Idea of a Multi-stakeholder Approach to Govern Online Freedom of Expression
Computer-mediated communication enables information to move quickly across various boundaries, shifts control of online content to everyone's fingertips, and distributes messages that are vulnerable to bias and distortion. Communication, of course, plays a key role in human rights with regard to freedom of expression and opinion in the democratic ecosystem. But this freedom is not absolute. It can be limited in order to protect the rights of others or to respond to threats to public order and safety. Restrictions thus need to be formulated and implemented constitutionally while governance must be transparent and accountable. This presentation will focus on offering ideas for realizing such governance with a multi-stakeholder approach.
