Focus Areas

TLS tackles the challenges that arise when technology, law, and security intersect.

  • By technology, we mean not only the transformative technologies in use today, but also emerging and shifting technologies such as artificial intelligence and quantum computing.
  • By law, we mean the legal, regulatory, and policy frameworks that impact how public and private actors respond to technology-driven threats and opportunities, including the ways legal and regulatory structures address risks to privacy, security, free speech, and democratic institutions.
  • By security, we mean security along three overlapping dimensions: the security of our nation; the security of individuals; and the security of democratic systems and the international rules-based order.

We will dig deep into concrete issues through projects led by team members with directly relevant experience and expertise. Across all of our projects, TLS will work closely with the private and public sectors to develop and build support for innovative, practical solutions. Our projects will include a cross-cutting focus on emerging tech and AI, the protection of fundamental rights, and international engagement.

Projects will initially fall within the following 3 interrelated focus areas: Content Regulation in the Digital AgeCyber & Information Conflict and Privacy, Transparency, & Security.
