Peter Stern

Policy Manager for Stakeholder Engagement
Menlo Park, CA
Peter Stern is a Manager in the Product Policy group at Facebook in Menlo Park, California. Product Policy is responsible for writing and interpreting global policies governing what users can share on Facebook, and how advertisers and developers interact with the site. Peter leads a stakeholder engagement team that builds relationships with NGOs, academics, and other thought leaders, and that incorporates external feedback into Facebook’s product policy development process. Peter’s work puts him at the center of many current Internet policy issues -- including the scope of free expression, anti-bullying and -hate speech, countering violent extremism, and user trust. Prior to joining Facebook in 2014, Peter was a partner at the San Francisco law firm of Morrison & Foerster, where he specialized in international litigation and spent 11 years in his firm’s Tokyo office. His practice also included human rights litigation and counseling in the area of corporate social responsibility; from 2012-14 he served as Co-Chair of the International Bar Association's CSR Committee. He holds a B.A., summa cum laude, from Amherst College and an M.A. (History) and J.D. from the University of California, Berkeley.
