The second Summit for Information and Democracy will be held on the sidelines of the UNGA

The Second Summit of the Partnership for Information and Democracy will be held on September 22, 2022, on the sidelines of the UN General Assembly. The Partnership is currently supported by 45 countries and serves as a framework for multilateral reflection on the implementation of democratic guarantees in the global communication and information space.

The Summit’s second edition will bring together Foreign Ministers from the Partnership’s member countries as well as representatives from civil society. Among other initiatives, the recommendations of the Forum’s working group on accountability regimes for social networks and their users will be published.

Launched by Reporters Without Borders in 2018, one of the Initiative’s key results is an international coalition of 43 civil society and research organizations formed to promote democratic principles in the digital space. The Summit will thus allow for better coordination of efforts to create a democratic digital space.
