Civil society shall be at the heart of establishing democratic safeguards in the digital space

Monday , 20 September 2021

By the civil society coalition on Information and Democracy

The Initiative on Information and Democracy, which aims at implementing democratic safeguards in the information and communication space, is vital for online human rights and for the future of democratic public deliberation. 

We, organizations committed to defending the exercise of freedom of expression and opinion, both online and offline, have decided to participate in this process to put forward civil society proposals. We act independently of the interests of private companies and political powers.

The Forum on Information and Democracy makes policy recommendations based on contributions from experts, researchers, intellectuals, and organizations around the world. In the future, we intend to play a role in defining and implementing them. 

The success of our endeavor lies in this fine balance between the role of states in adopting and enforcing democratic norms, and the role of civil society in contributing with ideas and external analysis. 

On the occasion of the first Summit for Information and Democracy, we call on the signatory states to work with the Forum on Information and Democracy and our civil society coalition in implementing policy recommendations.
