Jeffrey Rosen
IIEA3rd July 20171min

In his keynote address, Prof. Rosen argued that in light of dizzying changes in technology, the future of global free speech and privacy is being determined not by the U.S. Supreme Court or by international courts but by lawyers at Google, Facebook, and Twitter, who decide what kind of content to leave up or take down. He addressed the question of how the U.S. Supreme Court will respond to technological change in the age of Google.  He also reflected on how the Court will maintain checks and balances and the rule of law in the face of new populist forces in the U.S. and around the globe.
