Chris Chapman, the President of the IIC, was asked yesterday by a journalist from the Sydney Morning Herald his views on Twitter, Facebook and Instagram banning President Trump.

He responded with this:

“This debate around blocking Trump and the evolving responsibilities (or otherwise) of dominant social media platforms more generally is just one of thousands of examples of the failure of all principal legislation to be ‘fit for purpose’ in this post-digital age. The old analogue constructs are broken – their rewriting needs a complete overhaul by the legislature from 1st principles. Against that reality and benchmark, measures considered and taken in splendid isolation are mere ‘First Aid’ stations. To the contrary, society needs deep, considered, collaborative, cohesive, ‘stitched up’ public policy: who’s up for that?”

The IIC is the pre-eminent global platform for policy-makers, regulators, industry players and academia to come together to debate, discuss and advance discussion on what those deep, considered, collaborative, cohesive, ‘stitched up’ public policies should be.
