Mapping Social-Legal Systems of governance before the #DSA

Now that the DSA has been released, taking a more empirical perspective on content moderation seems ever more pressing. To this end, this author will look at concrete empirical data which can help understanding how socio-legal and socio-technical systems interact. The talk will thus be able to provide an empirical basis for discussing which parts of the DSA might be successful and which are more likely to fail.
