Through the prism of online platforms, this presentation will examine challenges related to human rights protection in the online domain. This will include questions such as: what does human rights law (and soft law) say about private actors and their human rights responsibilities?; how have major internet companies taken up human rights in their discourse and practices?; what are some of the dynamics that work for or against a stronger human rights protection online?; and are the frameworks that currently govern the activities of these online platforms sufficient to provide the standards and mechanisms needed to protect and respect human rights online?
