After a decade of turbulence in the media field caused by the rise of global platforms, the arbitrary decision to ban President Trump from Twitter and Facebook came as a telling example of the power of platforms, and served as a wake-up call for the rest of the world. In Europe, remedial policy to curb the excessive power of tech giants has gained new urgency, as has the search for alternative means of restoring a trusted public sphere. These efforts are reviewed and evaluated at Focus Session 4, with input from media- and content-related workshops held earlier during the 2021 EuroDIG. FS 4 will also examine media initiatives to counter disinformation and to (re)create a trusted public sphere in Europe. These initiatives address common standards and journalism ethics, cooperation among European public service media and reinvigorating grassroots media, among others.
