On 9 May 2019, LSTS Professor Joris van Hoboken joined the second, invitation-only session of the Transatlantic High-Level Working Group on Content Moderation Online and Freedom of Expression, which took place in Annenberg Community Beach House, Santa Monica, California (US). The Transatlantic Working Group (TWG) is a project of the Annenberg Public Policy Center (APPC) of the University of Pennsylvania, in partnership with The Annenberg Foundation Trust, and the Institute for Information Law (IViR), which is affiliated with the Faculty of Law of the University of Amsterdam. The group offers a forum for experts from diverse backgrounds - politics, academia, business, technology and civil society - to observe policies and identify best practices in eliminating “hate speech, violent extremism, and viral deception online” while shielding free speech.
