DECA at EuroDIG
DECA researchers contributed to the European Dialogue on Internet Governance EuroDIG organized in Tampere and online, 19-21 June 2023. The conference theme is “Internet in troubled times: risks, resilience, hope”.
The session Platforms as critical infrastructure for democratic discourse focused on the challenges that platformization poses for democratic societies as well as different alternatives and initiatives. Outi Puukko presented the recently published Nordic report and reflected on her research on internet/digital rights declarations.
The panel Digital information literacy as a modern civic skill – a Finnish perspective featured two projects of the Strategic Research Council – CRITICAL and DECA – as well as two DECA’s partners Faktabaari and SITRA. The participants discussed principles, practices, and policies of media and information literacy in Finland, as well as related challenges. In addition, the concept of digital information literacy (see also DECA's report on related stakeholder discussion, in Finnish) was introduced.
