Recommendations for Chile on human rights in digital environments

Author: 
Derechos Digitales and Association for Progressive Communications (APC)

The recommendations presented here are addressed to the Chilean state and based on the submissions made by Derechos Digitales, the Association for Progressive Communications (APC), Women’s Link Worldwide and Corporación Miles Chile for the fourth cycle of the UN Human Rights Council's Universal Period Review (UPR) of Chile.

In the previous cycle, for the first time, Chile received recommendations relating to the exercise of rights in digital environments. Despite accepting them, to date the Chilean state has not taken sufficient actions to guarantee the full exercise of different rights, such as freedom of speech online and offline, the right to privacy and protection of data, and women’s right to a life free of violence.

The full report by Derechos Digitales and APC on human rights in the digital environment in Chile is available (in Spanish) at this link. The joint UPR submission by Derechos Digitales, Women’s Link Worldwide and Corporación Miles Chile is available (in Spanish) at this link.
