Digital sovereignty. Fiction or reality?

Research output: Contribution to conferenceAbstractpeer-review


Digital sovereignty is a completely new legal concept that has emerged from academic discussions in 2020 in both the UN Global Governance Forum and a debate in the European Union to ensure a single digital legal space in the European Union. The goal of the presentation is to study the concept of digital sovereignty and the possible problems of its application in criminal proceedings in connection with the obtaining and processing of electronic evidence in a criminal case in the national and international domains. Relevant legal and well-known gnoseological methods will be used to prepare the study. Authoritative sources of legal literature will be used in the preparation of the research. The results of the research will be compiled and published in the RSU JF electronic edition Socrates or in another edition included in international databases. Finally, based on the data obtained in the study, conclusions will be prepared that will assess the sustainability and development of the "digital sovereignty".
