Abstract

This article aims to evaluate recent events regarding social media governance in the BRICS (Brazil, Russia, India, China, and South Africa) countries, focusing on recent developments and highlighting common trends. With documental and literature review, we aim to analyse the most recent policies and institutional arrangements directly affecting what could be deemed a responsible social media platform. Furthermore, by looking at the selected developments in these countries, we aim to identify convergence and divergence between the BRICS country approaches, providing clarity on the existing and proposed regimes and contributing to the identification of viable paths forward that strike a balance between all interests involved.

Keywords: Platform regulation, cybersecurity, platform responsibilities, intermediary liability, BRICS, Brazil, Russia, India, China, South Africa
