Kann Medienrecht den gesellschaftlichen Zusammenhalt fördern?

How do rules for (better) digital communication emerge for tomorrow's society? PD Dr. Jan-Hinrik Schmidt, Amélie Pia Heldt and Prof. Dr. Wolfgang Schulz will pursue this question from the perspective of the Research Institute Social Cohesion (Hamburg Sub-Institute) and Thomas Fuchs from MA HSH - in a compact and digital format at this year's Hamburg Media Symposium, jointly organised with the Hamburg Chamber of Commerce and the Medienanstalt Hamburg / Schleswig-Holstein [Media Authority Hamburg / Schleswig-Holstein].
When: 27 May 2021, 1:00 p.m. - 2.30 p.m.
Where: via Zoom (dial-in details will be emailed shortly before the event)
How: after registration
Public communication is important for social cohesion: it draws the attention of many to socially relevant issues and thus promotes a shared knowledge base. It provides settings for the exchange of arguments and debates, which in the best case are constructive and agreement-oriented. It provides an insight into the diversity of lifestyles and worldviews that can go beyond our everyday experiences in our own environment.
Digital media are fundamentally changing the structures and dynamics of public communication. This also has implications for social cohesion that are not clear-cut from the outset: We can establish and maintain social relationships across spatial distances more easily than ever before - and at the same time fear the fragmentation of society into echo chambers and identity enclaves. We are pleased that the barriers to participation in democratic discourse are falling - and at the same time suffer from the increase in hate speech, shit storms and other forms of destructive communication. We benefit from rapid innovations in media technology that make our lives easier - and at the same time buy this with a comprehensive storage of data on all aspects of our lives.
How can media law respond to these developments?
The German State Media Treaty, which came into force in November 2020, no longer only targets broadcasting, but also focuses on platforms and media intermediaries. With DSA and DMA, the EU has presented proposals for a holistic approach to digital regulation. However, is all of this enough? Which media law instruments are suitable for the present and the future? How will rules be created for (better) digital communication in tomorrow's society?
