The collection of policy approaches is a resource that supports Consumer International’s work to ‘build a digital world consumers can trust’. It was launched at the G20 Summit in Berlin to mark World Consumer Rights Day 2017, an annual event marked by over 120 consumer organisations in 85 countries.
Policies for digital advocacy
A holistic view of digital rights policy around the world
We collaborated with Consumers International's digital team to collect over 60 policy approaches that support consumer protection. We looked to emerging markets as well as Europe and North America to find policy approaches to increasing access to broadband, education initiatives and data portability schemes. Using our detailed understanding of the practical implications of technology policy, we were able to analyse the advantages and risks of each approach.
