Initiatives that seek to articulate a set of political rights, governance norms, and limitations on the exercise of power on the Internet

Journal articles, book chapters, books, reports, research projects and materials about digital constitutionalism

The Network seeks to go beyond academic activities and to connect actors and organizations in the field

The teaching partnership involves several universities all over the world into common activities.

We believe in sharing knowledge

Access our database

A constantly updated data set of documents including declarations, bills of rights, charters and laws concerning Internet-related rights and governance principles.

The database contains documents drafted by civil society organisations, epistemic communities, international organisations, national governments, multi-stakeholder fora and parliaments.

The database may be used both as a tool for analysis and to take inspiration from previous initiatives in order to develop new documents or to adapt texts produced internationally in specific political and cultural contexts.

The Network

Our Mission

Digital constitutionalism describes the political process of entrenching rights and principles into the global governance of digital technologies, specifically the Internet. Digital constitutionalism does not describe actual legal constitutions but normative conversations about which rights and principles should govern the Internet – locally, nationally and globally.

The Digital Constitutionalism Network aims to systematically study the political, social, and legal processes involved in this field. The Network was created in late 2019 from a working group on digital constitutionalism supported by the Bochum-based Center for Advanced Internet Studies (CAIS). As of February 2020, the Network is comprised of members located at thirteen universities in Africa, Australia, North America and Europe.
