Researchers within this CoR collaborate with policymakers and technologists to improve the trustworthiness and effectiveness of interconnected digital systems such as the Internet, and to evolve new legal and regulatory structures appropriate to these systems. Our work provides global policymakers with technically grounded guidance for policies regarding cybersecurity, Internet privacy, and more. By learning from policymakers and legal scholars, we will develop a deeper understanding of the social requirements of systems. At the same time, our computer science and engineering research introduces new architectures, analytic techniques, and technical affordances to make the computing infrastructure used by the world more responsive to societal needs.
