Exploring the implications of advances in communication technology for communication rights and the political, economic, and cultural challenges at global, national, and local levels.

Why is it important?

In a world increasingly dependent on digital communication technologies and platforms, democratic governance and freedom of expression are at risk without independent, transparent and accountable multistakeholder oversight.


The media and technologies of communication are a global commons: they should be accessible to and affordable by everyone. Civil society needs to monitor and challenge the policies and actions of those who own and control communication infrastructures if genuine social progress is to be achieved.
