Yeung on Constitutional Principles in a Networked Digital Society

Karen Yeung (The University of Birmingham) on “Constitutional Principles in a Networked Digital Society” on SSRN. Here is the abstract:

This is the text of a keynote address delivered at the International Association of Constitutional Law (IACL) Roundtable, The Impact of Digitization on Constitutional Law, Copenhagen on 31 January 2022. In this short address, I ask: are our existing constitutional principles fit for purpose in an increasingly datafied, networked digital age? I suggest that our constitutional principles, including our rights discourse, has the potential to adapt to meet the altered conditions of our increasingly digitised and datafied age, but whether they will succeed in doing so remains an open question.
