GNI has organized discussions on the rise in network and communications disruptions and shutdowns, shifting trends in country legal frameworks affecting companies’ abilities to respect rights in their operations, and a spotlight on the GNI demonstrating our multi-stakeholder approaches to advancing privacy and freedom of expression in the ICT sector.
"When companies work together with stakeholders to implement human rights commitments, it makes a difference. GNI and TID companies performed better than all other companies evaluated in the Index on indicators measuring the extent to which companies have institutionalized their corporate-level commitments to freedom of expression and privacy,” said Ranking Digital Rights Director Rebecca MacKinnon.
The primary purpose of the Global Network Initiative's Board of Directors is to further the Principles and to oversee the organization to fulfill the vision of the GNI.
The Board is composed of eight representatives from companies, four from non-governmental organizations, two from the academic community, two from the investor community, and an Independent Chair. Each Board member may also designate an alternate Board member from within its organization or constituency.
