Submission of Inputs for the Global Digital Compact by the Global Digital Justice Forum

April 2023

Global Digital Justice Forum
The members of the Global Digital Justice forum jointly responded to calls for written inputs on the Global Digital Compact process. Anchored in a steadfast pursuit of digital justice, this submission has emerged from a process marked by extensive dialogue, contemplation, and consultation, a journey that has spanned multiple months and engaged various communities in the Global South.

Recognizing the transformative potential of this initiative, the forum engages thoughtfully with the Compact’s objectives, envisioning a just and equitable digital landscape that empowers individuals while safeguarding their rights. Our submission is steadfast to the forum’s core principles which advocate for the democratization of digital technology governance and the advocacy of decentralized digital systems. A central tenet of this vision is the preservation of the Internet as a global commons, facilitating the dissemination of knowledge and empowering individuals across society and the economy. Our approach to the Compact underscores the importance of people-led, ecologically responsible, rights-centered, and gender-equitable technological models that seek to establish a new international order rooted in development sovereignty.

It is important to note that this submission has been meticulously validated through sharing among partners and collaborators affiliated with the Forum’s members. Noteworthy organizations including Asociación Latinoamericana de Educación y Comunicación Popular (ALER), Foro Argentino de Radios Comunitarias (FARCO), Global Initiative for Economic, Social and Cultural Rights (GI-ESCR), Internet Bolivia, Internet Ciudadana, and Pressenza have not only endorsed but also actively supported the content and objectives of this submission.
