Human Rights

According to the doctrine of human rights, every human being, regardless their social status, is entitled to "equal and inalienable rights" related to their person, and therefore applicable in all circumstances, including in the field of digital networks. The concept of human rights is by definition universal and equal. Through the socio-political consequences of the digital age, such concept finds new room of expression and faces new challenges. We still need to assess whether to make legitimate or illegitimate the limitations of the exercise of fundamental freedoms, for them to be soon clearly and faithfully incorporated into the corpus of human rights. Freedom of expression and opinion, privacy, democracy and participation, civil and political rights and education are the main topics in this group, with the aim of reconciling fundamental rights with the responsabilities of final users and of those dealing with economical matters. This work is done in collaboration with NGOs and international institutions.
