Global Network Initiative

Global Network Initiative

A collective of information, telecommunication and internet companies, human rights and civil society organizations, academic institutions and investor groups today launched the Global Network Initiative, a global code of conduct for promoting the protection and advancement of freedom of expression and privacy.

In response to Congressional criticism and investigation of their active support of Chinese government suppression of dissent, the GNI guidelines provide member companies a mechanism for policing their global activities and business operations while at the same time protecting market share.
