Christchurch Call to eliminate terrorist and violent extremist content online adopted
On 15 May in Paris, New Zealand Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern and French President Emmanuel Macron brought together a group of world leaders and major tech companies to adopt the Christchurch Call - named for the New Zealand city in which 51 members of its Muslim community were murdered in a live-streamed terrorist attack on March 15.
Those countries, tech companies and organisations supporting the Christchurch Call commit to a set of collective actions that aim to eliminate terrorist and violent extremist content online. Measures include developing tools to prevent the upload of terrorist and violent extremist content; countering the roots of violent extremism; increasing transparency around the removal and detection of content, and reviewing how companies’ algorithms direct users to violent extremist content.
