Louisa Klingvall has been a team leader in the Fundamental Rights Unit of the European Commission DG Justice since 2012. Her main focus of work comprises of dealing with fundamental rights aspects of the Commission’s digital policies files. In this capacity, she has been closely involved in the Commissions work on illegal content, disinformation, and more recently, artificial intelligence.
She is also charged with ensuring the overall coordination of the anti-racism team and of the work under the voluntary Code of Conduct on tackling illegal hate speech online with major IT Platforms.
It is a tragic reality that hateful ideology has found fertile ground online and offline, with consequences affecting not only Americans but people around the world. We cannot stand idle in the face of bias, bigotry, and extremism. Together, at the Eradicate Hate Summit and beyond, the collective will of individuals and organizations is needed to galvanize all people of good will to protect and defend our communities.
