The NGO Državljan D underlaying principle is the inclusive promotion of human rights and digital rights.

We believe in open digital environment available to all and we consider the digital environment to be animportant part of the general political environment. To that end we’re focusing on three key areas: digital rights, media literacy and active citizenship.

We promote human and digital rights by organising public events (seminars, workshops, roundtable discussions), performing calls to action in the before mentioned fields, conducting analysis and reports of the current practices in the field and connecting with similar organisations through-out the region.
