Online platforms have been co-opted for nefarious purposes in recent years. They are a breeding ground for spreading views that are the ills of our society, including racism, xenophobia, misogyny, Islamophobia, homophobia, and Antisemitism. Tech companies such as Twitter and Facebook have been publicly reprimanded for not doing enough to prevent the spread of such abhorrent views online, whereas other companies such as Google are also having problems of Antisemitism amongst their staff.
This panel will discuss what tech companies are and are not doing to condemn Antisemitic behaviour online, including the policies and enforcement measures taken. It will also question what we can do as citizens to push these companies to making their platforms a safer space for all.
The Henry Jackson Society is pleased to welcome Lord Mann, Dr David Rich and Dr Julian Hargreaves to this timely event and invites you to take part in this important discussion.
