Access to reliable information is essential for participation in public discourse and allows citizens to make informed decisions and participate in society. The free flow of information is a key part of advancing economic, political, and human rights around the world, ensuring that the benefits of modern economies and technologies are not limited to the few. Experts from civil society will discuss the concept of the right to information as a frame for ongoing debates around mis- and dis-information, online harms, platform power, and tech governance.
