Internet und Gesellschaft

Edited by Jeanette Hofmann, Matthias C. Kettemann, Björn Scheuermann, Thomas Schildhauer, and Wolfgang Schulz

The Alexander von Humboldt Institute for Internet and Society (HIIG) conducts and supports academic research on the interrelationship of the internet and the society. With a focus on the development of the internet and related processes of societal transformation, it examines major changes in the economy, at workplace, of the state and in public administration, in the light of the tension between governance and innovation. New challenges for the constitution, for human rights and security, but also the transformation of the public sphere and potential shifts in the roles of political actors, civil society, corporations, and customers are among the subjects of the interdisciplinary research led by the institute. The purpose of this publication series is to function as an open transdisciplinary platform of scientific exchange and discussion, providing public access to analyses and research findings in these fields of investigation. It covers legal, economic, social scientific, philosophical, and communication studies perspectives relating to the internet. Submissions of scholarly work from the HIIG as well as from other institutions are equally welcome.
