What is expected of supporters and partners?
A supporter is a government or online service provider that has pledged to the 25 Christchurch Call commitments. Online service providers and governments progress the commitments in a range of ways, individually and collectively.
A partner is an organisation that is not a government or online service provider but is committed to supporting the objectives of the Call and contributing to the realisation of the Call commitments through their work.
Being part of the Call Community
Progress against commitments for all supporters and partners should be consistent with our core principles of transparency; respect for human rights and fundamental freedoms; multistakeholderism; and a free, open and secure internet.
The Call is a multistakeholder Community and supporters and partners are encouraged to engage with, and draw on, the expertise and experiences of fellow supporters, partners, and the Christchurch Call Advisory Network. The Call convenes Leaders’ Summits to confirm priorities and identify areas of focus for the Community as we work to eradicate terrorist and violent extremist content online. Supporters and partners are encouraged to attend Summits at the CEO/Head of State level.
The Call Secretariat (comprising officials from France and New Zealand) convenes working groups and one-off policy discussions and webinars to progress work. All members of the Community are invited to engage.
We encourage supporters and partners to be open in their engagements and welcome information sharing on shared priorities or issues, for example regulation, innovative tools or processes, education, or crisis response.
Consistent with guidance provided by Call Leaders, the focus of the Community is currently on onboarding online service providers and partners.
