Recognising and Building Communication Rights
Claiming and using communication rights are integral to shaping societies that fully respond to human needs and people everywhere needs to improve their economic, political, social and cultural lives. Attaining communication rights for women is a step towards gender equality. Projects will claim and build communication rights for human development, social inclusion, and participatory citizenship, as well as creating an enabling environment by advancing awareness and recognition of communication rights locally, nationally or internationally.
