G3ict and the Centre for Internet and Society Announce Collaboration on White Paper Comparing Internet Accessibility Policies and Legislative Frameworks in 15 Countries across the World


G3ict and the Centre for Internet and Society , Bangalore, India are collaborating on a white paper comparing internet accessibility policies and legislative frameworks in 15 countries across the world. The paper seeks to identify initiatives which different countries have taken to make the internet more accessible. Countries chosen for the study include both developed and developing countries having very comprehensive legislations like the United States and Germany, as well as countries having less detailed policies which are both low in scope of coverage as well as applicability like Portugal. The study will map the policies against several criteria such as their scope of coverage (only the internet or including electronic accessibility), applicability (only to the Government or to both the public and private sector), efficacy of the monitoring mechanism, provision for review, penalty in case of non compliance and so on.

Based on the findings of the study, the paper will identify generic options which policy makers could adopt to address the specific needs of their countries. This study will also form part of the larger tool kit for policy makers which G3ict is jointly publishing with the ITU.

The paper will be peer reviewed by experts in different countries to ensure that information which is given in the study is accurate and up to date. The paper will be published on the G3ict website in the first week of October and will be open for review by interested experts.
