Platforms and Online Content

Online platforms are an essential part of the modern-day economic and social activities. After the measures taken against the Covid-19 pandemic all over the world, they became even more crucial for the daily lives of people living in countries with widespread internet connection. Given this ever-increasing role, online platforms raise challenging questions concerning governance and regulation. In fact, addressing the problems such as dissemination of false, hateful, manipulative, or criminal content, and tackling unfair economic practices are pressing priorities for policy makers.  

In this dossier, the Chair investigates the issues relating to the governance and regulation of online platforms by looking into the legislative proposals, public policies, administrative and judicial decisions surrounding them.
