"A process whereby a private party, and possibly future defendant, decides arbitrarily whether content should be removed or blocked can lead to interference with the right to
freedom of expression, as delineated in art. 10 of the European  Convention of Human Rights29 and art. 11 of the Charter of  Fundamental Rights of the European Union. [...] The current mechanism also appears to be at odds with the principles of proportionality and due process."

Iptegrity in brief is the website of Dr Monica Horten. I’ve been analysing analysing digital policy since 2008. Way back then, I identified how issues around rights can influence Internet policy, and that has been a thread throughout all of my research. I hold a PhD in EU Communications Policy from the University of Westminster (2010), and a Post-graduate diploma in marketing.   I’ve served as an independent expert on the Council of Europe  Committee on Internet Freedoms, and was involved in a capacity building project in Moldova, Georgia, and Ukraine. I am currently (from June 2022)  Policy Manager - Freedom of Expression, with the Open Rights Group.
