How to fight against infodemics?
Who should turn off the power?
What democratic control for the platforms?
After the publication of our 250 concrete recommendations on how to fight infodemics and as public attention on content moderation on social media platforms intensifies and at a time when the Digital Services Act is being discussed in Europe, the reform of Section 230 in the US and the Harms Bill in the UK, the Forum on Information and Democracy brings together experts and representatives of Parliament for this discussion on regulation, co-regulation and/or self-regulation measures that should be a priority in the fight against online infodemics today.
