Amnesty International Submission to the European Commission’s Consultation on the Digital Services Act Package

Amnesty International welcomes the opportunity to provide feedback to the European Commission’s Digital Services Act package. In this document, we outline key policy recommendations to guide the development of the Digital
Services Act.

Amnesty International is a worldwide organisation committed to protecting human rights, including in the digital space. In our 2019 report “Surveillance Giants: How the business model of Google and Facebook threatens human rights”, we set out an analysis of the concentration of power in dominant online platforms, so-called ‘gate keepers’, and the impact of their surveillance-based business model on the exercise of human rights online.
