DW Akademie 2016 (†874)"Controversial EU digital rights charter is food for thought" (DW Akademie, 16 December 2016).
- digital rights : Digital technologies affect how billions of us live, learn, work and communicate. But we pay a high price for the advantages of living in a connected world. As governments monitor private communications and private companies collect and sell our digital data, our fundamental human right to privacy is being eroded. And with the right to privacy underpinning key rights such as freedom of expression and freedom of association, other human rights are also under threat. Dissatisfied with protections for digital rights in Europe, a group of German experts spent 14 months drafting a "Charter of Digital Fundamental Rights of the European Union". (†2619)
