Conference: “Digital Media Governance and Supranational Courts”, November 4 (RSCAS-EUI, Italy)

Launch of the book ‘Digital Media Governance and Supranational Courts: Selected Issues and Insights from the European Judiciary’, Edward Elgar Publishing. The book untangles the digital media jurisprudence of supranational courts in Europe with a focus on the Court of Justice of the European Union (CJEU) and the European Court of Human Rights (ECtHR). It argues that in the face of regulatory tension and uncertainty, courts can have a strong bearing on the applicable rules and standards of digital media. Chapters written by expert contributors explore the interpretative steps taken by the CJEU and the ECtHR to solve arising legal issues, shedding light on their interpretation and refinement of the applied rules.

The book provides fresh insights into the effects of European adjudication on the content and scope of the rules enforced and examines the ways in which the two European courts address the specificities of digitalization and digital media in their rulings. It also addresses the process of defining the constitutional boundaries of digital media and the exercise of rights and freedoms therein, focusing on digital media and the distinct challenges posed by digitalization and digital communication.

Digital Media Governance and Supranational Courts will be a key resource for academics and scholars of European and Constitutional law, fundamental rights and digital transformation, as well as for students seeking a better understanding of the contribution of the CJEU and the ECtHR to digital media governance.
