Arcs in Internet Regulation: Assessing New Directions
We are pleased to announce that the University of Oxford will be hosting the forthcoming conference on “Arcs in Internet Regulation: Assessing New Directions” on November 23rd and 24th in Oxford. This is part of the annual Peking-Oxford-Stanford series in Internet Law and Policy. This conference builds on previous annual events and focuses on significant issues in Internet law and policy that will require attention in the coming years, such as digital human rights, smart cities, new technologies and courts, and Internet governance and development.
The conference draws primarily on the strengths of the three universities involved, and their networks, bringing together a unique collection of scholars and students, government officials, corporate executives, and civil society representatives with the goal of informing research and strengthening the understanding of alternative viewpoints with a focus on the US, Europe and China, as well as global challenges
This is an extraordinary opportunity to debate and discuss the future of the Internet. The Conference is hosted by the University of Oxford’s Programme in Comparative Media Law and Policy in the Faculty of Law’s Centre for Socio-Legal Studies, with generous support from Tencent.
