GISWatch 2011 offers timely commentary on the future of the internet as an open and shared platform that everyone has the right to access.

There is genuine need for the new spaces opened by this project , which at the same time sharing different country experiences building plat form for solidarity and supporting different communities to share their challenges and to show the state violations of its international HR obligation. The report development for me is a learning process and opportunity to meet other activists and defenders from different country sharing the same values and principles
The GISWatch Project provides very useful insights into today's information society through the lens of different country experiences. A reader is allowed to properly gauge the ongoing interaction between technology and human rights, and its impact on people's day-to-day lives.
