Rethinking Digital Platform Regulation: Challenges and Future Perspectives

DCU Law and Tech hosts and takes part in many events discussing research, publications, projects and key issues at play between Legislation and Technology.

11 - 14 June 2024

In the ever-evolving digital landscape, the regulation of digital platforms has emerged as a critical and intricate challenge that demands a multifaceted solution. As these platforms continue to shape the way we communicate, conduct business, and access information, a comprehensive understanding of their regulatory framework becomes paramount. In this context, the Summer School aims to provide a comprehensive and interdisciplinary examination of the legal implications associated with digital platforms. To this end, the lectures will be delivered not only by Law Professors but also by distinguished scholars from various scientific disciplines and researchers from the CNR (National Research Council).

The Summer School delves into emerging trends to anticipate future regulatory paradigms in this dynamic environment.

It is organized in the context of the European Master in Law, Data and Artificial Intelligence (EMILDAI), an international program offered by four partner universities (Dublin City University, Avignon Université, Universidad de León, and Università di Pisa), and it is funded by the Erasmus Mundus Joint Master program of the European Union.

Tuition fees are waived for students enrolled in the European Master in Law, Data and Artificial Intelligence (EMILDAI).

The program will be activated also in distance learning mode (TEAMS platform).


The purpose of this Summer School is to provide participants with a comprehensive understanding of key concepts and challenges related to the regulation of digital platforms. Through interdisciplinary discussions, expert insights, and practical exercises, the program aims to equip attendees with the knowledge and skills necessary to navigate the complex legal and ethical landscape of the digital platform ecosystem. It also allows participants to connect with peers, experts, and potential mentors, cultivating valuable relationships and collaborations in the EMILDAI Program and beyond.

Who can apply

In addition to EMILDAI students, the Summer School is open to students, professionals, and policymakers interested in the regulation of digital platforms.

It will also benefit Ph.D. students, researchers and academics in the field who are interested in deepening the relationship between Technology and Regulation.
