Comparative Content Analysis Report Published

GDHRNet report about the comparative content analysis of instruments adopted by international and European organizations/countries regarding human rights protection online has just been published on this website.

The report covers a diverse range of topics with an overarching discourse on the impact of technology on human rights and efforts to address the many emerging issues in this field. The underlying idea is that technology is often viewed as a double-edged sword which can both facilitate and hinder the advancement of human rights. The obvious benefits of technology in strengthening our democratic societies are followed by questions about safety and privacy issues, discrimination and the protection of those in situation of vulnerability, as well as the general discourse about the erosion of traditional and existing human rights safeguards.
