r-TLP focuses on the intersection of technology, law, policy and society.

Our inspiration lies particularly in giving a platform to the marginalized genders in this domain, making a publication a lot more accessible to people that want to write, but don’t get a platform and/or enough credit. We’re positively biased towards the interests of under-represented genders within publishing. Join us in our initiative and connect with us.

The fear of being exposed due to online platforms' usage damages the ability of marginalised genders to be seen, heard, and hinders their ability to participate as social actors. Intermediary Rules have far-reaching consequences on online privacy, freedom of speech and expression, and access to information, whose adverse effects are multiplied manifold when concerning marginalised communities.
