LEGAL ORGANISATIONS AND NGOS
INTERNET FREEDOM FOUNDATION
Internet Freedom Foundation (IFF) is a domestically funded not for profit organisation with a mission to advance digital rights in India. Our work is guided by the principles of progressive constitutionalism to advance the democratizing potential of technology and individual liberty. IFF is committed to defending and expanding fundamental rights as India gets more digitally connected. As part of this mandate, we strategically engage with courts, regulators, and other legal institutions across India with a focus on institutional change. Our model draws the public into processes which otherwise lack glamour and wider engagement. Technology and user rights are mainstream concerns impacting a growing number of Indians and need greater resources and organisational infrastructure. Apart from strategic litigation, we also engage with different government ministries and Members of Parliament. We believe in institutional change and these verticals play an integral role towards furthering our mission. More information about our model is available here, and on our website.
