Join us for the third edition of the School on Digital Constitutionalism in 2024!

The three-day programme focuses on cutting-edge issues of the algorithmic society. We will open with a keynote and a high-level panel on the first day and then we will continue with morning lectures and afternoon workshops in the other two days. This year, the focus will be on platform regulation. Online platforms have raised constitutional challenges. From competition and data to online content, the protection of fundamental rights and the limitation of powers in a transnational dimension is a key question. This requires to examine the articulation of online platform regulation, particularly considering the recent policy expansions driven by the Digital Services Act and the Digital Markets Act.

The School aims to create a multi-stakeholder environment where scholars, practitioners, students and experts in the field of law, sociology, technology and economics can exchange views and opinions.

The idea has been conceived within the framework of the research group on “Algorithmic State, Market and Society” which was launched during the inaugural conference on “Constitutional Challenges in the Algorithmic Society” held at the University of Florence and European University Institute in May 2019.

The School is jointly hosted by the University of Florence (Italy), the European University Institute (Florence, Italy), Bocconi University (Milan, Italy), and Católica Global School of Law (Lisbon, Portugal).

The School is coordinated by professors Oreste Pollicino, Giovanni Sartor, Andrea Simoncini, Hans-W. Micklitz, Amnon Reichman, Erik Longo and Giovanni De Gregorio.
