Big Tech is with us - Die Rolle und Einfluss von Social Media vor der #BTW21

Panel Discussion

In its podcast series on the 2021 German federal election, the "Alliance of Democracies" takes a look at the role of social media platforms. Where do difficulties remain in dealing with disinformation? What opportunities and challenges does online political advertising present? What regulatory measures have Germany and the EU taken or are planning?

Julian Jaursch, SNV project director on "Strengthening the Digital Public Sphere", discussed these issues with host Olaf Böhnke as well as the other guests Renate Nikolay, head of the cabinet of Vice President of the European Commission Věra Jourová, Johanne Kübler, researcher at the Sustainable Computing Lab at the Vienna University of Economics and Business Administration and Michael Meyer-Resende, director of Democracy Reporting International.

The podcast, a recording of the panel discussion from September 15, 2021, can be found on Spotify (in German).
