International Federation of Library Associations and Institutions (IFLA) has responded to a call for inputs, issued by the United Nations Special Rapporteur on the promotion and protection of the right to freedom of opinion and expression, about the human rights impacts of measures against disinformation.

Access to information and intellectual freedom are among the key ethical and institutional commitments of the global library field; while information literacy has long been an important competency which libraries work to support and champion among their communities. Drawing on library experiences with the above, this input highlights some good practices and key considerations around freedom of opinion and expression in addressing challenges raised by dis and misinformation.
