The Digital Social Contract

Program objectives

This program aims to create a more just and fair information society that promotes human flourishing. We examine future models of governance and recommend pragmatic policy changes that can improve regulatory regimes in the near term.

Our research focuses on:

  • promoting good governance and the protection of human rights in the regulation of digital technologies;
  • improving access to knowledge and culture; and
  • data civics (the management of data and analytics to enhance the common good).

We work closely with policy-makers, regulators, industry, and civil society to undertake and disseminate our research in a way that can improve governance practices in the management of behaviour, knowledge, cultural works, data, analytics, and automation.
