The HBI at the re:publica 2023 – Presentations on YouTube

The HBI was represented at the 17th edition of re:publica with two presentations and a panel discussion. Some of the contributions were recorded and are now available on the event's YouTube channel.
On the first day of the conference, our PhD students Josefa Francke and Jan Rau introduced research on online right-wing extremism. They gave an overview of the state of research on the digital infrastructure of right-wing extremism as well as on interventions and countermeasures. What dangers are we confronted with? What can law and courts do? What is happening in prevention work?


On the third day of the conference, Christina Dinar and Fabian Wiedel explained in their presentation how "digital streetwork" works and asked to what extent it could solve social media problems. Matthias C. Kettemann took part in the panel discussion on "Geht’s nur ums Geld? Wie wir das Metaverse demokratischer machen können" [Is It All About Money? How We Can Make the Metaverse More Democratic]. In a moderated discussion, experts from the fields of law, philosophy and design deconstructed the futures of the metaverse in its economic, legal, social, and cultural dimensions. They explored the questions: Who designs for whom? Which ideas of the future are transformed into code? How can rules be better designed in these new communication spaces? Where do the data, raw materials, labour come from - and how can they be managed fairly?
