Meta's 1st Annual Human Rights Report Wrongs Humans of India

Following growing criticism against Meta’s efforts to contain the spread of hate speech and incitement to violence, it released its first annual Human Rights Report, which includes a brief section reporting on the Meta commissioned independent human rights impact assessment (HRIA) for India.

Furthermore, Meta fails to publish the full report of the HRIA which leads to concerns around transparency and accountability.
