The exercise of political rights by digital means looks inevitable in the near future. Currently, Estonia is arguably the nation with the most experience in this topic. We are as such delighted to host Prof. Dr. Mart Susi in our International Dialogues in Constitutional Law, for a lecture, followed by Q&A, titled E-democracy and fundamental rights: the example of Estonia. Mart Susi, Professor of Human Rights Law at Tallinn University, is the editor of the recently-published volume Digital Society, Human Rights and the Law (Routledge, 2019).

On October 8, our International Dialogues on Constitutional Law will host Prof. Dr. Alexander C. Fischer (Jindia Global Law School, India), who will give a lecture on this topic.
