Submission by Professor Dan Jerker B. Svantesson to the UNESCO global study on Internet-issues: Question 25 – How do cross-jurisdictional issues operate with regard to freedom of expression and privacy?

Research output: Other contributionSubmission to governmentResearch


Until 30 November 2014, UNESCO is asking for inputs and research around a global questionnaire on Internet-related issues in the four areas of (i) Access to information and knowledge, (ii) Freedom of expression, (iii) Privacy, and (iv) Ethical dimensions of the information society. The questions also explore the intersections between these areas and options for future UNESCO action in these fields. (See attached list).

The findings, on topics which relate to UNESCO’s mandate, will feed into a comprehensive Internetrelated study mandated by UNESCO’s 195 Member States through Resolution 52 of the Organization’s 37th General Conference Resolution in November 2013. The questions and design of the study have been elaborated through a five-month multi-stakeholder consultation process with civil society,
academia, the private sector, the technical community, inter-governmental organizations and UNESCO’s Member States.
