The Report of the Special Rapporteur on Freedom of Expression of the Inter-American Commission on Human Rights tackles the interplay between the Internet and the freedom of expression. It first explores the guiding principles of the freedom of expression and then touches upon the questions of net neutrality and access to the Internet which are essential to safeguard the freedom of expression online. The document also touches upon a number of negative developments including content filtering and blocking as well as cybersecurity and privacy-related issues.
