Human Rights and the Internet - New Infographic and Research

The Association for Progressive Communications' campaign
Connect Your Rights, focused on human rights and the internet. The
campaign is still active until the end of 2012, especially around the
Internet Governance Forum and the UN's Universal Periodic Review of
human rights records of several countries. The campaign website is at
http://rights.apc.org

Many of you have tried to measure the impact of the internet on human
rights. Human rights play out differently on the streets than on the
internet. This has been true for years, but today, not only are
‘internet rights’ being promoted — they are also being violated at an
astounding speed. Researcher David Souter has investigated the
internet’s impacts on human rights. Check out our infographic
<http://www.apc.org/en/irhr/internet-human-rights> and his comprehensive
research
<http://www.apc.org/en/pubs/human-rights-and-internet-review-perceptions-human>.

We are always interested in your comments, especially on our
infographic. Please feel free to circulate our infographic and research.
