We rely on dozens of companies – such as Facebook, Google and AT&T – for the products and services that power our digital lives. But how committed are these companies to respecting our digital rights like privacy and freedom of expression?

In early November, New America’s Ranking Digital Rights project launched its inaugural Corporate Accountability Index with a ranking of 16 of the world’s most powerful Internet and telecommunications companies on their commitments and disclosed practices affecting users’ freedom of expression and privacy. 

Which companies are doing better than others? What concrete steps can companies take to improve?

Come hear director Rebecca MacKinnon explain the most important and surprising findings from the Index.

This talk is part of the Centre of Governance and Human Rights Events series.
