The Association for Progressive Communications (APC) and Derechos Digitales welcome the opportunity to submit this Parallel Report ahead of the 66th session of the Pre-Sessional Working Group of the Committee on Economic, Social and Cultural Rights (CESCR).

This submission is centred on cross-cutting issues related to the use of information and communication technologies (ICTs) affecting the exercise of economic, social and cultural rights in the International Covenant for Economic, Social and Cultural Rights (ICESCR), especially those related to the rights to health (Article 12), to work (Article 6) and just and favourable conditions of work (Article 7), to taking part in cultural life (Article 15), and the right to non-discrimination (Article 2.2) as a cross-cutting concern, as the equal enjoyment of all rights can be enabled or hindered by the use of ICTs.
