    UNESCO, as enshrined in its Constitution, promotes the "free flow of ideas by word and image", and has committed itself to enabling a free, open and accessible Internet space as part of promoting comprehensive freedom of expression online and offline. We hope that this publication will provide UNESCO Member States and other stakeholders, national and international, with a useful reference tool. It is our wish that this publication will contribute to bringing stakeholders together for informed debate on approaches that are conducive to privacy protection without compromising freedom of expression. In the coming years, UNESCO will specifically seek to disseminate information about good practices and international collaboration concerning the points of intersection between freedom of expression and privacy. Research on safeguarding the principle of freedom of expression in Internet policy across a range of issues will continue to be part of UNESCO's normative mandate and technical advice to stakeholders
