Conferencia UNESCO The "Internet for Trust" Conference, organized by UNESCO, addressed the regulation of platforms, an important topic for democracies, lives and agencies around the world. There is a need for more spaces for the exchange of ideas and experiences, especially from an intersectional and Global South perspective, for the formulation of Guidelines for the Regulation of Digital Platforms, considering that the topic involves enormous complexities. Furthermore, it is important that these Guidelines are the product of a careful process that reinforces the human rights to freedom of expression and access to information.

Cybercrime is currently a global concern. Therefore, several States are creating tools to combat it. International organizations, such as the UN and the World Economic Forum, have drawn attention to the issue. As it is a phenomenon without borders, there is an increased interest in having more coordination and cooperation mechanisms for the prevention and punishment of crimes committed through information and communication technologies.
