UN Human Rights Council Resolution on Disinformation Draws Mixed Opinions

Access Partnership shared that at the beginning of April, the United Nations (UN) Human Rights Council adopted a resolution, “Countering disinformation for the promotion and protection of human rights and fundamental freedoms,” at the request of Ukraine, a UN member state.

Access Partnership writes, “The increase of disinformation on social media platforms is allegedly affecting the operation of organisations working in Ukraine to mitigate the consequences of the war by providing humanitarian aid. Member states including Poland, the UK and the US welcomed the resolution. However, some countries declined to approve the text, including China, France, and Venezuela. These nations cited varying degrees of concern surrounding the texts’ lack of detail and its failure to reference the role of social media companies in preventing disinformation on their platforms.”
