Join Open Rights Group's Executive Director Jim Killock to discuss the Government's Online Harms white paper. The discussion will be followed by a social at a nearby Pub.

The Government's Online Harms Whitepaper seeks to establish a duty of care on platforms to combat online harms. This model raises very real concerns about the rights impact of these proposals.

Jim will:
- present the findings of the new report released by Open Rights Group on content regulation proposals;
- discuss the problems with the formulation; and
- explain what comes next in the ever growing and moving debate on the responsibilities of social media companies.

Report - Content Regulation Part II - https://www.openrightsgroup.org/about/reports/org-regulation-report-ii

The event is free to attend, all are welcome.

No prior knowledge required just a commitment to being involved in the debates about the future of human rights.
