Ethics

The information society should be subject to universally held values, promote the common good and prevent abusive uses of ICTs. It takes steps to promote respect for peace and to uphold the fundamental values of freedom, equality, solidarity, tolerance, shared responsibility and respect for nature. All stakeholders should increase their awareness of the ethical dimension of their use of ICTs and all actors in the information society should promote the common good, protect privacy and personal data and take appropriate actions and preventive measures, as determined by law, against abusive uses of ICTs such as illegal and other acts motivated by racism, racial discrimination, xenophobia and related intolerance, hatred, violence, all forms of child abuse, including pedophilia and child pornography, and trafficking in, and exploitation of, human beings. Lastly, this category focuses on inviting relevant stakeholders, especially academia, to continue research on the ethical dimensions of ICTs.
