We are pleased to invite you to participate in the next webinar hosted by the Centrist Democrat International (CDI-IDC) titled: “Freedom of expression and content moderation online: a challenging balance to strike” scheduled to take place as a Zoom video conference on Thursday, 27 May 2021, at 17:00 (CET). The event will last one hour. The recent decision by several social media platforms to ban profiles of important political leaders, parties and public figures has fueled the discussion on the role of Big Tech. On the one hand, those who pointed at the limitless power of platforms, which should not be able to ultimately decide what is good and what is not. On the other, those who supported Big Tech’s decision, in the name of extraordinary measures for extraordinary circumstances. The presentation of the Digital Services Package (Digital Services Act and Digital Markets Act) is putting the European Union at the forefront of the attempt to address the issues of content moderation and gatekeeper role of big platforms. Therefore, the eventshould trigger a broader discussion on the subject with a focus on EU approach to digital regulation.
The event will be streamed on CDI-IDC website (www.idc-cdi.com), and on our Facebook and Youtube platform.
We would be delighted to have you in our webinar and contribute to this important debate.
