The Council of Europe conference of ministers responsible for Media and Information Society called Artificial Intelligence - Intelligent Politics will take place online on 10 and 11 June 2021.
Ministers will meet to agree on actions required to address the radical changes in the media and information environment brought on by massive digitalisation, with dramatic effects for the exercise of freedom of expression and substantial impact on other human rights and freedoms. Ministers will also discuss the dangerous backsliding in the area of safety of journalists and the respect of the cornerstone role of freedom of expression in democratic societies. The Ministerial Conference will lead to the adoption of a final declaration and four resolutions addressing these issues through instruments that will secure the political engagement of the Council of Europe and its member States.
While participation is by invitation only, further information can be found on the official webpage.
