Digital Constitutionalism: Promoting Public Values in Digital Technologies
This working group aims to foster new interdisciplinary research and collaboration about how basic rights and fundamental values can best be protected in a digital age. In particular, it intends to develop a deeper understanding of the debates leading up to specific constitutional efforts captured with the term digital constitutionalism.
On November 20, we will organize a panel discussion that includes members of the working group and two distinguished guests: Prof. Marianne Franklin (Goldsmiths, University of London) and Prof. Yves Schemeil (Sciences Po Grenoble). We invite our speakers, the CAIS community and the interested public to think about our working group’s core theme “Promoting Public Values in Digital Technologies” together.
The working group intends to support the development of a practical tool in the form of an online platform. This platform’s purpose is to transfer academic knowledge relating to digital constitutionalism to society at large, focusing on civil society.
