Abstract:

"The Internet's role in enabling so many fundamental human rights reflects its ubiquity as a social tool. It has become a central forum for shopping and commerce, for socialising and dating, for culture and entertainment, for formal and informal education, for political debate and engagement, for religious and spiritual pursuits, for medical consultation and for professional advancement in nearly every field. In short, for many people the Internet has transformed practically every aspect of day-to-day life. ... The aim of this Report is to provide a comprehensive mapping of the main issues arising from an understanding of the Internet as a human right, and to establish parameters within which future debate on human rights issues for the Internet can take place. It does not claim to provide a comprehensive analysis of all of the issues it identifies, or policy solutions to them"--
