Carnegie UK worked for over four years to develop and promote a systemic, risk-based approach to regulation to tackle online harm in the UK and has influenced the development of the UK’s Online Safety Act. This programme of work came to an end in October 2023. However, our former associates Maeve Walsh and Professor Lorna Woods have continued to work on the implementation of the Online Safety Act. To get in touch with them, or find more about this work, please visit their website. To keep up with the latest developments on their work, you can also sign up to their new newsletter here

Carnegie UK worked for over four years to promote a systems-based approach to regulation to tackle online harm in the UK.  During this time, we published numerous reports, analyses, blog posts, consultation responses and parliamentary submissions which helped shape the policy debate and the subsequent legislation.

This page provides easy access to the key documents, including our briefings, analyses and commentary on the Online Safety Bill (OSB) as it passed through Parliament.

In addition, we have included a section with external links to important documents related to the OSB, not published by Carnegie UK.
