Policy & Regulation

Academic Leads: Asma Vranaki, Madeline Carr
Researchers: Ola Michalec, Jose Llanos

Protecting citizens online is a tangled and complex policy issue that produces highly contested ideas at both domestic and international levels regarding rights, privacy, responsibility, liability, legality and effectiveness of interventions. This strand will engage closely with current work streams within DCMS / Home Office, and also international initiatives, on policy & regulatory responses to online harms. We will convene academics and practitioners from law, economics, public policy, human rights, international relations, law enforcement, software/hardware design, international standards as well as citizens’ juries for the purpose.
