Who should control what gets shared over social media?

With the public space having moved largely online – it’s where we live, learn, work and protest – there is a lot at stake with content moderation. IFEX reached out to a few member organisations from across the globe and asked them to share some of their thoughts on this increasingly complex global issue.

The StoryMap we created includes powerful and insightful responses from these eight experts: Mishi Choudhary from the Software Freedom Law Centre (SFLC) India, Asad Baig from Media Matters for Democracy, Nighat Dad from Digital Rights Foundation, Mona Shtaya from the Arab Center for Social Media Development (7amleh), María Paz Canales from Derechos Digitales, Gilbert Sendugwa from the Africa Freedom of Information Center, Juliet Nanfuka from CIPESA, and Gennie Gebhart from the Electronic Frontier Foundation.
