Not one person this week but the group of people who have organised the First Annual Conference of The Platform Governance Research Network, a free online event taking place between March 24-26 about, you guessed it, platform governance.
25 event organisers from 15 collaborating institutions, from Berlin to Bengaluru, have put together 12 sessions on everything from under-studied platforms to governing toxicity. Check the full programme here
(or in threaded form
) and consider signing up.
The most exciting part, for me, is the time set aside on day 3 to discuss creating a platform governance research network (which apparently doesn’t exist right now). Better connections between scholars and civil society professionals can only be a good thing.
