Disinformation and misinformation - Navigating the Information Ecosystem: The UN's Code of Conduct for Digital Platforms (Policy 8)

The United Nations is developing a Code of Conduct for Information Integrity on Digital Platforms, aimed at creating a safer, more inclusive digital space.

  • The Code of Conduct is intended to be a gold standard for information integrity.
    • It defines information integrity as the accuracy, consistency, and reliability of information.
    • The digital age has amplified the spread of misinformation, disinformation, and hate speech, polluting the information ecosystem and posing significant threats to democracy, human rights, and sustainable development.

See:  Human Rights and Artificial Intelligence Governance

  • This initiative proposes 8 principles to counteract these challenges:
    • Commitment to information integrity
    • Respect for human rights
    • Support for independent media
    • Increased transparency
    • User empowerment
    • Strengthened research and data access
    • Scaled up responses
    • Stronger disincentives
    • Enhanced trust and safety
  • The Code of Conduct will be developed through stakeholder consultations and could include the establishment of an independent observatory made up of recognized experts to assess the measures taken by the actors who commit to the Code of Conduct.
