DSA Research Network

DSA Research Network

The EU Digital Services Act (DSA) regulation has ushered in a new era of regulatory challenges. The implementation of the new rules raises a number of complex questions that are the subject of controversial debate among academics, civil society and regulatory authorities: How can the right balance be struck between data protection and freedom of expression in the online world? Which groups can make what contribution? Some are in favor of stricter regulations, while others are concerned about restrictions on freedom of expression.
The DSA research network project brings together all stakeholders involved and establishes structures for joint cooperation. It will create a platform for reform proposals for the DSA, well before this is routinely done by the Commission and Parliament. Together with experts from all over Europe, the implementation of the Digital Services Act will be monitored and improved through various joint research and networking projects. Evidence-based research and transdisciplinary collaboration should enable well-founded decisions on the implementation of the legislation and future reforms.
The DSA Research Network is a collaboration between the Leibniz Institute for Media Research | Hans-Bredow-Institut (HBI), the Digital Services Act (DSA) Observatory of the Institute for Information Law (IViR) and the University of Amsterdam, the Alexander von Humboldt Institute for Internet and Society (HIIG) and the Network of Centers (NoC).
