Hidden in Plain Sight: Telco Accountability Research Using Ranking Digital Rights Methodology
Balkans
Telcos in Albania, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Kosovo, North Macedonia, Moldova, and Serbia are coming under scrutiny for their lack of transparency and vagueness around policies related to freedom of expression and privacy. Following the methodology of Ranking Digital Rights (RDR), an independent research programme under the auspices of the policy think tank New America that ranked 12 of the world’s most powerful telcos based on their commitments to protect users’ freedom of expression and privacy rights, BIRN analysed the practices of the two largest telcos in each of the Balkan countries covered in this report, for a total of 12 companies, to achieve a broad understanding of the challenges faced in the region.

Ranking digital rights in East and Southern Africa: The polices and practices of telecommunication companies
East and Southern Africa
This research report uses the Ranking Digital Rights (RDR) Corporate Accountability Index methodology to analyse the policies of eight telecommunications companies operating across four African countries — Tanzania, Uganda, Zambia, and Zimbabwe. Specifically, to evaluate and record how each company’s disclosed policies and practices affect people’s rights to freedom of expression and privacy. For each of these four countries, we selected the two biggest telecommunications companies in terms of subscribers. These companies are, Airtel and Vodacom in Tanzania; Airtel and MTN in Uganda; Airtel and MTN in Zambia; and Econet and Net One in Zimbabwe. In addition to evaluating the prepaid mobile services, this study also analyses the mobile money, or "digital wallets," services that each company provides.
