The emerging regulatory framework for algorithmic decision making in the media
Partners: University of Amsterdam & Utrecht University
These are exciting times for information law. Europe is a space of ambitious regulatory experimentation to discipline the power of large social media companies and create the conditions for fair competition and diverse media markets. Regulations such as the Digital Services Act, the Digital Markets Act or the Data Act must together ensure that the key technologies that power the algorithmic society, such as automated content moderation and recommendation algorithms, will respect fundamental rights and public values. Now is a unique moment in time to study how the emerging regulatory framework will organise a complex web of societal stakeholders and hold powerful technology players to account for the societal risks their technologies create. The overall goal of this project is to study the role that the new regulatory framework has in realising public values and influencing the power dynamics in the overall media ecology.
