Law and Change: Social Media

Date: 22nd October 2021

Time: 10.00 - 12.00 UK time

Venue: Online



Event Details

The British Institute for International and Comparative Law (BIICL) is collaborating with the Center for AI and Data Governance (CAIDG) of the Singapore Management University on a series of webinars on 'Law and Change'. Law and Change is a series designed to discuss how global crises are changing law and how law and legal services can assist in the orderly management of global change

This event will be looking at the topic of social media, with a particular interest in issues like safe digital space and the protection of personal data integrity. COVID has forced most of the world into a relationship with social media even more dependent than in days before. Yet the regulation of personal data access (and the re-use of such data) has had little advancement in terms of legal or state-centred regulation beyond broad parries at anti competitive practices. In addition, the extent to which social media has generated digital communities, especially for the young, in which law has made little inroads is worthy of critical review.

The whistle-blower revelations concerning Facebook and its knowledge of harmful content being tolerated and hate festered on its platform has shifted the regulatory climate away from ethics alone.

The 'Law and Change: Social Media' webinar is organised by Eva Lein, Director of the Centre of Comparative Law of BIICL, and Mark Findlay, Director of the CAIDG.
