Rationales for and viability of regulation of online platforms and social media”, held June 6, 2019. The event forms part of COMPACT’s stakeholder events series which aims at disseminating project output and providing a platform for debate on current challenges facing social media and convergence. The event was organized by DATA d.o.o and Jozef Stefan Institute.

Federica participated in the session dedicated to “Social aspects and human rights”. She presented some preliminary findings from the “Report on national courts, social media and convergence” which ELIAMEP is currently working on within the framework of the COMPACT project. Federica talked about the importance of courts as regards the evolution of the interpretation of the national laws vis-à-vis the slow pace of legislation in reacting to technological developments.
