Working title: Deep dive: Platform Regulation
Platform regulation has become one of the hotly debated topics of the recent years. In December 2020, the European Commission introduced two drafts that claim to bring major changes to platform governance - Digital Services Act and Digital Markets Act. During this session, together with the key contributors, YOUthDIG participants will discuss these proposed amendments, the challenges they pose and the opportunities they present. Do these proposals strike a fair balance between human rights and freedom to conduct business? Do they contribute to enhancement of more transparent content moderation practices? What have the reactions been so far? What is the way forward?
This session is envisaged to be an interactive panel discussion.
