Join the Justice Collaboratory and ISP for a lunch talk with Mike Godwin on Wednesday, November 13, 2019 at noon in Baker Hall, Room 420 for "What's Broken About Social Media and Tech Companies, And How Do We Fix Them".

Mike Godwin is an internet law and policy expert and former legal counsel at Wikimedia and Electronic Frontier Foundation. He will discuss a move toward a consensus about what we think social media companies have done wrong in governing their users and their affairs and then look at comprehensive, holistic ways not only to steer the companies into better behavior but also to rebuild a positive relationship with the public (and the users of social media platforms) and with policymakers and lawmakers. In this round table, we will discuss the potential strategies to solve the problems social media companies and tech corporations are facing and enhance their legitimacy.
