In November 2018, the Special Rapporteur held a two-day workshop in Berlin to discuss how approaches to commercial content moderation should meaningfully integrate local engagement and input in addressing difficult areas of content, such as hate speech and threats of violence online. The workshop was held with support from the German Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ).

We are pleased to publish a summary of the workshop – please check it out below.
