Promote the need for sincere information for a democracy based on trust

This report presents a critical view of the Digital Services Act, a directive by the European Union to regulate digital platforms.

How has the delicate yet necessary balance between freedom of expression, often described as the “cornerstone” of democracy, and the repression of its abuses been designed into the law?

This report, commissioned by the European Parliament, provides a summary of the legislation in place at the European level to regulate digital platforms. The report recommends, among other things, that current legislations give more authority to national institutions so as to facilitate regulatory procedures.

Although this Code has been, according to the report, a “valuable instrument” in the fight against disinformation, the document mostly highlights its limitations and shortcomings, “mainly due to the Code’s self-regulatory nature.”

The Forum on Information and Democracy's report offers recommendations on how to respond to the information chaos present online.
