At the World Interdisciplinary Network for Institutional Research (WINIR) conference the roundtable “ICT, open societies and new institutions” was organised.

In this roundtable the question ‘are platforms a new type of institution’ was raised by 3 experts in the field. We recorded the session and shared it on YouTube and Soundcloud. In this blog you can see all 3 contributions and the integral recording of the session, including the discussion between the panelists and the Q&A with the audience.

José van Dijck (Royal Netherlands Academy of Arts and Sciences) raised the question and context on ‘Do platforms bypass of replace institutions?’
