Social media platforms have become integral democratic infrastructure. However, such online platforms and their algorithmic functions may cause serious harm to our democracies and public debate. Hate speech online may lead certain groups in society to withdraw from public debate, and the spread of mis- and disinformation threatens open and factual democratic debate and can fuel polarisation. The vision of the Nordic Think Tank for Tech and Democracy for the Nordics is to be a united tech-democratic region, with thriving citizens and open and informed public debate taking place across different spaces and with vigilant public oversight over democratic infrastructure, building resilience to already strong Nordic public spheres. The Nordic Think Tank for Tech and Democracy proposes the following recommendations to protect and strengthen the democratic debate in the age of Big Tech.
