CDT Comments to the UN Special Rapporteur on Freedom of Expression for Upcoming Report on Disinformation

The Center for Democracy & Technology welcomes the opportunity to provide comments to the United Nations Special Rapporteur’s consultation on disinformation. Disinformation is a complex topic that implicates freedom of expression, journalism, politics, technology, and more.

In these comments, CDT shares analysis and resources addressing three specific topics relevant to disinformation:

  • Existing research and the gaps in our understanding of how disinformation affects vulnerable communities;
  • Election-related disinformation and its relationship to voter suppression; and
  • The risks to freedom of expression that arise at the intersection of intermediary liability law and disinformation.
