This event will examine the unregulated, non-law governed world that is the internet.
Andrew Puddephatt will look at the profound challenges facing policy and law making in the digital world, where policy lags behind reality, governments fear the technology, and conventional policy tools are not adequate. The event will look at creating a human rights-based infrastructure for the internet, considering what that might look like, how it might work and why conventional law making won’t be enough.
