Submission to the Special Rapporteur on Contemporary Forms of Racism, Racial Discrimination, Xenophobia and Related Intolerance

The surveillance-based business models of Big Tech companies such as Google and Meta are the root cause of harmful content proliferation on their platforms. This business model is based on algorithms that amplify hateful and harmful content, which can create echo chambers of hateful content that can result in offline violence, as was the case with atrocities committed against the Rohingya in 2017. Platform companies, such as Meta and Google remain unregulated, and they do not take sufficient measures to prevent harms of their products and hateful content that is spread on their platforms.
