Business & Human Rights Resource Centre

[PDF] Information Technology: The Power and Responsibility of Business

Below we highlight key cases and lessons from our work. We draw from situations that we and other human rights organizations have worked on in six areas: • Combating censorship • Curbing surveillance and repression • Protecting privacy • Broadening access • Engaging the supply chain • Respecting children’s rights Navigating the human rights dimensions of ICT is fraught with challenges, for civil society groups and for companies alike. We fully recognize that, and hope that this briefing provides some clarity on the subject as well as pointers to pitfalls and opportunities. The briefing wraps up with recommendations for companies and for governments.
