Digital technologies foster a profound transformation of societies, organizations, and consumer habits. Their rapid adoption and frequently transnational nature have proved challenging for regulators.
As demonstrated by taxi drivers' struggle against the rising power of ridesharing companies like Uber or the implementation of new rules in Europe dealing with personal data collection, regulatory issues are especially significant in the digital age.
At Université Paris Dauphine – PSL, the issue of governance and regulation is tackled with approaches from various fields: law, economics, management, sociology, etc.
More broadly, the prevalence of non-human actors in decision-making (including in legal and police matters, but also in organizations and in processes for recruitment and performance evaluation) raises the question of algorithms' level of fairness and how best to regulate them.
At the same time, the collection of personal data being at an unprecedented level through these technologies also raises new questions about the right balance between efficiency, justice, and privacy.
