New America

Tuesday, May 21, 2019 - 2:30pm to 4:00pm

How much progress have major companies made in the past year in respecting users' freedom of expression and privacy? How can the RDR Index findings inform global regulatory debates about privacy, disinformation, and hate speech online? An overview of the 2019 RDR Index results will be followed by a discussion of what needs to be done to ensure that technology is designed and governed in a way that is compatible with democracy and human rights.
