Digital Societies

CPS Home > Research > Digital Societies

Research in this area seeks to draw on trans-disciplinary insights. The strands of inquiry that
have emerged for this research area are: political economy of development of a digital
infrastructure (broadband access, protocols, algorithms and AI, blockchain, content and
accreditation, privacy, scale of operations), the emergence of platforms and their
organisational designs within a wide array of commercial activities, the role of media and
social media, the intersections of the physical and digital spaces, information infrastructure
and information commons, and emerging regulation and anti-trust policies.

The attempt will be to develop both a historical and contemporary critical perspective
regarding how an increasingly digitalized society is responding to a rapidly changing digital
landscape. The very basis, it appears, of ‘value creation’ within society is getting
considerably disrupted.
