Big Tech under control?

  • Facebook, Google and Co. between radicalization and regulation
  • Josephine Ballon, Bijan Kaffenberger, Erik Tuchtfeld & Maria Teresia Weber
  • In dialogue

Ever since blocks on social media like Telegram have been discussed politically, it has been clear that hate and agitation do not simply disappear on the Internet. Digital service providers seem to tolerate certain forms because it increases usage times. Does government regulation need to be rethought? Are the tech corporations capable of learning, also in terms of business models? Is it utopia for users themselves to bring about more, for example through platform councils?

Josephine Ballon, lawyer and since 2019 Head of Legal at HateAid – gegen Hass im Netz, Berlin
Bijan Kaffenberger, Member of the State Parliament and digital policy spokesman for the SPD parliamentary group, Hesse
Erik Tuchtfeld, research associate at MPIL in Heidelberg and board member at D64 – Center for Digital Progress
Maria Teresia Weber, lawyer and public policy manager at Facebook Germany, Berlin

Moderation: N.N.
