What Governance for Online Platforms? Towards Digital Constitutionalism

Meeting and Call for Blog Posts

10:00 -18:30 o'clock

The Question

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 techbased 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, we call on colleagues working on digital constitutionalism to answer the most foundational question: ‘What is Digital Constitutionalism?’
