There remains, however, a limited international understanding of the true impact of technology on citizens and their digital twins as data becomes an increasingly powerful economic, political and social force.
TIOF aims to raise awareness about the importance of protecting citizens and their data through the observance of Data-Centric Digital Rights. In collaboration with stakeholders ranging from technologists, civil society, academia, bodies of governance and corporate, it works towards achieving the proclamation and adoption of a Universal Declaration of Digital Rights.
To promote, protect and provide solutions for Data-Centric Digital Rights.
A world where Human Rights and Data-Centric Digital Rights are one and the same.
The IO Foundation delivers its mission through the observance of the following values:
Community: Data-Centric Digital Rights is a global endeavor that requires the active participation of everyone, from policy makers to citizens, businesses and the people who will architect and build our digital societies.
Accountability: We recognize the critical importance of operating under procedures and methodologies that are transparent in order to generate the necessary trust in the organization, our DCDR Principles and the advocacy at large.
Impact: Our initiatives are designed and implemented only to serve the broader advocacy and to help, step by step, generate practical outcomes that make technology better and safer transparently for citizens.
