The statement seeks their active role in a new global Internet
governance dispensation, which is democratic, and promotes human rights,
equity and social justice for all.
The annex to the statement carries a set of concrete recommendations on
how BRICS countries should take a lead in developing open source basic
operating systems, software and applications that should then be made
available to all as public utilities. To do so is fundamental to
reclaiming the Internet as a global commons , which serves as a equal
playing field for all to use it for their purposes and benefits. It is
also necessary to regain the trust in the Internet and ensure
communication which is safe and fully protects people's privacy.
We are happy to receive feedback on this.
