The forthcoming Digital Services Act (DSA) will update the Union’s decades-old e-Commerce Directive. While there is broad agreement about the need to update the EU’s regulatory framework of internet governance, the devil is in the detail, as developments in member states indicate there are differing national/regional approaches about which priorities an effective internet governance regulation should address first.

This Policy Dialogue aims to discuss national and regional views among EU member states regarding the delivery of the Digital Services Act, in order to clarify where their views converge or or diverge from the Commission’s overall approach. In this context, speakers will discuss the various positions and developments at member state level, such as Germany’s NetzDG, France’s Avia law, as well as the d9+ and Visegrád 4 positions. Identifying and clarifying the overlaps between the different member states’ positions would bring a unique dimension to the EU-focused debate in Brussels, and could help the Commission to draft a regulation that can foster integration and regulatory consistency among EU member states.
