IRPC Charter

The Internet Rights and Principles Dynamic Coalition is an open network of individuals and organisations based at the UN Internet Governance Forum (IGF) committed to making human rights and principles work for the online environment. Since the 2009 IGF in  Sharm El Sheikh we have been working to outline how human rights standards should be interpreted to apply to the Internet environment, and the internet policy principles which must be upheld in order to create an environment which supports human rights to the maximum extent possible.

The Charter of Human Rights and Principles for the Internet – currently translated into 10 languages was launched in 2011 and connects existing human rights law and norms with rights-based aspirations for the online environment.

The IRPC Charter’s 21 articles have been distilled into 10 broad principles and are available in 26 languages.
