2019 Conference on New Media and Democracy: Panel 4

As governments across the world come to terms with the negative effects of social media on their citizens and states, many alternative models of governance are beginning to emerge. What are the various models that governments can choose from at the moment? How plausible is the emergence of a common global governance structure? How do emerging regulatory landscapes and compliance standards impact the way platforms operate?
