By Lea Kaspar and Richard Wingfield

What are the key challenges facing civil society organisations when it comes to digital policy? What are the big issues on the international agenda—and why are they there? How should groups decide which of the dozens of forums and processes are worth engaging in? And how can funders best support groups in an ever-evolving landscape? These are some of the core questions tackled in a major new report by GPD, Digital Rights at a Crossroads: Recommendations for Advancing Human Rights and Social Justice in the Post-2020 Period.

The report, co-authored by GPD’s Executive Director, Lea Kaspar and Head of Legal, Richard Wingfield, draws on original research—including a survey of 36 civil society organisations, 18 in-depth interviews, and two focus groups—to identify a range of core trends and challenges facing civil society engaging in digital policy in the post-2020 period.
