Christchurch Call Summit

Paris, France

The Prime Minister of New Zealand Jacinda Ardern and French President Emmanuel Macron are co-organising a meeting on 15 May 2019 in Paris, France.

The meeting will convene world leaders and CEOs of tech companies in order to agree to a pledge called the ‘Christchurch Call’ to eliminate terrorist and violent extremist content online. The Christchurch Summit is an attempt to bring to an end the ability to use social media to organise and promote terrorism and violent extremism, in the wake of the 15 March terrorist attacks in Christchurch, New Zealand. Jacinda Ardern will also meet with civil society leaders on 14 May to discuss the content of the call.
