Columbia World Projects (CWP), with support from the John S. and James L. Knight Foundation, will bring together trans-Atlantic scholars, regulators, policymakers and civil society actors to research the implications of the European Union’s (EU) Digital Markets Act (DMA) and Digital Services Act (DSA).
The Regulating Our Digital Infrastructure in the Public Interest initiative will apply learnings to the development of nonpartisan policy options for US policymakers on regulation and governance of large digital platforms. Recommendations will be informed by the E.U. experience and the complexities of American political and legal context. Convenings, research, and deliberations will focus on two areas; digital markets, including antitrust efforts, interoperability, and taxation schemes; and digital content, including issues of curation, safety, and consent.
The groups’ work aims to coincide with the Digital Markets Act application timeline, with recommendations expected at the end of 2024.
Join us on Thursday, March 30 at 5:00 PM ET for a conversation, Regulating Big Tech: Lessons from Around the World.
