Welcome to the blog of the Digital Constitutionalism Network (DCN), an interdisciplinary network of scholars
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.
