Forthcoming event: Platform Governance Workshop
What are the dominant narratives about digital platforms? What do they reveal about their creators and amplifiers? Who are they aimed at? Who or what do they leave out? What alternate stories could we tell?
The reach and power of digital platforms have triggered a multitude of attempts to study and govern them. Several assumptions, myths, and tropes are implicated, not all of which are universal, inclusive, or representative of specific regional or local contexts. As part of its Platform Futures program, Digital Asia Hub is keen to surface these contestations and frictions, towards building the capacity of emerging leaders in the Asia-Pacific region to engage with platform issues at the local and regional level in diverse ways.
The Platform Futures workshop will be held virtually and online across 3 weeks, from the 4th to the 20th of April. Participants will have the opportunity to hear from experts, engage in peer-to-peer learning, and develop critical skills.
