In January the European Parliament is voting upon DSA & DMA which is considered one of the biggest legislative attempts to coordinate EU rules for digital markets and services. Both of these are essential because they will give people more control over what they see online. Given its importance, we will be looking at the topic of digitalisation through different lenses, by asking different experts’ for diverse opinions regarding the matter and will share it with you in our upcoming events, video summaries, and publications. To kick start, check out the video about the ‘Brussels Effect’ Digitalisation and the Future of Transatlantic Relations below, and if interested you can read the full publication by the Head of Policy and Research at ELF Antonios Nestoras.
