The Internet & Jurisdiction Observatory, composed of leading academic experts, supports the Internet & Jurisdiction Project in keeping track of the latest trends around the globe. This interdisciplinary network crowd-ranks every month all collected cases in the Internet & Jurisdiction database via a progressive filtering process. The 20 most important cases are showcased the monthly Internet & Jurisdiction Project newsletter Retrospect with concise summaries and links to relevant background information. The case collection ”2015 in Retrospect“ is a compilation of the 240 most important cases of 2015.
The Internet & Jurisdiction Project facilitates since 2012 a pioneering global multi-stakeholder process. It addresses the challenge of how to handle the digital coexistence of diverse national laws in shared cross-border online spaces and prevent a fragmentation of cyberspace. The Internet & Jurisdiction Project enables multi-stakeholder cooperation in order to develop new mechanisms that are as transnational as the Internet itself and guarantee due process across borders.
The process has a high visibility in various global Internet Governance fora and actively engages over 100 key entities including states, Internet companies, technical Internet operators, civil society organizations, international organizations and leading universities around the world.
