Strategic advisor of the Academy participated in the NATO StratCom Talks on Social Media Platform Regulation on February 24
Social media have emerged as dominant global platforms for both private and political discourse. While these platforms have transformed communication and information exchange to enable democratic debate, they have also created environments where harassment, disinformation, hate-speech and extremism thrive.
Considering recent controversies related to freedom of expression online, legal and regulatory concerns about how social media companies should act and behave have risen to the top of the agenda for policy makers.
These issues were discussed at the NATO StratCom platform with two distinguished experts who provided their take on why, how, in what way, and by whom social media platforms could or should be regulated. Speakers: Lubos Kuklis (Board Member at the European Regulators Group for Audiovisual Media Services) and Felix Kartte (Senior Advisor at Reset)
