Ido Sivan Sevilla

Ido is a PhD Candidate at the School of Public Policy and Government at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem. Ido's research deals with the design of public policies and regulations in cyberspace. His main research question is how national security and civil liberties complement and contradict in the digital age. Ido is conducting a comparative analysis between two central political systems, ​and traces the development of regulation through legislation, policy institutions, government orders, court rulings, and policy guidelines. ​While the literature is rich with theoretical debates over the tensions between security and liberty, Ido examines empirically, over the course of Forty years, how these values are de-facto constructed in the technological sphere. ​Ido's research aims to increase our understanding on how regulation is evolved, and shed light on the construction of fundamental principles within our current information society.
