Internet Governance Lab Faculty Director Laura DeNardis and Faculty Fellow Professor Jen Daskal (Washington College of Law) presented their work on cross-border cyber regulation at the annual Second Circuit Judicial Conference in New Paltz, New York on Thursday.
Their panel, titled “The Internet is Everywhere and Nowhere: Extraterritorial Law and the Global Regulation of Data,” opened with Professor DeNardis providing a detailed explanation of the underlying infrastructure of the Internet and the ways in which this technical architecture crosses borders and constructs new policy problems. Professor Daskal presented on two specific legal and policy problems arising from ways in which data moves and is stored across borders: law enforcement access to data and speech regulation online. Yale Law School professor Oona Hathaway moderated the discussion, which also featured Bruce Swartz, Deputy Assistant Attorney General of the Department of Justice.
The conference also featured a conversation with Associate Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, with topics ranging from "Human Rights and Federal Courts" to "Adjudicating Global Insolvencies."
