The IACHR published its report on the 153th Period of Sessions in which it mentions the first regional audience on HumanRights and the Internet. The following groups participated in the meeting, which took place on October 28th: the Center for Freedom of Expression and Access to Information and the Association for Civil Rights (Argentina); Karisma Foundation (Colombia); Digital Rights (Chile); the Association for Communications Progress (international organization); and the Center for Technology and Society of the Getulio Vargas Foundation (Brazil).

In the report, the IACHR highlights the different concepts presented by presenters during the audience: privacy and surveillance; access to knowledge by way of the Internet and copyright; discrimination in digital environments; and also the opportunities, challenges and threats related to freedom of expression on the Internet.

"The petitioners signaled that the Internet offers enormous opportunities for the exercise of the right to freedom of expression online, but also presents challenges and risks for the validity of the principles developed by the Inter-American system," asserts the Commission.
