SWOTing the Christchuch Call

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

The Christchurch Call (https://www.christchurchcall.com) was supported by by 17 nations and a number of technology companies on 15 May 2019. This public session about the Call will have three parts to it.

First, we will have a panel of diverse stakeholders talking about the Call and their perspectives on the Call, the process to create it, and what they want to see happen now.

Secondly, we will then all get out our pens, post-it notes and get SWOT’ing (identifying strengths, weaknesses, opportunities and threats). Following on from the Voices for Action, we seek to identify the key concerns for civil society organisations, the protection and promotion of human rights online in diverse regions, and the evolution of the Internet.

Finally, we will come back together, reflect on the opportunities we have identified and some of the key concerns and outstanding questions we, as civil society, have about the Christchurch Call. We will consider constructive ways and next steps for helping to ensure the Call’s positive potential is harnessed rather than the risks it also introduces for human rights and sustainable development.
