Working group

INFOSOC (Information Society) Working Group

The Information Society Working Group (InfoSoc WG) is an interdisciplinary forum covering the broad theme of “Information Society”. Topics of interest include Internet governance, the societal, legal, and political impacts of new communications technology, digital trade, freedom of speech, and platform regulation. The InfoSoc WG has been active at the EUI since Spring term 2006, and is supported by Prof. Peter Drahos.

Researchers and fellows from all departments and the Robert Schuman Centre are welcome to attend and contribute to the group. The InfoSoc WG offers the opportunity to interact with other researchers interested in similar topics, to get feedback on on-going papers and projects, to propose seminars with professors and policy-makers, and to remain updated on relevant EUI and external events related to the Information Society.
