This month we had a discussion with Dr. Hasnain Bokhari on the new EU Digital Service Act. We discuss the implications of the Act for tech companies and users in an international context, including taking policy steps for preserving the rights of the user regarding data protection as well as seeing the Act as a tool to safeguard democracies.
