Event details

The shape and content of the Online Safety Bill (OSB) has generated discussion amongst policy specialists, stakeholders and lobbyists in key services and sectors, political advisors and appointed representatives, and academics and researchers – as well as a general public interested in what the OSB will mean for people made vulnerable or at risk of harms online.

As the OSB reaches the final stages of approval through the UK government, this event will provide a response, highlighting the voices and perspectives of those invested in ensuring a vibrant, equal, inclusive, and safe digital society can flourish. Speakers will include those whose work has had an impact on the OSB, either through policy work or government roles, and academics whose research has significantly shaped the nature of the discussion.

The event will also see the launch of the report ‘Postdigital Intimacies for Online Safety’, a collaborative and co-produced commentary on the OSB and future directions. Contributions to the report are included from: BAM Construction, Big Health, Bumble, Carnegie, ChilyPep, Men’s Health Forum, Men’s Craft, National Autistic Society, ORCHA, Revenge Porn Helpline, Samaritans, Suzy Lamplugh Trust, SWGfL, and TechUK.

At the close of the programme, please join us for a wine reception and networking.

Jointly funded by the AHRC Postdigital Intimacies Network and the Research Excellence Development Fund, Research England.
