What principles should guide policy-makers in designing local and international approaches for internet intermediaries in the evolving communications environment?

The internet has changed our lives and will continue to do so. It helps us connect with friends and family, study, decide what to buy, discover new hobbies, delivers us the latest news and opinions, gives us quick health and finance information and provides many and varied sources of entertainment. Among many other benefits, it has also given voice to many people and initiatives, and has amplified messages that would otherwise not receive the required time on traditional media. However, it can be a double-edged sword that amplifies harm, disinformation or illegal content and activities. Like never before, global audiences are only a few clicks away. This has prompted regulators across the world to consider how to promote safety and prevent illegal and harmful content online.
