Associate Tenant Nani Jansen Reventlow awarded the Bits of Freedom: Felipe Rodriguez Award

Doughty Street Chambers is delighted to announce that Nani Jansen Reventlow, our brilliant Associate Tenant, has been awarded the Bits of Freedom: Felipe Rodriguez Award, named after a champion of the right to privacy. Nani is the founding director of the Digital Freedom Fund and founder of Systemic Justice, a new NGO that will work on racial, social and economic justice.

Bits of Freedom is the digital civil rights movement in the Netherlands. They are committed to a just and free society with focus on two essential fundamental rights that are under pressure due to digitization: freedom of communication and privacy. Every year they honour someone who has done something remarkable for our privacy with this positive award.

Jelle Klaas, Project Coordinator for the Public Interest Litigation Project (PILP), says:

“With DFF, Nani has brought together the digital human rights movement in Europe and has been able to drive more and better cooperation in that field.”

Claire Fernandez, Executive Director of European Digital Rights (EDRi), says:

“Nani is both a thinker and a doer and the combination of those qualities makes her such a driving force and leader for change.”
