Human Rights

The majority of telecommunications, internet, and mobile companies do not disclose sufficient information to their users about policies and practices affecting freedom of expression and privacy, according to the 2017 Ranking Digital Rights Corporate Accountability Index. The report, supported by MacArthur through a grant to New America, finds that even the highest performing companies had significant gaps in disclosure on key issues regarding what a user can and cannot say or do when using their services. The report suggests that companies join organizations that require members to uphold principles of freedom of expression and privacy, such as the Telecommunications Industry Dialogue.
