Platform Policy Beyond Platform Determinism

Prof. Dr. Barbara Thomaß and Dr. Clara Iglesias Keller are participating in the conference of the Jean Monnet Network European Media and Platform Policies (EuromediApp).
At 9:30 a.m., Clara Iglesias Keller will give a lecture on "Before and After Disinformation: The Normative Framework for Platform Regulation in Brazil".
At 3:00 p.m., Clara Iglesias Keller will lead a workshop on "Process of Constitutionalisation of the Social Media Environment" and Barbara Thomaß will lead a parallel workshop on "The Platformization of the News Ecology".

About the Conference

This conference day focuses on the continuation of the debate about platform governance research launched at the First Annual Platform Governance Research Network Conference in the Spring of 2021. We define platform governance as a “private mediation between Internet content and the humans who provide and access this content” (DeNardis, 2012). The following questions will be addressed:

  • What are the challenges and opportunities regarding platform governance?
  • What is the impact of platform governance on journalistic work and diversity?
  • Which role(s) have policy makers to play in this context of platform governance?
  • Which role(s) have the Big Four tech companies to play in this context of platform governance?
  • What are the main issues that need to be included in future research about platform governance research?
You can find further informationen on the programme of the conference here.
