  • The World Economic Forum is ramping up its push for increased online censorship.
  • The WEF has rolled out its plan to “tackle” so-called “misinformation” and “harmful online content” in advance of its annual WEF summit in Davos, Switzerland. Online censorship is one of the key topics of discussion listed in the agenda for the 2023 Davos conference.
  • On its website, the WEF describes the initiative as: “The Global Coalition for Digital Safety aims to accelerate public-private cooperation to tackle harmful content online and will serve to exchange best practices for new online safety regulation, take coordinated action to reduce the risk of online harms, and drive forward collaboration on programs to enhance digital media literacy.”
