The Council of Europe’s newly established expert committee on the integrity of online information held its first time meeting on the 15th and 16th March, to discuss its goals and plans. The MSI-INF will prepare a draft guidance note on “countering the spread of online mis- and disinformation through fact-checking and platform design solutions in a human rights compliant manner”.
Ronan Fahy, a researcher at the DTDM, is an independent expert in the MSI-INF Committee. He has now been appointed as a drafting rapporteur for the Committee’s guidance note. A draft of the guidance note is scheduled to be finalised by the end of 2023.
