European Union, Global Internet Freedom Fund

Overview Edit

The fund aims:

  • to foster recognition that new communication technologies are used to advance tolerance and freedom of expression but can also be instrumental in repression or violence. To highlight that internet freedom is a major force in international affairs and should become an integral and mainstreamed part of the EU's foreign and security, trade and other relevant policy areas;
  • to fund successful independent initiatives which develop circumvention technologies and software to distribute to human rights defenders with the goal of protecting themselves;
  • to fund training for human rights defenders about technologies and human rights;
  • to organize regular and systematic contacts between EU politicians, the business community and civil society members to share knowledge and discuss policy plans related to technologies and human rights.
