ZeMKI member Dr. Dennis Redeker (Lab “Platform Governance, Media, and Technology”) will co-host the “Quantum Constitutionalism Workshop: Law and Governance for the Quantum Age”, which will take place at the Haus der Wissenschaft in Bremen on 7 and 8 November 2022. The workshop will bring together researchers from around Europe to discuss the possible implications of the maturation and application of quantum technologies for human rights in the digital age. During the workshop, different disciplinary perspectives will be presented by speakers from the fields of quantum physics, communication research, constitutional and media law and political science. The interdisciplinary approach will be utilized to distill a research agenda to better understand the societal implications of a possible quantum revolution.
The workshop is funded by the Academy of Sciences in Hamburg through a grant provided jointly to Dr. Dennis Redeker, Adio-Adet Tichafara Dinika (BIGSSS and Zentrum für Arbeit und Politik, University of Bremen) and Dr. Clara Iglesias Keller (Leibniz Institute for Media Research | Hans-Bredow-Institut and Wissenschaftszentrum Berlin). Additional organizers are Dr. Edoardo Celeste (Dublin City University), Prof. Matthias C. Kettemann (University of Innsbruck and Leibniz Institute for Media Research | Hans-Bredow-Institut), Fabienne Marco (Technical University of Munich) and Noha Halim (Technical University of Munich). The event is additionally co-hosted by two transnational networks, the Internet Rights and Principles Coalition (IRPC) and the Digital Constitutionalism Network. The workshop is yet another successful cooperation between ZeMKI and the Leibniz Institute for Media Research | Hans-Bredow-Institut (HBI).
