Media & content
Modern societies face an increasingly digital, mobile and social media environment, which provides users with ever more information from ever more sources.The freedom, diversity, and ability of news media to enable democracy depend on the institutional structure of individual countries’ media environment. Today, these media environments are changing in part as a result of technological and market developments largely associated with the rise of digital media. Media and information literacy is the main tools for empowering people, communities, and nations to participate in and contribute to global knowledge societies.

Security & crime
Childhood is a sensitive area of growing up and children are a vulnerable group. Nevertheless kids have the right to take part and to participate in the internet and digital environments. Therefor it is necessary to create safe online experiences. This is possible by media literacy on one hand and through secure services on the other hand. In this context the European Commission is working on several proposal or legal acts to achive this goal (Digital Services Act, Directive on measures for a high common level of cybersecurity across the Union (NIS2 Directive), Regulation to prevent and combat child sexual abuse, ...) Against this backdrop it seems to be meaningful to discuss current issues of safety and security with a focus on children´s rights.

Development of IG ecosystem | Human rights & privacy | Security & crime
Artificial intelligence, and specifically systems capable of automatically generating text, constitute a field of research that has recently experienced a boom and is currently undergoing regulation. One of the objectives that lawmakers are advocating for is the implementation of watermarks on generated content to ensure its ongoing identification. However, this proves to be very challenging from a technical standpoint, and the scientific community has demonstrated that developing a system guaranteeing effective watermarking is entirely impossible. In essence, despite the call for the implementation of watermarks in generated content, these watermarks can always be circumvented, leaving us powerless to address the issue. This matter raises numerous important and complex questions: How can we establish a robust regulatory framework around this issue? Are there viable alternatives for implementation? Should we consider further limitations on the advancement of these systems? What potential effects might arise for the general public?
