This joint conference is co-organised by the EUI Digital Public Sphere Working group, the EUI Technological Change and Society Interdisciplinary Research Cluster, DIGI CON, the Programme in Comparative Media Law and Policy of the University of Oxford and the Digital Constitutionalism Network.

Digital constitutionalism is a growing concept within the scholarship, especially when looking at platform governance. A view of constitutionalism as an architecture of governance is an appealing idea, connecting the legal, market, and technology narratives. However, there is still substantial disagreement as to its definition and scope.

From legal approaches, through the development of transnational Bills of Rights, to market approaches based on antitrust or tech-based solutions, Digital Constitutionalism welcomes the diverse views on the future of constitutionalism in the digital age and its relationship with platform governance. To debate these diverse notions of the topic, this conference will discuss the most foundational question: What is Digital Constitutionalism?

Registration closes on 25 November 2021 at 12pm.
