Content moderation at the age of DSA

The new European Digital Services Act provides an ambitious regulatory framework to face the digital transformation of the public space. The Act defines new obligations for digital platforms and aims to make the moderation policies of large online platforms more transparent and accountable. Is this new regulatory framework appropriate to solve the digital information disorder? The circulation of fake news, hate speech and the algorithmic amplification of unreliable content have deeply damaged the quality of public discussion. This conference aims to put into perspective the new environment the DSA is about to set up in the European context by bringing together researchers, regulatory actors and representatives of digital platforms.
