Challenges and opportunities for freedom of expression in the networked environment

Mapping existing agreements and principles

The Freedom of Expression Project is currently working with its international partners to develop a set of rights-based public interest principles to guide policy making in the networked communications environment. A number of similar initiatives led by other groups have already been completed or are ongoing. This paper by Kate Wilkinson maps these initiatives according to the mechansisms they use to implement and enforce standards and the scope of the issues they address.

This paper will help the Freedom of Expression Project to bring together and build on important work that is being done at the intersection between rights and communications. This mapping effort is a work in progress. We welcome suggestions to include initiatives that we have missed, and would like to hear about your experiences of efforts to set public interest standards for information and communication policy.
