The Digital Rights Governance Framework focuses on the local safeguarding of human rights in the digital context of city governments. Specifically, it outlines how cities can uphold a human rights-based approach with regards to the digitalisation of their services and to some extent the digitalisation of the city.


The document (available as a PDF here) gathers foundations, structures and tools that cities can put in place and which can be customised according to local needs. It has been co-created by city and organisations’ experts’, which provided evidence-based experiences out of practice, and can be used as a self-assessment tool and maturity model for city-government locally.


The Framework is a living document and will continue to be updated with inputs from experts, local experiences and the results of the Digital Rights Governance Project.
