Human Rights Council on Internet rights

https://www.apc.org/en/system/files/L.24 Oral Revisions.pdf

The resolution was adopted by consensus and co-sponsored by 82 States. Building on the 2012 HRC resolution (20/8) which had a focus on freedom of expression, this resolution addresses a broader range or rights, such as the right to education, privacy, and to freedom of peaceful assembly and association, as well as key internet issues like access to information, digital literacy, interoperability, and innovation, and the global and open nature of the internet. It calls on States to facilitate access to the internet, and address security concerns based on the rule of law. The resolution also includes a reference to NetMundial, and calls on States to “consider formulating national internet-related policies through transparent and inclusive processes, with all stakeholders and adopting national internet-related public policies that have the objective of universal access and enjoyment of human rights at their core”.
