The Freedom of Expression Project

Submitted by hive on

The Freedom of Expression Project is a global collaboration to shape the networked communications environment as it continues to develop. It aims to build a communications environment that:

  • respects and promotes human rights
  • gives all people and communities opportunities fully to realise their human potential.

Recently, they write to say that:

"We’ve been developing policy principles to shape communications environments that support human rights, working collaboratively with civil society organizations in the global south.

We've also been working to form a solid base for further research and advocacy, with the principles framework allowing for international collaboration and cohesion, whilst at the same time permitting specific work to be done in different regions according to local needs."

Check out their public interest principles for the networked communications environment and their latest briefing note, for more information.
