Podcast: Marietje Schaake on EU efforts to regulate Big Tech

European Commission vice-president Margrethe Vestager speaks during a news conference on regulation on high performance computing.

In the latest episode of Lawfare‘s Arbiters of Truth series on disinformation, Evelyn Douek and Quinta Jurecic sit down with Marietje Schaake, a former member of the European Parliament and the current international policy director at Stanford University’s Cyber Policy Center. With the United States acting slowly on regulating major technology companies, European regulators are moving ahead with writing fresh rules for Big Tech. Here, Schaake discusses how European officials are approaching tech regulation and whether the differences in U.S. and European approaches might be bridged under a Biden administration.
