Dialogue on Digital Responsibility


Translating the Internet Commission’s accountability model into action with Digital Global Goals.

Policymakers, businesses and citizens are scrambling to understand the impact and challenges of digitalisation. Whilst technology can benefit people as individuals, its impact is not universally positive.

The Internet Commission’s accountability model for digital organisations maps the top issues that digital organisations must attend to.

This multi-stakeholder, evidence-based dialogue is working towards guiding principles on digital responsibility that are aligned to the UN Global Goals.

The time is ripe for digital technology companies – both the platforms that create services and the networks that deliver those services – to seek an alliance with government to develop a 21st century approach to public accountability in the digital marketplace
