Description

While the challenges presented by the spread of violent, extremist, and harmful content online may be daunting, a strong and coordinated global action and concrete steps can turn online expression into a tool to strengthen worldwide democracy. With the Internet becoming the main source of information for citizens around the world, traditional media will also need to fundamentally change their approach. This panel will discuss the importance of a global response to steer online freedom of speech away from fake news and harmful content.
