Spring Series 2014: Oisin Tobin, The Internet and International Law

The Irish Society of International law would like to thank Mr. Oisin Tobin for his insightful presentation on the internet and public international law. Mr Tobin explored a number of common myths in academic literature regarding the internet as an ungoverned and unregulated space. His contention was that the internet represented a highly regulated but contested space that highlights the currency of the international law principle of jurisdiction and the need for robust litigation in a global context.
