Reporting and beyond: why company and government transparency is essential for human rights online.

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Significant progress has been made on increasing transparency around the interaction between companies and governments with regard to access to user information, content restriction and network shutdown.

This interactive session will discuss why transparency in this regard is important to the protection and promotion of freedom of expression and privacy online. We will address what we know and don’t know from companies and governments, and how both parties can best provide information to the public. What makes an effective transparency report, from companies and from governments? What other tools and strategies can both parties use to educate individuals about issues that implicate their rights?

In a multistakeholder setting, and drawing upon the expertise of the session participants, the session will look at existing initiatives (including the Hong Kong Transparency Report, the Taiwan Internet Transparency Report and the Korea Internet Transparency Report), best practices and emerging issues (including extremist content online) with regards to government transparency.

Additionally, the session will explore how we can increase collaboration to further these practices around the world.
