UNESCO is drafting Guidelines for Regulating Digital Platforms, through multi stakeholder consultations and a global dialogue. The Guidelines aim to provide a policy framework to ensure that digital platform regulation protects and promotes freedom of expression.
The development of the Guidelines is nearing completion, and UNESCO is soliciting further inputs and perspectives from relevant stakeholders. AfLIA invites you to participate in a virtual consultation session to deliberate on issues covered in the current draft of the Guidelines (Draft 3.0) and share your perspectives as a library and information professional.
The consultation will be held on two days: [24 June] and [26 June].

Upon registration, reminders will be sent to all registrants periodically. This webinar will be hosted on Zoom Conferencing Platform. Participants, who do not have Zoom on their mobile devices and or computers, need to download, install and create an account on Zoom ahead of time (CLICK TO DOWNLOAD). Webinar attendees are encouraged to join early, preferably 15 minutes before the start of the webinar, as one may need time launch the application. The speaker will use a webcam to connect with attendees. Audio and video for the session will be streamed over computer speakers. Attendees are therefore encouraged to connect with a headset or earpiece for maximum utility.
A list of resources and further information will made be available at the end of the webinar, to enable thorough engagement with the webinar content. All registrants will have access to the presentation slides. The webinar recording will be uploaded on AfLIA Youtube Channel soon after the webinar to facilitate continuous engagement with the webinar content by webinar attendees and non-attendees.
