Select Berkman Research Projects

The Berkman Center enjoys a global reputation for cutting-edge work centered on the relationships between the Internet, law, and society. Our mode — entrepreneurial nonprofit — embraces our pursuit of scholarly research in the manner and spirit of an academic think tank, anchored by the diverse collaborative and individual work of our faculty and fellows.

Our efforts are concentrated in three areas of inquiry, united by the question of how the Internet can elicit the best from its users: Law, Technology, Innovation, and Knowledge; The Relationship between Internet and Civic Activity; and Technology, Law, and Development.

Select Opportunities to Get Involved at Berkman

The success of the Berkman Center's mission rests upon our community, starting with students and building from there. We don’t simply study networks – we consciously and deliberately create them, linking students, faculty, fellows, affiliates, alumni, staff, researchers, funders, other nonprofit and academic organizations, for-profit ventures, government entities, and the public we serve. Some specific opportunities are listed below, and other opportunities are available, too - please feel welcome to approach Berkman staff and fellows if you have interest in their work, and ask if there are any ways to collaborate.

To note, absolutely no formal affiliation with Berkman is necessary for you to engage and be part of the Berkman Center community. Informal collaborations are often the source of our most fruitful relationships.
