Projektsammanfattning

Rättsvetenskap och nya teknologier – vilka lagar gäller, hur anpassas de till framväxten av nya teknologier? Vilka nya regelverk behöver skapas?

Nanotechnology, synthetic biology, 3D printing, gene-editing, human enhancement, internet of things, artificial intelligence, ‘big data’ processing and predictive tools, to name a few examples are emerging technologies and technologic fields, creating exciting opportunities for human flourishing and wellbeing. New business models and alternative systems for incentive to innovation follow closely the new technologic reality. These also imply considerable ethical and social debates, implying considerable legal challenges. What laws to apply and how to interpret the existing normative framework is the first interrogation. A second, is how to adapt, improve and create rules that are adapted to a new scientific, technologic and business reality, but still conform to the basic social values of our civilization. This project will address legal issues raised by emerging technologies incorporation interdisciplinary contributes in legal thinking. Radically new technologic possibilities often imply normative choices, balancing different perspectives, and essential values. It is necessary to create or adapt specific regulations. Simultaneously, it should be avoided that the specificities of the technology lead to inconsistencies and unnecessary lack of coherence between different norms. Predictable and clear norms are essential for business entities, private citizens and society as a group.

Den poddande juridikprofessorn – möt Christian Dahlman som installerats som Pufendorfprofessor

Den poddande juridikprofessorn – möt Christian Dahlman som installerats som Pufendorfprofessor

Vissa professurer tillträds under mer pompa och ståt än andra. När Christian Dahlman i hög konkurrens tilldelades Pufendorfprofessuren*  vid Lunds universitet skedde det under rådande pandemi och enklare former – en mindre uppdatering i anställningsavtalet men desto större forskningsmöjligheter de kommande fyra åren. I januari 2022 höll Dahlman sin installationsföreläsning i en digital ceremoni på Lunds universitet.
