Digital Constitutionalism: Constitutional Approaches to the Challenges of the Digital Age
The spread of digital technologies has raised primary questions for constitutional democracies in terms of protecting fundamental rights while limiting the exercise of discretionary powers. The rise of the digital age has not only provided opportunities but also challenged constitutional values. The protection of fundamentalrights or the principle of the rule of law are just two areas where it is possible to look at how digital technologies are shaping traditional categories of constitutional law. The global pandemic has underlined this situation while showing how the governance of the digital age is shaped not only by public authorities but also private ordering. This panel aims to examine the evolving relationship between digital technologies and the traditional boundaries of modern constitutionalism. The presentations are indeed connected by the fil rouge of digital constitutionalism as a new theoretical framework to study the evolution of constitutional law in the digital age.
