Telco Industry Dialogue to collaborate with GNI on freedom of expression, privacy rights

Access (accessnow.org) welcomes the announcement of a new collaboration between the Telecommunications Industry Dialogue on Freedom of Expression and Privacy, and the Global Network Initiative. Beginning with a two-year trial, this collaboration holds the potential for meaningful engagement that yields more rights-respecting policies and actions in the telecoms sector...Access expresses concern, however, that three major companies, AT&T, BT and Tele2, which had been members of the Industry Dialogue, are not part of today’s announcement, and will be approaching the companies individually with regard to their next steps.
