Online platforms and spaces are critical to the enjoyment of freedom of expression in the digital age. But they can also facilitate the spread of harmful forms of content—like disinformation and hate speech.
In recent years, this has resulted in increasing regulation by governments, and stricter moderation by platforms. These responses tend to be developed in closed spaces, and fail to sufficiently reflect human rights standards.
At GPD, our focus is twofold: making the spaces where content policies are developed more open, inclusive and transparent; and engaging directly to ensure approaches to content regulation and moderation are rights-respecting.
