This book analyses new challenges and future potential of Information and Communication Technologies (ICTs) on the protection of human rights for persons with disabilities. Its main ambition is to identify a new global and transnational governance able to determine the proper legislative framework to guarantee both inclusive digital equality and access to ICTs’ advantages to persons with disabilities without undue violation of their fundamental human rights. For this purpose, it collects some of the research papers presented by scholars and stakeholders who joined the “BIDS Project” network during a dedicated international workshop, organised in Pavia on May 20-21, 2019.

The book is divided into three sections. The first one addresses the relevant legal and policy framework adopting a multilevel approach (encompassing the international, European and national levels). The second one focuses on new challenges related to accessibility, human dignity and privacy concerns emerging from the widespread diffusion of digital technologies among persons with disabilities. Finally, the third one collects best practices by civil society, presented by members of representatives’ association of disabled, academics, and private sector experts in ICTs, aimed at achieving a ‘digital inclusive society’ for and with persons with disabilities, in compliance with the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) promoted by the United Nation.
