Save the Date ZOOM 2021: Regulation of Twitter, Facebook & Co. – possible or futile?

Status: Closed

Organisation: Deutsche Welle Akademie

Deadline: 17/11/2021

Location: Online

On 17th November 2021, Deutsche Welle will continue its series of events in cooperation with the Institute for Media Law and Communications Law at the University of Cologne.

What exactly will it be about? We would like to look at the following questions in particular with the participants: How is it possible to effectively regulate multinational corporations, most of which are based in non-European countries and belong to different legal cultures, and to enforce the regulations? Media intermediaries play a significant role in shaping public opinion – therefore, it is necessary to discuss the obligation of media intermediaries to provide a minimum of factual, balanced and pluralistic information while preserving freedom of expression and opinion.

Please note that the event will be in German.
