Spotlight with Dame Jacinda Ardern, Special Envoy for the Christchurch Call

Ensuring trust and safety in the digital world

Ahead of the Christchurch Call Leaders’ Summit taking place on the 10th November afternoon, Special Envoy Jacinda Ardern will share some insights about the Summit agenda. In a time of rapid technological change, the Christchurch Call Commitments remain as relevant as ever. Aotearoa New Zealand and France will co-host the fifth Christchurch Call Leaders’ Summit in Paris on 10 November 2023. This will be an opportunity for leaders from government, the tech sector, partner organisations, and civil society to advance the vital work of the Call together. The agenda will cover the implications of powerful new and emerging AI technology for terrorist and violent extremist content online, and ways to deal with this.  It will also consider improvements to crisis response, tools for understanding algorithmic processes and the problem of online radicalisation to violence, and the benefits of a multi-stakeholder approach for delivering the Call Commitments. Call supporters commit to working transparently and in a way that respects and promotes human rights and a free, open, and secure internet. At the Summit, leaders will also consider how this approach and the Call’s effective, inclusive multistakeholder model might lend itself to work on other, related complex digital issues. https://www.christchurchcall.com/
