NGTC faculty member Kyle Langvardt joined a panel of expert's at Stanford Law School's Digital Platform Governance Symposium to discuss "Content Moderation, Free Speech and Misinformation." The symposium covered two evolving areas of platform regulation. First, it considered ways to manage content moderation on platforms, with a focus on striking a balance between freedom of speech and the risk of misinformation. Second, the symposium examined how platform governance intersects with privacy and surveillance.
