Global Network Initiative, Principles on Freedom of Expression and Privacy (full-text).

Overview Edit

The Principles state the members' overarching commitment to collaborate in the advancement of user rights to freedom of expression and privacy. The Principles provide high-level guidance to the ICT industry on how to respect, protect, and advance user rights to freedom of expression and privacy, including when faced with government demands for censorship and disclosure of users' personal information.

Participating companies are committed to conducting "human rights risk assessments" that guide policy decisions. The Principles are intended to be applied globally and are based on internationally recognized laws and standards for human rights.[1]

References Edit

  1. The Principles are based on laws and standards such as the Universal Declaration of Human Rights (UDHR), the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights (ICCPR), and the International Covenant on Economic, Social, and Cultural Rights.
