ABA ROLI Ukraine and CCL announces the start of a joint project
The American Bar Association Rule of Law Initiative (ABA ROLI) and its Ukrainian partner Center for Civil Liberties undertake a joint “Promoting Internet Freedom in Ukraine” project aimed at strengthening the knowledge and capacity of cross-sector Internet freedom (IF) actors to advocate for laws and policies that promote freedom and online freedom of expression (FOE) in Ukraine.
The American Bar Association Rule of Law Initiative (ABA ROLI) works in countries around the world on issues of promoting justice, economic opportunity, and human dignity through the rule of law.
The Project is focused on the following areas:
– Build expertise among stakeholders on issues of Internet freedom and national security;
– Improve legal knowledge to ensure new laws under development respect human rights principles;
– Enhance the capacity of Ukrainian CSOs, supporting their activities to promote Internet freedom;
– Enhance cross-sector engagement between CSOs, the private sector, and Government stakeholders.
In May 2021 CCL launched the first series of public events which included open round table talks, webinars, cohesion actions to advocate for democratic principles and policies in internet freedom domain.
The project is funded by the U.S. Department of State’s Bureau of Democracy, Human Rights, and Labor (DRL).
