Ranking Digital Rights Launches the 2020 RDR Corporate Accountability Index
The events of the past year have brought a new urgency to debates about technology and power and their implications for both individual rights and democracy writ large. Overlapping public health, human rights, and electoral crises in 2020 raised tough new questions for companies about their role in protecting users’ data and freedom of expression in the face of government censorship and surveillance demands. Public consciousness about the power of algorithms—often the engine driving profits for platforms like Facebook and Google—reached new heights, increasing pressure on companies to divulge more information about exactly how their technologies work.

At the same time, many tech and telecom companies also saw their profits skyrocket, especially e-commerce titans like Amazon and Alibaba, which performed especially poorly when it came to respecting users’ rights.

How did companies do in 2020 when it came to respecting users' freedom of expression and privacy? Are they keeping up with their obligations? And if not, what will it take for them to do better?

Join Ranking Digital Rights for a first look at the 2020 RDR Corporate Accountability Index and a discussion of how policymakers, advocates, and investors can use our data to hold tech and telecom companies accountable for upholding our fundamental rights in 2021.
