Enhancing the role of information and communications technologies in the 21st century

This initiative examines the complex policy and legal questions raised by rapidly evolving digital technologies. Plummeting storage and communications costs, increasingly capable mobile devices, and the growth of the cloud are making anytime, anywhere access to information a reality for billions of people around the world. In addition to providing innumerable benefits, these changes are raising new challenges impacting privacy, the role of digital media, cybersecurity, intellectual property, and many other areas. Researchers at the Luskin Center are helping to develop national and international policy frameworks that are better matched to current and emerging digital technologies.
