Internet Universality Indicators: What are they? How are they going to be used? Will they be able to influence policy?
UNESCO’s project to define Internet Universality Indicators aims to build a framework of indicators that can be used to assess levels of achievement, in individual countries, of the four fundamental "ROAM" principles included in the Internet Universality concept:
R – that the internet is based on human Rights
O – that it is Open
A – that it should be Accessible to all
M – that it is nurtured by Multistakeholder participation
The indicators will be developed through an extensive programme of desk research and consultation, where as much input as possible is needed.
