About this book
This book deals with questions of democracy and governance relating to new technolo-
gies. The deployment and application of new technologies is often accompanied with
uncertainty as to their long-term (un)intended impacts. New technologies also raise
questions about the limits of the law as the line between harmful and beneficial effects
is often difficult to draw.
The volume explores overarching concepts on how to regulate new technologies and
their implications in a diverse and constantly changing society, as well as the way in
which regulation can address differing, and sometimes conflicting, societal objectives,
such as public health and the protection of privacy.
Contributions focus on a broad range of issues such as Citizen Science, Smart Cities,
big data, and health care, but also on the role of market regulation for new technologies.
The book will serve as a useful research tool for scholars and practitioners interested
in the latest developments in the field of technology regulation.
Leonie Reins is Assistant Professor at the Tilburg Institute for Law, Technology and
Society (TILT) in The Netherlands.
