Based on the Communication on the ‘Digital Compass: the European way for the Digital Decade’, the Digital Decade Policy Programme 2030 sets out common commitments taken by Member States and the European Commission to achieve a successful digitalisation based on leadership and values, and outlines objectives and targets to foster a human-centred, fundamental-rights-based, sustainable, sovereign and more prosperous digital future for Europe by 2030.
Simultaneously , a European Declaration on Digital Rights and Principles for the Digital Decade was signed by the European Parliament, the Council and the Commission and lays down digital principles to guide our Union in its’ digital transformation.
The overall aim of this declaration on digital principles and rights is to promote a values-based European digital landscape to help nurture more democratic and inclusive societies, ensuring a level playing field for all EU citizens to access and leverage the full potential of an increasingly digital world.
In the process of developing the aforementioned declaration, with the aim of gaining the perspectives of EU citizens to help formulate the proposed European digital principles, a Eurobarometer Report on Digital Rights and Principles was produced, based on consultations conducted in September-October 2021.
The current report follows up on the results of the previous Eurobarometer survey on digital rights and principles, exploring whether, or to what extent, EU citizens’ attitudes have evolved regarding this fast-changing field.
