Freedom on the Internet public event took place in Shtip
The Internet brings plenty of changes, and one of the most significant is that it allows spreading the process of public informing among great deal of stakeholders, not just journalists who do so but in a form which limits freedom of expression to some extent. Today, everyone who uses a mobile phone, social network can be inform and can also report without taking the journalism standards into account. On the other hand, the responsibility for complying with journalism standards and human rights, among which is the right of privacy, will become even greater after the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) has become effective. These were the discussed topics during the fourth Freedom on the Internet public event, organized by Metamorphosis Foundation in cooperation with the Goce Delchev University Faculty of Law in Shtip on 16 May 2018. The event was dedicated to presenting the human rights protection related preliminary reports from the Freedom on the Internet project funded by the American Bar Association – Rule of Law Initiative (ABA ROLI), as well as presenting the results from the measured openness of institutions from the ACTION SEE – Accountability, Technology and Institutional Openness Network in SEE project, supported by the EU.
