> 10 INTERNET RIGHTS AND PRINCIPLES
> This document defines ten key rights and principles that must form the
> basis of Internet governance. They have been compiled by the Internet Rights
> and Principles Dynamic Coalition (IRP), an open network of individuals and
> organisations working to uphold human rights in the Internet environment.
> The principles are rooted in international human rights standards, and
> derive from the coalition's emerging Charter of Human Rights and Principles
> for the Internet.
> The Internet offers unprecedented opportunities for the realisation of
> human rights, and plays an increasingly important role in our everyday
> lives. It is therefore essential that all actors, both public and private,
> respect and protect human rights on the Internet. Steps must also be taken
> to ensure that the Internet operates and evolves in ways that fulfil human
> rights to the greatest extent possible. To help realise this vision of a
> rights-based Internet environment, the 10 Rights and Principles are:
> 1) Universality and Equality
> All humans are born free and equal in dignity and rights, which must be
> respected, protected and fulfilled in the online environment.
> 2) Rights and Social Justice
> The Internet is a space for the promotion, protection and fulfilment of
> human rights and the advancement of social justice. Everyone has the duty to
> respect the human rights of all others in the online environment.
> 3) Accessibility
> Everyone has an equal right to access and use a secure and open Internet.
> 4) Expression and Association
> Everyone has the right to seek, receive, and impart information freely on
> the Internet without censorship or other interference. Everyone also has the
> right to associate freely through and on the Internet, for social,
> political, cultural or other purposes.
> 5) Privacy and Data Protection
> Everyone has the right to privacy online. This includes freedom from
> surveillance, the right to use encryption, and the right to online
> anonymity. Everyone also has the right to data protection, including control
> over personal data collection, retention, processing, disposal and
> 6) Life, Liberty and Security
> The rights to life, liberty, and security must be respected, protected and
> fulfilled online. These rights must not be infringed upon, or used to
> infringe other rights, in the online environment.
> 7) Diversity
> Cultural and linguistic diversity on the Internet must be promoted, and
> technical and policy innovation should be encouraged to facilitate plurality
> of expression.
> 8) Network Equality
> Everyone shall have universal and open access to the Internet's content,
> free from discriminatory prioritisation, filtering or traffic control on
> commercial, political or other grounds.
> 9) Standards and Regulation
> The Internet's architecture, communication systems, and document and data
> formats shall be based on open standards that ensure complete
> interoperability, inclusion and equal opportunity for all.
> 10) Governance
> Human rights and social justice must form the legal and normative
> foundations upon which the Internet operates and is governed. This shall
> happen in a transparent and multilateral manner, based on principles of
> openness, inclusive participation and accountability.
