Goals / Remit

European Digital Rights (EDRi) was founded in June 2002 and its mandate covers all 45 member states of the Council of Europe. Currently 44 privacy and civil rights organisations have EDRi membership. They are based or have offices in 20 different countries in Europe.

The need for cooperation among digital rights organizations active in Europe is increasing as more and more EU regulation regarding the internet, copyright and privacy has a strong impact on fundamental rights. Some examples of legislation and developments EDRi is working on are the ePrivacy directive, the implementation of the GDPR, the copyright directive, mass surveillance and cross border access to e-evidence, the review of the telecoms package and net neutrality, privatised law enforcement, trade agreements and internet governance.

Since January 2003, EDRi regularly publishes the EDRi-gram, a bi-weekly email newsletter about digital civil rights in Europe.
