New Issue | Law, Technology and Humans

A new issue of Law, Technology and Humans has been published.

Volume 6(1) includes articles from authors in Italy, the Netherlands, Australia and the UK. Mitchell Landigran, Stephen Wilson and Hamish Fraser explore digital identities and ways to manage multiple identifiers, while Daniele Battista and Gabriele Uva conduct an in-depth analysis of the effectiveness of policies to counter online hate speech on social platforms. Steven Crawford utilises Neal Stephenson’s speculative fiction and proposes that recovery of medieval conceptualisations of overlapping networked jurisdictions might aid in sensemaking of models of political communities. Temitope Lawal discusses how technology is changing the practice of law and attempts to assess whether technology is playing this change role in a solely deterministic manner.

Technology is also at the forefront in the context of family violence. Michelle Irving examines the use of post-separation parenting apps and the benefits and risks associated with attempts to improve parenting communication. In response to the increasing role that AI plays in society, Mariken Lenaerts and Antonia Waltermann discuss ‘folk concepts’ and relationships with the effective regulation of new technologies. Finally, Marcus Smith and Ausma Bernot examine security technology and argue for greater attention to be directed to associated data security and regulation, including security assessment to address the risks associated with international transfer via corporate entities.
