Description

Short description Setting up an interregional task force which promotes the content of the Charter of Internet Rights, spreads the digital culture and identifies tools to analyze the level of dissemination and enjoyment of digital rights by citizens. General objective Increase citizens’ awareness of digital rights through information and awareness-raising actions regarding existing regulatory and legislation tools; support administrations in removing obstacles which hinder or slow down the full implementation of digital rights; look at case studies and good practices which help implement the principles of the Charter of Internet Rights identifying counterparts in the public sector dealing with these issues. In order to be more in line with the local context and its specificities, initiatives carried out with the support of regional companies will involve central and local administrations and will include exchanges and debates with local associations and communities. Current situation The right to access the internet, to use online public services, to know and learn through the web, the right to web neutrality, personal data protection, information self-determination, anonymity, oblivion, security, inviolability of personal IT spaces and systems. These are just a few of the issues included in existing legislation and in the “Declaration of Internet Rights” approved by the Chamber of Deputies in 2015. Nowadays, there is little awareness of such rights, both among citizens and public administrations; this little awareness is also due to the absence or lack of information, awareness-raising, study and monitoring initiatives by the entities which are supposed to guarantee those rights, first of all institutions. Public administration should therefore consider the connection between the enjoyment of digital rights and the exercise of democracy, equity and freedom, and take action to make sure that all citizens can enjoy them. Expected results Increased awareness of digital rights; definition of specific areas of analysis and development of a set of indicators to monitor digital rights with a view to setting up the core of a future Interregional Observatory.
