Internet rights are human rights

The Internet rights are human rights is a series of training modules concerned with the relationship between human rights, ICTs and the internet. These modules are intended to help those who work on human rights and/or ICTs, and others with an interest in the issues, to understand ways in which the internet is affecting the enjoyment and protection of rights – now and in the future – and explore how these affect their work.

This module has been commissioned by the Association for Progressive Communications (APC) and conducted with support from the Swedish International Development Cooperation Agency (Sida).

The right to privacy

 
Developed by: Carly Nyst.

Overview: This module looks at the right to privacy in the context of the internet and ICTs. It begins by analysing the right to privacy in international and national legal frameworks, and summarises some of the primary challenges to the protection and promotion of privacy in different cultures and contexts. It then goes on to consider the impact of the internet and ICTs on privacy, taking an in-depth look into questions of implementation and enforcement with regards to access to and use of personal information by governments, corporate entities and third parties. It focuses on the changing nature of the right to privacy and the difficult balance that must be struck between promoting privacy and ensuring the enjoyment of other human rights.
