While the digital age offers unique opportunities to strengthen human rights implementation and monitoring, it also poses unique challenges in ensuring that states and businesses respect and protect our rights in the digital space. We aim to contribute to current discussions, policy processes and standard-setting in Geneva and beyond by providing a space for the exchange of ideas to draw connections, ensure complementarity and avoid duplication.
