Human Rights and the Internet: State of the Art

I'll be in Sweden next week at the Stockholm Internet Forum. The programme is exciting with panels dedicated to social media, online threats to human rights, and responsible business practices. 
On 19 April, I'm organizing a side event with an exciting panel posted below. I'm collecting questions that I'll ask the panelists to reflect on, so if you have any, please let me know.

Human Rights and the Internet: State of the Art

  • 19 April, 13.30–15.00
  • Organized by: Internet & Society Co:llaboratory, Internet Rights & Principles Coalition and Institute of International Law and International Relations, University of Graz, Austria.
Against the background of the Internet principle hype of 2011, the panel will discuss the state of the art of research on human rights and the Internet with special reference to the 10 Internet Rights and Principles developed by the Internet Rights & Principles Coalition and the 10 main theses on the role of human rights online that were established by a three-months collaborative endeavour of 30 experts in the framework of the 5th initiative of the Internet & Society Co:llaboratory. The 10 Theses can guide the operationalization of the rights and principles and can provide important signposts for the development of a global commitment to human rights.
