Data-Centric Digital Rights (DCDR) is the advocacy of protecting citizens' Rights by transparently implementing the regulations that should protect them.
As core stakeholders, technologists play a critical role as the NextGen Rights Defenders and need to orient themselves through new design and implementation paradigms focused on protecting citizen's digital twins.
