Event description
Internet Freedom and Human Rights. European Policy Perspectives

About this Event

Internet freedom is considered as Human Right by some and as such in need for constitutional protection. Others consider freedom of speech as sufficient framework for internet freedom. The Council of Europe has released a Recommendation that discusses various forms of challenges to Human Rights in the internet realm, from personal data protection to an enabling environment for internet freedom. In this seminar this European perspective on internet regulation as a consequence of regarding internet freedom as a Human Right will be discussed.
