The role of platforms as gatekeepers of information and disinformation has become very important. During this CONNECT University session high-level speakers will discuss how successful was the implementation of the Code of Practice. The lecture will explore the issues of political ads transparency, scrutiny of ad placements, integrity of services, content ranking algorithms, access to data. Interactive talks will focus on how to ensure transparency of political activity on online platforms and how to arrange the access to platforms’ data for research purposes. Together with the representatives of online platforms, we will discuss approaches to secure the integrity of online services and the actions needed to empower platforms’ users.
