Report Launch – Online Content Regulations in Asia-Pacific
18 January @ 5:00 PM - 6:30 PM BMT
Increased digitalization and internet penetration have led to the proliferation of fake news, hate speech, phishing scams, and breaches of privacy and personal data. As a result, governments have come up with a range of legal responses. However, these legal measures affect internet users and members of civil society and their ability to conduct their advocacy.
Online Content Regulations in Asia-Pacific identifies and analyses online content regulations that countries have employed to meet the challenges of hate speech, disinformation, online scams and cybersecurity, as well as the actions of internet service/platform providers. The aim is to review the impact of such legislation on civil society and its members, and form the foundation of training programmes and advocacy works.
This report launch is part of the Digital Rights Programme for Civil Society Organisations, jointly organised by Asia Centre and Google Asia Pacific.
