State of Digital Rights: 2022

It’s been another big year in the Australian digital rights movement. 

Today we’re launching our State of Digital Rights Report: a 2022 Retrospective. In it, we reflect on the key developments in digital rights in Australia over the course of the year and look ahead to what we expect for 2023.

As 2022 draws to a close, we are seeing big shifts in the internet economy that create openings to fight for better alternatives to the business models of surveillance and tracking which have defined modern big-tech.

We will be pushing politicians and lawmakers to get privacy reform right, fighting the culture of surveillance, and facilitating important discussions and actions to pave the way for a better, fairer internet. Read more about our plans here.

We won’t be able to build a better democracy without building a democratic internet. 2023 is going to be a big year for Digital Rights Watch, but we can’t do this work without your support.
