Communication published by the European Commission on 26 January 2022, setting out a Declaration on European Digital Rights and Principles.
In March 2021, the European Commission laid out its vision for the European Union's digital transformation by 2030. In September 2021, a governance framework was introduced to ensure that the digital targets were achieved. The draft declaration on digital rights and principles aims to give everyone a clear reference point about the kind of digital transformation Europe promotes and defends.
The proposed Declaration covers key rights and principles for the digital transformation, such as placing people and their rights at its centre, supporting solidarity and inclusion, ensuring the freedom of choice online, fostering participation in the digital public space, increasing safety, security and empowerment of individuals, and promoting the sustainability of the digital future. The Declaration is rooted in EU law.
The draft Declaration was published by the Commission on 26 January 2022, alongside a Communication concerning the implementation of this Declaration.
