Law of the Land or Law of the Platform? Beware of the Privatisation of Regulation and Police

Luca Belli, Pedro Augusto Francisco and Nicolo Zingales

"Susan Strange's concept of "structural power" (Strange,1988) is useful to describe very well the capability of private entities to shape frameworks within which (natural or legal) persons relate to each other. For a discussion of how such concept can be applied to internet intermediaries, see Horten (2016)."
