Digital rights and principles feature at Digital Assembly

FRA’s Director took part in a Digital Assembly 2023 side-session on the Declaration on Digital Rights and Principles on 16 June in Stockholm.

He spoke about grounding digital rights in the binding obligations of the EU’s Charter of Fundamental Rights.

He outlined current challenges in the continuous digitalisation of our societies, and called for appropriate resourcing of any oversight mechanisms, with meaningful engagement by civil society.

He also outlined various projects being carried out by FRA in the areas of digitalisation and AI, and highlighted lessons learned from them.
