Earlier this year, Reporters Without Borders created the Information and Democracy Commission, co-chaired by Nobel peace laureate Shirin Ebadi and Christophe Deloire, Secretary-General of Reporters Without Borders. On 5 November 2018, the Commission released the "International Declaration on Information and Democracy". The Declaration stresses that the communication and information space is a common good and has social, cultural and democratic value, which must be protected.
