Meeting to launch book on online content moderation and regulatory perspectives

Fundação Getulio Vargas’ Rio de Janeiro Law School is holding an event to launch a book called ​“Moderação de conteúdo online: contexto, cenário brasileiro e suas perspectivas regulatórias” (“Online Content Moderation: Context, Brazilian Situation and Regulatory Perspectives”). The meeting will take place in hybrid form, on February 13, at 3:30 pm, in FGV’s main building (Praia de Botafogo, 190, 12th floor, Botafogo, Rio de Janeiro), and livestreamed on FGV’s YouTube channel.

The book presents the results of a survey carried out by the FGV Rio de Janeiro Law School’s Center for Technology and Society (CTS), involving key stakeholders in the executive, legislature, judiciary, media and academia, regarding their roles in this context, as well as recent international discussion on this subject.

During the book launch, there will be a debate with representatives of academia, civil society, the private sector and government, to address major challenges and dilemmas in the regulation of social media platforms.

This debate will feature Professor Yasmin Curzi of CTS; Professor Nicolo Zingales of CTS; Ivar Hartmann of Insper, a higher education institute in Sao Paulo; Margareth Kang, public policy manager at Meta; Luiz Moncau, public policy manager at Google; lawyer Flavia Lefèvre; Estela Aranha, special advisor on digital rights at the Justice Ministry; and Professor Luca Belli, CTS’ coordinator.

Through various articles, the book shows how since the approval of the Internet Civil Framework, there have been multiple initiatives to review mechanisms and criteria for moderating online content. In this context, investigations carried out by government bodies into online fraud and harmful speech stand out and they are relevant to the judiciary’s role in resolving conflicting rights.
