UNESCO Conference on Regulating Digital Platforms

The HBI, together with the Humboldt Institute for Internet and Society (HIIG), the Department of Legal Theory and Future of Law at the University of Innsbruck and the German Commission for UNESCO, is organising a day zero event in the run-up to the global UNESCO Conference Internet for Trust. Towards Guidelines for Regulating Digital Platforms for Information as a Public Good. There, participants will discuss how advisory bodies established by platform companies can contribute to a human rights-based and accountable sphere of discourse.
Prof. Dr. Wolfgang Schulz and Prof. Dr. Matthias C. Kettemann have already moderated a one-hour online briefing on the contents and goals of the conference in the run-up to the conference.

About the Global UNESCO Conference
From 21 to 23 February 2023, UNESCO will host the Internet for Trust conference in Paris. The aim of the conference is to adopt minimum standards for the regulation of digital platforms. Digital technologies have changed our lives, have created new opportunities and possibilities, but also risks. Digital platforms are increasingly places of disinformation, hate speech, conspiracy theories and other anti-democratic content. UNESCO is therefore convening representatives from politics, academia, the judiciary, civil society, and the private sector from around the world at the end of February to discuss issues related to the regulation of digital platforms. Based on the multi-stakeholder approach, the participants want to develop a guidance document to promote freedom of expression and the availability of accurate and reliable information in the public space. At the same time, the guide will provide guidance on how to deal with content that poses a threat to human rights and democracy. The guide is aimed at governmental, civil society and private actors seeking to regulate, co-regulate and self-regulate digital platforms.
