Meinungsvielfalt sichern – Medienrechtliche Aspekte der Plattformregulierung

Dr. Jan-Hinrik Schmidt has been invited as an expert on "Ranking und Relevanz – Was bedeuten algorithmische Selektionsmechanismen für die Medien- und Meinungsvielfalt? [Ranking and Relevance - What Do Algorithmic Selection Mechanisms Mean for Media and Opinion Diversity]" to the expert discussion of the "Bündnis 90/Die Grünen" parliamentary group in the Bundestag starting at 3 pm.

That Is What It Is All About

Digital platforms are increasingly in the focus of legislators' attention. Today, hardly anyone denies that there is a need to regulate social networks, telemedia and other providers of digital infrastructure.
 
However, the debate on the regulation of the platform economy has so far been dominated by competition law aspects. Aspects of media law only play a marginal role, although platforms are also playing an increasingly important role in the way social debates take place, i.e. for the democratic public. The so-called information intermediaries are not media providers in the traditional sense such as magazine publishers or broadcasters. However, some of them have acquired a significance for the provision of basic information that is comparable to that of traditional gatekeepers on the media market.
 
What influence, for example, do personalised news feeds have on public opinion and decision-making because of algorithms? How exactly the power of opinion can be measured in digital environments is still largely unclear. What principles must regulation follow that is not aimed at limiting market power, but at safeguarding diversity of opinion?
 
The “Bündnis 90/Die Grünen" parliamentary group in the Bundestag would like to discuss these questions with experts from science, economy and civil society - and with all interested parties!
