Institute for Technology and Society (Rio de Janeiro) & Parliament of Italy - Internet Bill of Rights: enforcement and impact

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Over the decades, the Internet has gained increasing importance in themes of local, national and global governance. In order to foster an inclusive and human-rights oriented regulation of the Internet, several initiatives around the concept of a Internet Bill of Rights have been developed both nationally and internationally. Brazil followed a hard law approach and adopted its own Internet Bill of Rights in 2014 as a federal law. In Italy, a study commission was established by the President of Italy's Chamber of Deputies and a Declaration of Internet Rights was adopted in 2015 after an online consultation. In addition to domestic initiatives, international charters have been developed (i.e. Web Foundation and Internet Rights and Principles dynamics coalition).

The aim of workshop is to join forces to map the form, scope and enforcement of the first initiatives to create laws, declarations and charters that fit in the concept of Internet Bill of Rights. Once launched, what are the next steps for such initiatives? What can other countries learn from such experiences? Once in force, how different stakeholders have reacted to the final text? Decisions by governmental authorities have been affected by the adoption of an Internet Bill of Rights? Can a judge directly enforce its terms?
