Roundtable on The Regulation of Online Platforms

Activity: Organizing, contributing or attending an eventOrganizing or contributing to an eventAcademic


The objective is to foster discussion on a societally relevant and controversial topic, namely the regulation of online platforms or service providers that are currently being discussed by the European Commission. We aim looking at this phenomenon holistically. In particular, the Digital Services Act provides new draft rules for e-commerce, among others with a goal to increase transparency for consumers. The recently Digital Single Market Directive has added a new liability regime for online service providers that host copyright infringing material. In addition, non-personal data regulation and the role online platforms in that context are highly relevant. Our goal is to generate ideas, filter out the best and discuss ways to implement them.

The format of the roundtable is informal, taking the shape of a debate where participants come together to reach a solution, in a dialogue with each other and the audience. Our panelists consist of 4 bachelor students (3rd year) from the course Intellectual Property and the Digital Single Market, Prof. Noam Shemtov (Queen Mary University of London), Dr. Caroline Caufmann, Dr. Catalina Goanta and Dr. Kalpana Tyagi. Dr. Anke Moerland will be chairing the roundtable
