The Global Network Initiative (GNI) welcomes the opportunity to engage with the Office of the High Commissioner for Human Rights (OHCHR) on the challenges to freedom of opinion and expression in times of armed conflict and other disturbances to inform the Special Rapporteur’s scoping report for submission to the 77th session of the UN General Assembly.

In our submission, we emphasize that international human rights law should always be at the center of company and government decisions related to freedom of expression, including during times of conflict. Throughout the document we expand on this assertion, providing analysis and recommendations for how actors considering content moderation decisions in times of conflict can navigate the complex interplay between international human rights law and international humanitarian law when both are applicable.
