Dear IRPC community,

We hope this email finds you well. Below we present recent IRPC updates and opportunities. 

Recent IRPC Activities: 
   - On June 27, 2022, IRPC Steering Committee (SC) participated in Dynamic Coalition Coordination Group meeting #63.
   - Between 28-30 June, the IRPC participated in the Digital Constitutionalism Network Conference 2022 at the Center for Advanced Internet Studies (CAIS) in Bochum, Germany. Student participants presented a Wikipedia entry they created about the Charter and other human rights documents. Likewise in the center of attention were the African Declaration of Internet Rights and Principles, the Feminst Principles of the Internet and the Contract for the Web (among others). A database of more than 200 of these so-called "Internet bills of rights" documents has also been updated for the conference.
   - On June 30, 2022, IRPC SC held a session entitled “Human rights in the digital age: The Human Rights Charter'' at the third annual Ghana School on Internet Governance (GhanaSIG). The fellows learnt the history of the human rights documents, starting from the Universal Declaration on Human Rights (UDHR) in 1948 and how most countries have enshrined these rights in their national constitutions to safeguard them. They were introduced to IRPC’s work  and the Human Rights Charter. The fellows' questions focused on internet disruptions by governments and how limiting access online affects an array of rights such as freedom of expression, association etc. 
   - On 6-8 July 2022, IRPC SC participated in the IGF MAG meeting.
