Freedom. Internet. A new opening? - view of Michal Boni (advisor DigEnlight)

FREEDOM OF SPEECH, DIGITAL RIGHTS, FIRESIDE CHATS

It was an excellent idea more than half year ago to start with Fireside Chats for young scientists and students from various European universities. It was possible due to the Digital Enlightenment Forum inspiration and openness for different kinds of activities. The Fireside Chats are the good platform and opportunity for exchange of views on many aspects of digital development from the functioning of the AI, via challenges addressed to the democracy threats to the issue of digital rights.

Looking forward you can see many interesting and inspiring topics for the debates.

I am leading the course focused on digital rights, which is crucial for the socially inclusive digital development, and first of all based on the trust and full respect to the fundamental rights. In Europe, we are discussing now about the Digital Services Act and Data Governance challenges - key for the adequate protection of our rights as citizens and consumers ( users and patients). The freedom of speech is one of the most important issue, but at the same time platforms’ responsibilities appeared as a necessary requirement and tool in the time of hate-speech and disinformation.

It is my view on some dimensions of this debate in this paper: FREEDOM. INTERNET. A NEW OPENING ?
