GPD provides submission to Global Digital Compact zero draft

We welcome the recent publication of the zero draft of the Global Digital Compact, an ongoing UN-led initiative that aims to develop a set of guiding principles for member states on how human rights standards apply in the digital age.

We particularly applaud that the Compact recognises human rights as a cross-cutting principle, underlying each of the Compact’s objectives, commitments and actions.

In our input, we provide our observations on positive aspects of the Compact, as well as recommendations for those aspects which should be strengthened or revised.
