WSIS Forum 2023: High-Level Policy Session 7

March 15 @ 09:00 CET

Ethical Dimensions of Information and Knowledge Societies

The Information Society should respect peace and uphold the fundamental values of freedom, equality, solidarity, tolerance, shared responsibility, and respect for nature.
We acknowledge the importance of ethics for the Information Society, which should foster justice, and the dignity and worth of the human person. The widest possible protection should be accorded to the family and to enable it to play its crucial role in society.
The use of ICTs and content creation should respect human rights and fundamental freedoms of others,
including personal privacy, and the right to freedom of thought, conscience, and religion in conformity with relevant international instruments.
All actors in the Information Society should take appropriate actions and preventive measures, as determined by law, against abusive uses of ICTs, such as illegal and other acts motivated by racism, racial discrimination, xenophobia, and related intolerance, hatred, violence, all forms of child abuse, including paedophilia and child pornography, and trafficking in, and exploitation of, human beings.
