In 2019, the European Commission launched the process for the adoption of new media legislation: the so-called Digital Services Act package (DSA). This package comprises two new regulation proposals – the Digital Services Act (DSA) and the Digital Markets Act (DMA). Both were published on 15 December 2020 and aim at modernising the current legal framework for digital services.

In the first half of 2021 and at a key point in the discussions on this new legislative framework, the European Audiovisual Observatory organised a series of five webinars dealing with topics directly affected by this new proposed legislation. Now, in the second half of 2021, the Strasbourg-based Observatory, part of the Council of Europe, presents a new report drawing partly on the substance of these webinars: Unravelling the Digital Services Package.

This new report is divided into two main areas: one focusing on the DSA and the other on the DMA, each of them divided in two parts.
