UNESCO calls for research proposals: case studies on the role of Internet intermediaries in promoting freedom of expression on Internet

UNESCO launches a call for research proposals in order to identify principles for good practices and processes related to Internet intermediaries (such as Internet service providers, search engines, online media, and social media) that can protect freedom of expression by ensuring that any of limitations of this right are consistent with international standards. This project contributes to promoting online freedom of expression through assembling and analyzing empirical data, encouraging self-regulation and providing practical recommendations to industry, States and policy makers. Interested researchers and organizations are invited to submit their proposals by 13 September 2013.
