InternetLab is an independent think tank focused on human rights and digital technologies. It is based in São Paulo, Brazil, and since 2014 works as a non-profit organization. As a human rights organization, we believe that the digital environment must be vibrant, creative, inclusive, protective to fundamental rights, an enabler to the quality of the democratic public sphere, and a promoter of social justice – which implies that the decisions of state and private agents are always under critical analysis. We deliver sophisticated, evidence-based, and impact-oriented social and legal research, as well as analysis to identify and clarify critical issues, thereby helping to build the intellectual and evidential foundation for public awareness, action, and policymaking.
