I&J Observatory Grows to 31 Members

Published on
July 12, 2014

The Internet & Jurisdiction Observatory was created in April 2012, four months after the official launch of the Internet & Jurisdiction. It provides expert input into the global multi-stakeholder dialogue process and helps the I&J Project team to detect trends related to the tension between the cross-border nature of the Internet and national jurisdictions around the world. Every month, the I&J Observatory members crowd-rank all cases that were collected in the Retrospect Database to identify the top 20 cases of every month. This ranking is the backbone of the I&J Retrospect, our monthly newsletter that informs the different stakeholders who participate in the ongoing dialogue process about emerging trends.

As of December 2013, 31 selected international experts from 25 different institutions in 13 countries are part of the I&J Observatory. The interdisciplinary network is composed of respected senior experts while leaving room for emerging talents.
