Dan Svantesson, researcher at the Institute, has been awarded an Australian Research Council (ARC) Future Fellowship research grant to investigate the jurisdictional complexity of the Internet.

The research project will focus on Cloud Computing, Web 2.0 and geo-location technologies, and is a four-year international collaboration with Stockholm University, Queen Mary University of London, and the University of Oslo. The aim of the project is to identify principles to govern jurisdictional claims over Internet conduct and to produce a set of model laws.
