In this seminar, Dr. Tréguer situates the EU Digital Services Act and the wider European debate on content take-down in the long history of media censorship. By taking a Foucaldian stance to historicise various “economies of power” in regulating media industries, he looks at the strategies of the French government in ongoing debates on intermediary liability, interpreting them as attempts to entrench securitarian modes of censorship that blur key political distinctions upon which the rule of law depends.
