Curbing harmful content: Social media for peace

Friday 12 november 2021 10:00 - 10:45
In conflict-affected contexts, harmful online content fuels tensions, triggers outbreaks of violence, and is used to undermine the legitimacy and integrity of mediation and peace processes. While the industry has taken measures, such as adopting corporate policies and community guidelines, moderation of harmful content remains a critical challenge to peace and security. The panel will discuss opportunities for engagement and cooperation between international actors, national institutions, civil society organizations, and social media platforms to prevent harmful content and promote peace and mediation efforts.
