Introducción

Un fenómeno creciente en el campo de la gobernanza de internet es el surgimiento de cartas y conjuntos de principios con el propósito de orientar el diseño de políticas e influir sobre el comportamiento de diferentes actores que usan internet. Dos propósitos distintos pero con áreas en común impulsan el fenómeno: articular y promover una determinada visión de internet y ofrecer alternativas a la legislación y regulación ex ante que por lo general se considera ineficiente, poco práctica y/o perjudicial.

The number of reports published on human rights on the internet in the last year alone is staggering. Who has the time to read them all? The good news is you don’t have to. If you take the time to read one report, make it GISWatch 2011.

Introduction

The intersection between the internet and human rights, including freedoms of expression and association, is increasingly important as the internet becomes more universal, and increasingly complex as the internet affects more aspects of society, economy, politics and culture. This report suggests two ways to map this intersection, and raises a number of questions that need to be considered by those concerned with the internet, with rights, and with wider public policy.
