Platform Politick: Redefining Digital Rights for the Platform Generation

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

Our panel seeks to engage with the multiple policy challenges that the platform economy presents for rights –whether they be the labor rights of workers, consumer rights of the user, the political and data rights of the citizen, the collective rights of marginalized communities, or the right to development and equitable trade for countries at the margins of capitalism. Through the session we will examine the economic and social outcomes of platformization and what they mean for the larger questions of openness, diversity and inclusion.
