Governing Conversations // Platform Governance: Equity and Accountability

Feb. 23, 2022
2:00PM - 3:00PM
Open to the Public

Register in advance for this webinar:

There is a crisis of accountability not just in platform governance in particular, but within platforms in general. Several waves of purported silver bullets, be they through technology, humanity, or ethics, have failed to bring about a true overhaul of the problematic systems in question, offering fleeting small victories instead. How does equity go beyond a performative structure? Can a different way of conceptualizing technology bring about a better environment? Do governance scholars have a responsibility for previous failures?
