From 2020 to 2022, CIGI and Reset partnered to create the Global Platform Governance Network (GPGN). The GPGN consisted of a global community of civil servants, legislative staff and regulators committed to a collaborative and harmonized approach to address pressing issues related to digital platform governance.
Regular interactive sessions were joined and led by eminent international thinkers, including:
- Audrey Tang, Taiwan’s digital minister;
- Marietje Schaake, international policy director, Cyber Policy Center at Stanford University, and former Member of the European Parliament;
- Rebecca MacKinnon, founding director, Ranking Digital Rights; and
- Claire Wardle, co-founder and US director, First Draft.
GPGN meetings enabled participants to discuss pressing platform governance challenges, gain a deeper understanding of policy-level solutions and form relationships with international peers for future collaborations. Key discussion topics included privacy, competition, online safety, electoral integrity, and countering online hate and extremism.
