The Internet: to regulate or not to regulate? Christian Fuchs presents evidence to Parliamentary inquiry
Christian Fuchs has presented evidence to a new Parliamentary Committee that seeks to explore how the regulation of the internet should be improved, including through better self-regulation and governance, and whether a new regulatory framework for the internet is necessary or whether the general law of the UK is adequate. This inquiry is considering whether online platforms which mediate individuals’ use of the internet have sufficient accountability and transparency, adequate governance and provide effective behavioural standards for users.”
Evidence has been presented to the committee by a number of scholars and institutions ahead of their initial meetings. The full set of evidence can be read on the UK Parliament website. The evidence presented by Prof. Fuchs is outlined below.
