Résumé

La normativité technique d’Internet pose un problème d’autant plus aigu que ses dimensions socio-technique et socio-éthique sous-jacentes demeurent le plus souvent soustraites à toute forme de critique réflexive. Les dispositifs techniques (supports, systèmes, réseaux) sont souvent représentés comme des objets complexes, mais qui, du point de vue de la normativité, relèvent d’une sorte de neutralité structurelle et fonctionnelle. Or, il importe d'ouvrir la « boîte noire » de la technique afin d’identifier et de discuter les formes de normativité que ces dispositifs véhiculent, avec ou sans volonté délibérée de la part de leurs concepteurs. Il s’agit en particulier de déterminer jusqu’à quels degrés et selon quelles modalités les systèmes de décision et de régulation qui ont à gérer les normes techniques d’Internet (a) peuvent intégrer des conceptions socio-techniques et socio-éthiques dans leur développement, (b) peuvent s’ouvrir à des contre-pouvoirs politiques.

Annonce

The third workshop of the IG3T Project: {Technical Normalcy and Internet Governance:  Socio-Technical and Socio-Ethical Dimensions} will be held in the Catholic University of Milano  on Friday March 27th 2009, 10.00-16.00

Led by Norberto Patrignani (CeTIF-Catholic University of Milano)

Catholic University of Milano: Cripta dell'Aula Magna, Largo Gemelli 1, Milano

Presentation:

The technical normativity of the Internet is particularly problematic as its underlying socio-technical and socio-ethical aspects generally remain removed from any form of reflexive criticism.

The technical devices (supports, systems, networks) are often represented as complex objects. And, they are associated with a sort of structural and functional neutrality. However, it is important «to open the black box» of technology in order to identify and discuss the forms of normativity that these devices convey, with or without any deliberate intention from their designers.

In particular, this is a question of determining to which degrees and according to which methods the decision-making and regulatory systems that govern the technical norms and standards of the Internet: 

  • can integrate socio-technical and socio-ethical designs into their development
  • and can be opened up to political checks and balances.

In this workshop we will investigate the best blend of the several approaches or dimensions for governing a «public common» like the Internet: architecture (hardware, software), laws, education, etc.
