The Constitutional Challenges of the Algorithmic Society

In recent years, the rise of the algorithmic society has led to a paradigmatic change where digital technologies have provided new opportunities for the exercise of fundamental rights and freedoms while also raising concerns about the role of constitutional democracies. The development of data collection, mining, and algorithmic analysis, resulting in predictive profiling – with or without the subsequent potential manipulation of attitudes and behaviours of users – present unique challenges to constitutional law at the doctrinal as well as the theoretical levels. This requires either the redrawing of constitutional boundaries or to revisit the relationship between constitutional law and private law, including the duties of the state to regulate the cybernetic complex, within or outside the jurisdictional boundaries of the state.

Chair(s): Andrea Simoncini
