#Human Rights, #Information and Communications Technology


The human rights landscape for the information and communications technology (ICT) sector can be daunting. ICT companies face complex and nuanced challenges related to freedom of expression, privacy, and security, and often have millions of users in very different geographic, political, and socioeconomic settings.

The Ranking Digital Rights project is completing a methodology to rank the world’s major ICT companies on their policies and practices related to freedom of expression and privacy. This system will provide guidance to companies on how to improve through concrete, measurable steps. In addition, the annual ranking aims to inform the decisions of investors and consumers, the advocacy strategies of civil society groups, and the priorities of policymakers and legislators around the world.

The project is currently in its stakeholder consultative phase and is seeking input from BSR member companies on its current approach and methodology.

Speakers

  • Rebecca MacKinnon, Director, Ranking Digital Rights
  • Faris Natour, Former Managing Director, Advisory Services, BSR
  • Aditi Mohapatra, Director, Women’s Empowerment, BSR
