CircleID Events – IIITF Community Forum
As if our digital lives don’t matter in cyberspace, digital technologies are routinely applied without regard to our basic human rights, resulting in multiple forms of digital exploitative constraints. To prevent them, we must define and implement the ethical norms and standards that govern our living together online as digital citizens with rights and responsibilities.
As citizens, our rights are protected by the state in which we reside. States base their authorities and capacities on the protection of their sovereignty over their territory. By design, cyberspace and the Internet ecosystem are global and extend beyond national borders. Platforms and infrastructures controlled by the private sector are the equivalent of territory in cyberspace. This raises the fundamental question of how rights are protected and responsibilities exercised in the cyberspace of the global internet ecosystem.
This IGF pre-event explores how we can focus on issues such as:
- What are the fundamental principles that define and protect the rights and responsibilities of digital citizenship?
- Do existing internet governance models take digital rights sufficiently into account?
- Are there alternatives to economic models based on digital exploitation and servitude?
Analyzing and understanding a discussion of these issues will help strengthen the roles of people, society, government and business in securing digital integrity and trust in our digital future.
