Wer bestimmt, was man online sagen darf?

Prof. Dr. Matthias C. Kettemann and Katharina Mosene hold two workshops as part of the national initiative "Digitaltag" [Digital Day].

In his workshop on the rules of the internet, Prof. Dr. Matthias C. Kettemann raises the question of who determines what you are allowed to say online. In a presentation followed by a discussion, he explains the complicated entanglements of legal and internal platform regulations that apply on the internet.
Who Determines What Can Be Said Online? Disinformation, Hate Speech and Shitstorms between Platforms, Users and the State
Does the law apply on the internet? Of course it does! But which law? The law of the state? Or the rules of the platforms? Can they simply kick out users and decide for themselves what can be said online? And if platforms don't moderate well enough and allow hate speech and murder plots - what is the state to do then? The workshop deals with the question of which rules apply on the internet, what works well and what needs to be changed so that the internet remains a space of freedom in which democratic discourse processes take place that strengthen the rule of law.

Time: 11:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m.
Location: Online
Registration: by email to Matthias C. Kettemann.

Katharina Mosene will talk in her workshop about how we can digitally counter anti-democratic statements on the net.
Countering Anti-Democratic Statements on the Internet Digitally - First Steps in Dealing with Hate Speech
Political engagement on the internet is often met with resistance. Especially women who stand up for democratic values and women's issues on the internet are often confronted with anti-democratic, racist and even sexist statements. In her workshop, Katharina Mosene shows first steps on how to recognise (digital) hate speech, who is particularly affected and how to counter this form of digital violence. What is digital violence? Who is particularly affected and what possibilities do we have to fight against it individually and socially?
Time: 7:00 p.m. to 8:30 p.m.
Location: Online

The Digitaltag is a nationwide day of action for digital participation. It is intended to make digitisation an everyday experience for all citizens with numerous activities. All over Germany, people come together at various events to discover digital technologies and get to know them better.
The initiative „Digital für alle” [Digital for All] has launched the Digitaltag. The alliance brings together more than 25 organisations from civil society, culture, science, business, welfare and the public sector.
