The U.S. Agency for Global Media and the National Democratic Institute invite you to join a virtual discussion on
“Securing Internet Freedom – Forging a New Policy Framework”
Authoritarian controls on internet access have increased at an unprecedented pace in the past two years, particularly under claims of preventing disinformation during the coronavirus pandemic. As more governments seek to restrict information, democracies must evaluate the impacts of these controls and develop effective policy responses.
Our panelists will examine the scope of global internet restrictions, current strategies and technology being pursued to circumvent them, and the prospects of policy solutions to mitigate the threats to free expression and government accountability.
USAGM’s Media for Democracy Forum brings together media experts, practitioners, opinion leaders, and policymakers to explore current trends in global media and their impact on democracy, as well as to identify solutions to the biggest threats facing free media.
