Essay on informal regulation published as part of CIGI collection

I contributed an essay to a great new series put together by the Centre for International Governance Innovation (CIGI), and edited by Taylor Owen.

My piece builds on arguments made in my IPR article, arguing that we need to pay more attention to how content regulation is increasingly shaped through backroom deals, informal codes of conduct and other voluntary governance mechanisms.

I also wrote a short introduction summarizing and discussing the ‘platform governance’ concept.

It’s all part of a collection bringing together 16 beautifully illustrated essays with various interpretations and models for global platform governance, including social media councils, moderation standards boards, media regulators, and other proposals.

It’s all available at CIGI’s page.
