    Digital transformation and the democratic constitutional order

    The German basic law and other model constitutions frequently offer a dual perspective on the current development of digital transformation. On the one hand, they tend to be open for the integration of technological change in administration and society. On the other hand, they set clear limits for the use of algorithmic decision making. The research in this area thus targets the perspective of constitutional orders on digitalization. It aims to understand and specify the applicable constitutional frame while at the same time suggesting guidelines for the constitutional integration of technology.
