Governing Digital Societies

This program aims to unfold digital societies and give rise to new social, legal and technical challenges and opportunities. The major platforms continue to grow at enormous scale and wield power over the development of digital economies. Digital infrastructure continues to expand into every facet of societal life. New forms of online harm continually emerge as human relationships are increasingly mediated through digital infrastructure. New forms of legal intervention and governance are therefore required to promote just and fair digital societies that promotes human flourishing. We examine future models of governance and recommend policy changes that can improve regulatory regimes in the near term.
