Platform Governance


My current main focus (and the subject of my dissertation) is ‘platform governance’, a wide-ranging concept that I’ve tried to define and articulate conceptually in recent articles. I’m particularly interested in the political side of platform governance, which I see as the contested interaction between various interests and actors seeking to exert their influence over platform policies and behaviour. In my dissertation, I focus on intermediary liability regulation (both soft ‘co-regulation,’ as well laws passed at the national and EU levels), but am also interested in competition, data protection, and other increasingly-intertwined policy areas.
