About the DPL:

The DPL is a new inter-governmental working group focused on charting the regulatory and policy path forward to prevent and counter disinformation, hate speech, extremism and terrorism online.

It is comprised of a core group of senior representatives of relevant ministries and regulators from key liberal democratic countries. The DPL is intended to foster inter-governmental exchange, provide policy makers with access to sector-leading expertise and research, and build an international community of policy practice around key regulatory challenges in the digital policy space.

The project is funded by the German Federal Foreign Office (Division 607).
