Platforms regulations – policy challenge for civil society advocates

This workshop will focus on the role of civil society to influence public policy regarding platforms – what are the challenges they face, what should they stand for. 

The main goal is to map out cases when digital platforms interfere with our fundamental rights online – what areas of platforms activities shall be fundamental rights-proof (e.g. algorithmic decision making, transparency, content takedown). The workshop aims to have a closer look at certain answers on such situations on international, European and national levels (e.g. anti-terrorism laws, an interesting example of MoU between Fb and Polish government).

The goal of the workshop is also to frame a discourse on platforms regulation using more values-oriented narrative, not only economic-based arguments.

This workshop will be highly participatory, based on groups work, brainstorming and other forms of active methods and will be also a great opportunity for participants of Privacy Camp to get to know each other.

Workshop Facilitators:

  • Natalia Mileszyk, Public Policy Specialist, Centrum Cyfrowe
  • Rocco Bellanova, Post-Doctoral Researcher at the University of Amsterdam (UvA) and Visiting Lecturer at the Université Saint-Louis – Bruxelles (USL-B
