​Welche Rahmenbedingungen braucht die Meinungsbildung im Netz?

PD Dr. Matthias C. Kettemann and Thomas Fuchs, Director of the Media Authority Hamburg/Schleswig-Holstein (MA HSH), discuss the well-known question of regulation on the Internet, which has gained new topicality due to corona-related digitization in Germany. It is moderated by Dr. Kathrin Voss, consultant and lecturer at the University of Hamburg. The discussion is organised by the Friedrich-Ebert-Stiftung (FES).

The event will take place online. If you would like to participate, please register here by providing your e-mail address. You will receive a confirmation with the access information.

Free access to information on the Internet is now a matter of course. However, we have long been concerned with the dark sides of digital communication, such as hate comments, fake news and the control of our information by algorithms. In addition, the Internet has created an increasingly confusing media landscape that does not always reveal at first glance whether it is a serious news offering or the spread of conspiracy myths.

The old question of regulation on the net is therefore always relevant. This is especially true in the spring of 2020, when a new wave of digitisation has begun in Germany after the brakes were put on public life in the interests of health protection. Even before the corona pandemic, politicians recognised the problems and tried to shape the conditions for the digital public sphere with a number of new rules, i. e. the Network Enforcement Act, the EU copyright reform or the new State Media Treaty.

How do experts evaluate these rules after they have been introduced or their political discussion? How do you create legal frameworks for the digital public that both guarantee freedom and take action against abuse? What can national rules look like in an online world dominated by American corporations? We will discuss these and other questions in the first exclusively online discussion forum of our event series "Digital Public Sphere."
