ICT4HR: Information and Communication Technologies for Human Rights

The linkage between information and communication technologies (ICT) and human rights is a subject that has not received a lot of attention until recently. A new report, ICT for Human Rights, is an effort to contribute to the studies in this field by providing new knowledge and experience of the nexus between protection and promotion of human rights, and the use of ICT.

The study was written by Molly Land, Patrick Meier, Emily Jacobi and I. While most of the work of the project highlighted in this report focuses on country activities in the intersection of governance and human rights, the report opens the space for learning at a general and cross-cutting level, including reports from a number of country case studies in Eastern Africa, in Central America, and globally.
