The recommendations presented below are the product of a yearlong study conducted by an international team of researchers,1 with guidance from an international steering committee of experts2 convened by the Israel Democracy Institute (IDI) and Yad Vashem. The process included workshops in Jerusalem (hosted by the IDI), Geneva (hosted by the Geneva Academy for International Humanitarian Law and Human Rights), and Irvine (hosted by the Center on Globalization, Law and Society of the University of California at Irvine), and the writing of three detailed research papers that offer multiple policy recommendations. Throughout the study, consultations were held by the research team with academics, policy researchers, government officials, human rights activists, industry policy officers, technology experts, and others.
