The mission of the Institute for Technology & Society (ITS) is to ensure that Brazil and the Global South respond creatively and appropriately to the opportunities provided by technology in the digital age, and that the potential benefits are broadly shared across society.

Through its own research and in partnership with other institutions, ITS Rio analyzes the legal, social, economic, and cultural dimensions of technology and advocates for public policies and private practices that protect privacy, freedom of expression, and access to knowledge. The Institute also offers innovative methods of education, training, and opportunities for individuals and institutions, enabling them to understand the promises and challenges of new technologies.
