Advancing Digital Safety: A Framework to Align Global Action

About the project:
World Economic Forum  – Research Fellow (2021)

About the report:
The World Economic Forum’s Advancing Global Digital Content Safety initiative, launched in 2019, aims to improve online safety from the user’s perspective. Key questions addressed include assessing the safety of digital platforms, the responsibilities of the public and private sectors, necessary regulatory schemes, and the measurement of industry-wide progress.
This White Paper establishes a user-centric framework for advancing digital safety, considering tensions between privacy, free expression, innovation, business incentives, private power, and safety. The proposed framework focuses on exposure to harm, undue influence, available remedies, and personal data safety. A majority (75%) of the experts surveyed agreed that too much harmful content meets inadequate action on the part of platforms. Urgent collaboration across the public and private sectors is necessary to counter false health narratives, deter coordinated acts of violence, and better protect users online, particularly marginalized and disadvantaged communities.
