This webinar, titled “Conceptual Approaches to Digital Constitutionalism: A Counter-Critique,”, and moderated by Dr. Sunimal Mendis, promises a deep dive into the evolving landscape of digital constitutionalism. Don’t miss this opportunity to engage in a comprehensive discussion on digital constitutionalism with a leading expert in the field.

Abstract: Over the past decade, digital constitutionalism has become a focal point for scholars, policymakers, and private entities. Edoardo Celeste will provide a systematic mapping of how this concept has evolved and faced criticism. Initially rooted in an innovative and progressive context, theories of digital constitutionalism have expanded beyond the state. Celeste will propose three models categorizing emerging scholarly approaches and analyze critical arguments against digital constitutionalism. Drawing on his extensive work in this field, Celeste will conclude with a personal counter-critique to these views.
