The future of digital monitoring in the European Union

April 26 14:00 UTC+1

The future of digital monitoring in the European Union

Legal compliance is increasingly becoming digital, and that is a fact. In shaping its digital future, in the past years, the European Union has been proposing one legal reform after another, such as the Digital Services Act (DSA) package or the AI Act. A common thread in these developments is the policy reflection on not only how to update or make new rules for digital markets, but also how to enforce them effectively. This has already been reflected in earlier instruments such as the Consumer Protection Cooperation (CPC) Regulation, or the Digital Market Surveillance Regulation. As indicated in the preamble of the latter, ‘[i]n the age of constant development of digital technologies, new solutions that could contribute to the effective market surveillance within the Union should be explored’. But what exactly is market surveillance in the digital age?

Dr. Catalian Goanta and Dr. Jerry Spanakis will address the topic in a hybrid ALTI. More specifically, they will discuss:

1. What are the biggest trends in digital monitoring in the EU at the moment;
2. What are the benefits and challenges of digital monitoring?
3. How can mechanisms of state and capitalist surveillance be avoided where not reasonable?
