This report looks at freedom of expression and religion practices online in Bangladesh, India, Malaysia and Pakistan. Why freedom of expression and religion online and not hate speech online?
This paper was developed by APC in response to the call for submissions on the role of national human rights institutions in Southeast Asia in protecting human rights by the Asia Centre. It addresses the ways ICTs and the internet create new spaces where NHRIs can improve the way they function.
What can national human rights institutions (NHRIs) do to uphold and promote internet rights? We extend an invitation to NHRIs to be part of a worldwide movement that seeks to respect, protect and promote human rights in the digital age.
