Israeli Justice Minister Gideon Sa’ar has set up a special committee headed by the Justice Ministry’s director-general, Eran Davidi, that will be tasked with making regulatory recommendations vis-a-vis social media networks, as well as emerging technologies in Israel and abroad.
Members of the committee include representatives from the Prime Minister’s Office, the Finance Ministry, the Communications Ministry, the Economy and Industry Ministry, the Israeli Innovation Authority, as well as various offices within the Justice Ministry, including the Office of the State Attorney’s Cyber Unit and the Privacy Protection Authority.
In a letter dated October 13, 2021, and first cited by Ynet, Sa’ar wrote that the committee would be charged with “formulating measures and actions to bridge the ever-widening gap between technological developments and existing regulatory and legal arrangements in Israel, and to address the negative social influences of various phenomena inherent in this gap.”
