Report published by Civil Liberties for Europe on 15/11/2023 – accessible here.

The Liberties Online Civic Space Report, the first report specifically focusing on the state of the online civic space in the European Union (EU), shows that our fundamental rights are not well enough protected in the online sphere and calls on the EU to take urgent action to address the causes of this.

The report offers a comprehensive overview of the most striking developments within the past five years concerning the online civic space in 11 countries across the EU. From online smear campaigns and doxxing to ongoing efforts to rein in Big Tech companies, the report details the myriad ways our online rights continue to suffer.
