Moreover, together with the Internet affect many domains, such as individual rights, public liberties, property rights, economic competition, market regulation, conflict management, security and the sovereignty of states. This workshop will bring together an international team of scholars to discuss how technical, political, economic and social norms are articulated, as well as to understand who the main actors of this process of transformation are, how they interact, and how these changes may influence international rulings.

The Executive Training Seminar will be combined with the organization of high-level scientific conference to which the participants to the seminar will be invited.
