Dissemination and publications
IDP. The Internet, Law and Politics (Internet, Derecho y Política) journal aims to be a platform for reflection and discussion on the content and extent of the changes that the information and communication technologies –in particular, the phenomenon of the Internet– bring to the fields of law, politics and public administration: e-democracy, personal data processing, Internet provider responsibility, intellectual property and the freedom of speech on the Web, e-administration, the new forms of political participation, and consumer protection on the Internet are some of the issues addressed in magazine contributions. Magazine content ranges from theoretical reflection to specific experiences in these fields.
The journal is promoted by the faculty of the UOC's Faculty of Law and Political Science –their research focusing primarily on analysing the impact technological developments are having on the legal, political, and public administration fields– and is open to legal and political scholars and professionals who want to contribute.
Each issue of IDP. Journal on Internet, Law and Politics includes a featured topic, analysis articles, a review section (on research, recent publications, conferences, etc.) and a section commenting on new legislation.
