What should we tell the United Nations?
One of our policy fellows has been chosen to speak at the United Nations on the future of the internet. It’s a rare opportunity for ordinary internet users to speak out about human rights in a global forum—and what happens there can shape global policy for years to come.
Tell us what you think! Share your voice at the U.N. by answering these questions:
What do you think is the biggest threat to an open and secure internet in the next ten years?
Government surveillance and pressure on companies to hand over data, restrict content, and shut down or throttle networks
Tech and telecom companies that are not transparent or accountable in their practices impacting access to information, privacy and free expression
The digital divide and discriminatory business models that give people limited or preferential access to certain applications, services, or content online
Infrastructure policy that favors the powerful and incumbents over innovation, equity, and openness
Online abuse, including retaliation, harassment, or security threats targeting vulnerable groups and individuals, such as journalists, women, activists, minorities, human rights defenders, and civil society
What do you think are the best opportunities to protect human rights and spur development through the internet in the next ten years?
Protecting Net Neutrality and discouraging discriminatory business models
Reaching global agreements and reforming laws to respect privacy across borders and enhance digital security
Ensuring that the U.N. development agenda focuses more on digital rights
Ensuring that there are clearer guidelines for regulating content, and that people have a remedy for abuse
Looking at the big picture, what changes would you like to see in internet laws or policy that affect your rights by the year 2025?
