ABOUT THE CENTRE FOR COMMUNICATION GOVERNANCE
The Centre for Communication Governance at National Law University Delhi was established in 2013 to ensure that Indian legal education establishments engage more meaningfully with information technology law and policy, and to contribute to improved governance and policymaking. CCG is the only academic research centre dedicated to working on information technology law and policy in India, and in a short span of time has become a leading institution in the sector.
Through its Technology and Society team, CCG seeks to embed constitutional values and good governance within information technology law and policy and examine the evolution of existing rights frameworks to accommodate new media and emerging technology. It seeks to support the development of the right to freedom of speech, right to dignity and equality, and the right to privacy in the digital age, through rigorous academic research, policy intervention, and capacity building. The team’s ongoing work is on subjects such as— privacy and data governance/protection, regulation of emerging technologies like artificial intelligence, blockchain, 5G and IoT, platform regulation, misinformation, intermediary liability and digital access and inclusion.
This complements the work of the Technology and National Security team at CCG that focuses on issues that arise at the intersection of technology and national security law, including cyber security, information warfare, and the interplay of international legal norms with domestic regulation. The team’s work aims to build a better understanding of national security issues in a manner that identifies legal and policy solutions that balance the legitimate security interests and national security choices with constitutional rights and the rule of law, in the context of technology law and policy. The team undertakes analysis of international law as well as domestic laws and policies that have implications for national
security. Our goal is to develop detail-oriented, principled and pragmatic recommendations for policy makers on national security issues faced by India, with an emphasis on cyber security and cyber conflict.
The work at CCG is designed to build competence and raise the quality of discourse in research and policy around issues concerning constitutional rights and rule of law in the digital age, cybersecurity and global internet governance. The academic research and policy output is intended to catalyse effective research-led policy making and informed public debate around issues in technology, internet governance and information technology law and policy.
