Background talk with Laureline Lemoine: DSA enforcement starts now – what changes can platform users expect?
The EU has been preparing to enforce the Digital Services Act (DSA) and now, the new rules for online platforms are being put to the test for the first time. Starting this month, the DSA’s provisions apply in their entirety to social media sites, video apps and search engines. The users of affected platforms are hoping for more control over what happens with their data, while researchers hope to have clearer rules allowing them to conduct research on exactly that data. Civil Society actors have expressed high expectations for the DSA to fulfill its promise of contributing to transparent and safe online spaces.
Expectations for the DSA are high. How can the EU meet these expectations? What will the DSA actually change for platform users, researchers and civil society? What is merely wishful thinking? We will discuss questions such as these with Laureline Lemoine on February 27, 2024, at 4:00pm CET. She is a senior associate at the law firm and consultancy AWO, which has worked on key issues around the DSA for years and supports a legal case against Meta’s data protection practices.
As part of the one-hour online event, you are welcome to participate in the discussion with your questions. The talk will be held in English.
