As technology facilitates the expansion of social, economic, and political horizons, boundless opportunity must be tempered with thoughtful and humane constraint, guided by the values and principles that sustain democracy and human rights. CDE scholars including Laura DeNardis, Julie Cohen, Meg Leta Jones, and Anupam Chander study the history of technology governance and reimagine it for the new digital frontier. They help students, colleagues, policymakers, and the public to confront the unprecedented choices and challenges created by technological practice and innovation. In this endeavor, they raise profound philosophical questions, analyze critical political and social repercussions, and create intellectual and practical pathways to a future that can meet the enormous promise–and shoulder the tremendous responsibility–engendered by human technological progress.
