2023* at *11:00-12:30
EDT* (15:00-16:30 UTC) the *Columbia Institute for Tele-Information
<https://www8.gsb.columbia.edu/citi/>*, as part of its *Global Digital
presents a webinar '*Social Media and International Governance: The UNESCO
Guidelines for Regulating Digital Platforms <https://bit.ly/3AvCTFa>*'.

The many issues raised by social media platforms have stimulated calls for
new governance mechanisms. Some platforms have responded by establishing
self-governance systems like oversight boards, and some governments and
regional bodies like the European Union have responded with laws and
regulations, in particular for the largest platforms. At the multilateral
level several initiatives are underway, in particular the United Nations
Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization’s (UNESCO) effort to
develop *Guidelines for Regulating Digital Platforms
<https://www.unesco.org/en/internet-conference/guidelines>*. The Guidelines
are intended to promote regulations that both support freedom of expression
and deal with content that is illegal and risks harm to democracy and human
rights. This webinar assembles a panel of leading expert participants in
the UNESCO debate and related discussions.

The group will assess driving issues and interests, negotiation dynamics,
potential outcomes and larger digital governance implications.
