We are an association of civil and human rights organisations from across Europe. We defend rights and freedoms in the digital environment.
Information technology has a revolutionary impact on our society. It has boosted freedom of communication and democracy but has also led to new approaches to surveillance and is increasingly used to impose restrictions on fundamental rights. Whenever citizens’ rights and freedoms in the online environment are endangered by the actions of political bodies or private organisations, we ensure that they are respected.
EDRi’s key priorities for the next years are privacy, surveillance, net neutrality and copyright reform.
EDRi is an international non-profit association (AISBL) under Belgium law granted by decree Nr7/CDLF/14.853/S of 12 February 2003 and registered in Brussels (n° BE0866.466.752). EDRi is registered in the EU Register of Interest Representatives under the number 16311905144-06. See public profile on the EU Register. The statutes of European Digital Rights are available in English and French.
