This debate will focus on discussing diverse perspectives on the Commission’s proposal for a Digital Services Act and how to best create a comprehensive, workable and effective set of rules for digital services in Europe.

Panelists will present their views and debate some of the key provisions of the DSA: how to best create a harmonized framework to tackle illegal content while protecting users’ fundamental rights online? What will be the subsequent impact of the proposed obligations on companies operating in a diverse digital ecosystem? How to ensure effective cross-border application of the new rules?

The event will aim at generating a lively discussion on the opportunities and the challenges of this important reform for a safer, more innovative, and more open online environment.
