Torben Klausa is a doctoral student at the Faculty of Law at Bielefeld University and a visiting researcher at the Social Science Research Center Berlin, In May 2022 he was also Fellow at the Leibniz Institute for Media Research │ Hans-Bredow-Institut (HBI).

Does the state have a responsibility to regulate digital platforms? This question is at the heart of Torben Klausa's research. In his doctoral thesis "Die dienende Freiheit sozialer Netzwerke" [The Serving Freedom of Social Networks], Torben examines the potential constitutional duty of the state to contain social networks under media law.

He studied law, political science, and public policy in Bonn, Washington, D.C., and Berlin and has worked in the German Bundestag and the digital association Bitkom on digital policy challenges.

As a journalist for the German daily newspaper Der Tagesspiegel, he also reports on digital policy issues.
