By signing the call, eight technology companies, seventeen countries and the EU Commission committed to prevent the spread of violent and terrorist content such as the live streaming of the March 15 terrorist attack in Christchurch, New Zealand.

What this call today shows is that there is an even larger need than ever before for sustained and ongoing collaboration - Paul Fehlinger, I&J Deputy Executive Director
