The year 2022 marks the 25th anniversary of the mandate of the OSCE Representative on Freedom of the Media. In 1997, the year this institution was established, only 1.7 percent of the global population was online, and digital technologies supporting online communication were novel and virtuously optimistic. Twenty-five years on, the number of people who access the internet has risen to more than 80 percent across the OSCE region. This monumental expansion has been profoundly beneficial for freedom of expression, the free flow of information and the ability to seek, receive and impart information and ideas of all kinds across borders, and across the globe. This has been crucial for economic, public and political participation, for democratization, for education and health, for holding power to account, and for shedding light on war crimes and other human rights violations. At the same time, it has also given rise to mass surveillance as well as cybercrimes, and the spread of illegal and harmful content online.
