From Economic, Social and Cultural Rights and the Internet
Jump to: navigation, search

Welcome to the wiki for APC's research project, Connecting your rights: Economic, cultural and social rights and the internet. This wiki is a collaborative space for the project team.

Discussions on internet rights are often limited to arguments around “internet freedom”. APC believes that advancing internet rights is also a way to advance economic, social and cultural rights (ESCRs). Some of these rights include: the right to education, the right to an adequate standard of living, and the right to health. In this three-year project, APC will explore how, ultimately, internet policy and regulation can help achieve greater social inclusion.

This work is being carried out with the aid of a grant from the International Development Research Centre, Ottawa, Canada.
