Council of Europe Digital Partnership: two new partners

The International Chamber of Commerce and The LEGO Group have joined the Council of Europe’s Digital Partnership, an initiative aimed at fostering cooperation with companies and their business associations to promote respect for human rights, democracy and the rule of law on the internet. During a signing ceremony in Strasbourg, Secretary General Marija Pejčinović Burić exchanged letters formalising their collaboration in the partnership with Andrew Wilson, Global Policy Director of the International Chamber of Commerce; and Edward Lewin, Vice-President of Government and Public Affairs of The LEGO Group.

After the ceremony, the new partners held an exchange of views with delegations of the 46 Council of Europe member states participating in a meeting of the Committee of Ministers Thematic Coordinator on Information Policy. Since its launch in 2016, in the framework of the Digital Partnership, 27 companies and business associations have been invited to join Council of Europe activities related to the fight against cybercrime, data protection, artificial intelligence, freedom of expression, promotion of equality and non-discrimination, education and the protection of children.

Following the decision of the Committee of Ministers on 16 March 2022 the Russian Federation is no longer a member of the Council of Europe. The website will be updated as soon as possible to take account of this development.
