The following is a list of consultations that are of particular importance to digital rights in 2015. We will regularly update this blog post with deadlines, EDRi’s responses and other information that might help you respond.

The European institutions and international policy-making bodies frequently organise consultations, which are open not only to industry but also to civil society and individuals. These are valuable opportunities to shape policy in a positive way, from the outset rather than needing to take to the streets when the wrong policy is developed based on bad analysis.
