also contribute information and knowledge to local and global

separate but interdependent fields of Internet policy and practice,
within the mandate of UNESCO, perceived to be central to achieving this
vision. These are access to information and knowledge, freedom of
expression, privacy, and ethical norms and behaviour online. This report
assesses these four fields by viewing them as keystones for building a
free and trusted global Internet that will enable inclusive Knowledge
