About Me: I am working as privacy and Internet governance researcher in the Network for EuRopean Digital Youth (NERDY) and a guest lecturer and trainer in NO LABEL PROJECT non-profit organizations. I am doing policy research in the field of European Internet Governance and Internet privacy, with a focus on models of youth participation and inclusion into political processes. My two main research areas are: 1) perspective of privacy experts and activists on threats to privacy; 2) models and problems of youth participation and inclusion into political processes of Internet Governance. Moreover, I am in charge of of preparing and delivering content for online and offline trainings and workshops and facilitation of youth events focused on raising awareness on the use of the Internet, digital rights and new social media.

I am also a PhD candidate at Humboldt Universität zu Berlin researching digital data privacy protection, privacy activism and advocacy. My research interest is focused on the perspective of privacy experts and activists on threats to privacy.

Annnyanka,

I'm excited to read about your work with NERDY and NO LABEL PROJECT! I wonder if you would be willing to compose a piece about digital issues for our Women Weave the Web Campaign? I'd love to hear your thoughts about how technology affects your life and the lives of women around you. Obviously, your doctoral research is spot on for our campaign! We would love to add your voice, especially since you'd be the first to write from Germany. We'd love to add your perspective to the mix. You can find out more information about the campaign here, http://worldpulse.com/about/blog/announcing-the-digital-literacy-phase-o.... It would be fabulous to have your voice join others as we think through issues around digital literacy in all its complexity.

By participating, you will be joining a global community of women speaking out on the importance of digital inclusion and empowerment for women. Your voice will be delivered to powerful decision makers such as government officials, leaders in the technology industry, and policy makers at international organizations. In addition to influencing global agendas, your submission to the campaign will open the door to incredible opportunities such as:
