The UN Secretary General in 2021 called States to convene in a multi-stakeholder dialogue aimed also at "promoting a trustworthy internet by introducing accountability criteria for discrimination and misleading content". The Global Digital Compact is bringing together 193 countries and hundreds of companies, think tanks and civil society organizations to discuss digital cooperation. In June we wrapped up 6 months of consultations with thousands of stakeholders to hear their priorities and concerns. The negotiations will start in early 2024. The Lighting Talk will focus on the state-of-art, the challenges, and the opportunities for a Global Compact (that is: a political agreement) in the field of Trust & Safety.
Lightning talks are 5-7 minute talks grouped with other 5-7 minute talks across a 50 minute session. There will be time for Q&A after all of the lightning talks in a session.
