Regulating Social Media

Regulating Social Media is a research project being undertaken by WebRoots Democracy which will be exploring potential reforms to how social media platforms are regulated by the state.

It will begin in late April 2018 and has kindly received initial funding from the Andrew Wainwright Reform Trust.

Kinder, Gentler Politics

Kinder, Gentler Politics is the first report of the Regulating Social Media project. For this report, WebRoots Democracy is undertaking research on the online abuse of individuals working in the political sphere. This includes politicians, candidates, campaigners, activists, and journalists. The report will explore the current landscape and will recommend new policy ideas to help tackle the rise of harmful and damaging online abuse in UK politics.
