While these platforms have transformed communication and information exchange to enable democratic debate, they have also created environments where harassment, disinformation, hate-speech and extremism thrive," sys advance publicity.

"Considering recent controversies related to freedom of expression online, legal and regulatory concerns about how social media companies should act and behave have risen to the top of the agenda for policy makers.

Speakers will be Lubos Kuklis (Board Member at the European Regulators Group for Audiovisual Media Services) and Felix Kartte (Senior Advisor at Reset) in a discussion moderated by Sanda Svetoka, NATO StratCom COE.

The event takes place online on February 24 at 16:00 Rīga time (GMT +2) on both Facebook and YouTube.
