Enabling an Evidence-based Global Dialogue Process

Internet & Jurisdiction  facilitates an evidence-based global multistakeholder dialogue process. To enable cooperation between stakeholders to develop a transnational due process framework for the Internet, it informs its participants about emerging trends and high-level patterns.

Internet & Jurisdiction  detected, curated and categorized over 300 cases around the world in a dedicated database between January and December 2014. They show the tension between the cross-border nature of the Internet with its transnational online spaces and the patchwork of geographically defined national jurisdictions.

The Internet & Jurisdiction Observatory supports the Internet & Jurisdiction team in keeping track of the latest trends around the globe. This interdisciplinary network of selected international experts crowd-ranks every month the cases collected in the Internet & Jurisdiction database via a progressive filtering process. The 20 most important cases are showcased in the monthly Internet & Jurisdiction Retrospect newsletter with concise summaries and links to relevant background information.

The case collection ”2014 in Retrospect“ is a compilation of 240 selected cases. It provides a review of crucial dynamics to identify emerging norms, stimulate discussions and trigger research.
