Weizenbaum meets Matthias C. Kettemann: Die normative Ordnung des Internets

"Weizenbaum meets Matthias C. Kettemann: Die normative Ordnung des Internets [The Normative Order of the Internet]", lecture by M. C. Kettemann at the Weizenbaum Institute for Networked Society on 2 April 2019 in Berlin.

The Internet is not a legal-free space. But what can constitutional law, European law, international law and non-state, transnational and hybrid regulatory arrangements achieve in the face of political polarisation between Internet freedom and cyber security? Against the backdrop of the economic, social and political effects of information and communication technologies, I am developing the foundations for the development of a normative order of the Internet. I identified the conflicting interests of various stakeholders in the implementation of the regulatory goal of Internet governance as a fundamental conflict in the normative order of the Internet. My central research work consists of building on a critical norm theory to design an unfragmented order for the Internet (a "nomos") that contains various "narratives" that are appropriated by different stakeholder groups. Finally, I show how the norms that flow from the normative order of the Internet as a network of norms can be integrated within the state. Finally, I demonstrate that state legal systems can draft transnational regulatory arrangements.
