Carlos Liguori is a Ph.D Candidate at the University of São Paulo Law School and a Resident Fellow of the Information Society Project at Yale Law School. His research focuses on encryption regulation, cybersecurity policy and fundamental rights. Its main objectives are: (i) to understand the role of encryption technologies in enabling the exercise of fundamental rights in the information society and the problem that its adoption might bring to other rights; (ii) to comprehend technical aspects and limitations of encryption technologies in order to understand the limits of the effectiveness and enforceability of the Law in its regulation; and, hopefully, (iii) to address the following question: what should be the role of the Law (if any) in regulating encryption?.
Prior to his Fellowship at ISP, Carlos was a Research Coordinator at the Centro de Ensino e Pesquisa em Inovação at FGV Direito SP (CEPI-FGV), where he led research projects on (i) Copyright Law in the information age; (ii) the international debate on encryption regulation; and (iii) fake news and Electoral Courts in the Brazilian 2018 Presidential elections. He holds a Masters Degree in Law and Development from FGV Direito SP, and a L.L.B from University of São Paulo.
