Private sector has responsibility to protect the right to free expression

28 April 2016 (APC for APCNews)

As technology becomes increasingly pervasive in our daily lives, the policies of a broad array of private actors have an impact on freedom of expression in the digital age. APC welcomes the focus of the UN Special Rapporteur on the right to freedom of opinion and expression on the responsibilities of the ICT sector, and the opportunity to contribute to his study. While there has been significant focus on the impact of large, transnational companies, we wish to highlight other private actors whose human rights responsibilities are not as well understood.
