Law and Information Technology

The Swedish Law & Informatics Research Institute (IRI) examines the relationship and interaction between law and ICT (Information and Communication Technologies). The areas of interest include the interpretation and development of regulations in the digital society, as well as the methods for legally customised system design and management. Thus, the focus is not only on the regulation of ICT but it also includes issues concerning the development of legitimate digital tools, such as in the area of automation of legal work, e-governance, embedded legislation and security.
