UNESCO states position on ethical issues in the information society
UNESCO has published a brochure entitled “Ethical Implications of Emerging Technologies” dealing with the consequences of the use of RFID chips, biometric identification systems, and location-based services (LBSs). Written by lawyers from the US, the brochure was published as part of the “NGO Geneva Net Dialogue” in which non-governmental organizations stated their case after the UN World Summit on Information Freedom and the Internet Governance Forum. The results of the dialogue are to be included in the WSIS Action Line C10 “Ethical dimensions of the Information Society.”
