About Molly K. Land

I study the relationship between human rights, science, and technology, particularly with respect to the Internet and social media. My research focuses on two types of issues. First, I am interested in the way in which technology is changing human rights fact-finding and advocacy, including by enabling more participatory approaches to documentation as well as methods better suited for monitoring violations of economic rights. Second, I investigate the nature of the obligations of states and non-state actors with respect to science and innovation, including internet governance policies. My research also emphasizes issues of institutional design, including in its consideration of the impact of the interpretive methodologies used by international courts with respect to human rights.
