Rob Peters’s research focuses on the digitalisation of law. He asks whether internet technology can actually help citizens navigate the legal landscape or whether the mixing of these worlds actually creates a digital bureaucratic labyrinth. He looks at three aspects of the assistive role of technology: access to relevant legal sources, legal effect planning and the law design process. He investigates the influence of digitalised law by exploring theories about legitimacy, bureaucracies, trust and violations of the social contract between citizens and government.
