalism that is followed with lots of hard work and its dedication to cooperation on national, regional and global level.
