10 August 2021

This brief sets out the rationale for exploring a framework for greater transparency of internet companies as part of UNESCOs ongoing multi-stakeholder work to promote and protect human rights in the digital ecosystem.

The paper reviews existing transparency mechanisms of a selection of companies as well as some of the initiatives that seek to promote greater transparency. Looking at the advantages and limitations of current approaches, it discusses the value of a unifying initiative to elaborate the meaning of transparency for key digital actors.
