State, corporation, people: the global dimensions of tech regulation

A conversation with Josh Simons and Kyra Jasper

They return! Kyra Jasper and Josh Simons are back, this time to discuss the global dimensions of tech regulation. In this episode, we look at three case studies: Google and Facebook’s reaction to Australia’s new media law, Facebook’s role in Myanmar (during a coup and a genocide), and Twitter, Facebook and India’s censorship laws. What can these cases tell us about the nexus between states, corporations and people across the world?
