The Information Society working group is an interdisciplinary forum for all those working on topics and themes related to the Information Society, including topics related to Internet Governance, Digital Contestation, the societal, legal and political impacts of new communications technology and digital research methods. Researchers and Fellows from all departments and the Robert Schuman Centre are welcome to attend and contribute to the group.
The INFOSOC Working Group has been active at the EUI since Spring term 2006, and is supported by Prof. Peter Drahos.
Previous events have encompassed topics such as the role of copyright, online deliberation, electronic legal tools, and geo-identification on the Internet. In the framework of the seminar "The Internet: Politics and Law", a course with which the working group is closely affiliated, we had the pleasure of welcoming several external speakers.
