This brief reflects the consensus view of GNI’s multi-stakeholder membership of companies, civil society organizations, investors, and academics, and is being released amid escalating government calls for action or legislation around the world to monitor or restrict access to online content on the grounds that it allegedly radicalizes individuals, supports terrorist organizations, or encourages violence or terrorist acts.

The GNI’s recommendations aims at ensuring freedom of expression and privacy are preserved and at enabling greater cooperation between governments and technology companies in the global fight against terror.
