Digital Human Rights; Fundamental Freedom in Digital Age


Human rights apply online just as they do offline. Digital rights are defined as the realisation of the values in the Constitution of India’s preamble in our digital worlds today. Digital rights must not be considered separate from basic human rights. It encompasses a broad range of principles and protections that are fundamental in ensuring that individuals can navigate the digital world with dignity, privacy, and freedom. The digital age has heralded a new era in human history, fundamentally altering the way we interact, learn, conduct business, and participate in society. This transformation has been driven by the proliferation of digital technologies, internet connectivity, and the growth of online platforms. In this context, the concept of digital human rights becomes increasingly relevant as we seek to safeguard essential freedoms in the digital realm.
