Global Governance by Data workshop and book, 8 – 9 September 2022

On 8 – 9 September 2022 more than 25 scholars from around the world gathered at  Edinburgh Law School (and online) for the Infra-legalities workshop, Global Governance by Data: Infrastructures of Algorithmic Rule.

The workshop opened important spaces for debate on how the data infrastructures sustaining AI and automated decision-making systems are reconfiguring international law and global governance practices and we might  address the conceptual, methodological and political challenges that these changes pose.

Participants presented their early draft chapters for feedback and collective discussion. The workshop will provide the basis for an exciting edited volume, Global Governance by Data: Infrastructures of Algorithmic Rule (co-edited by Fleur Johns, Gavin Sullivan and Dimitri Van Den Meerssche), forthcoming in the Global Law series of Cambridge University Press.
