Artificial Intelligence Regulation as an Institutional Change-Maker Within the European Union and the United States

Project Summary

This research situates AI policy and regulatory proposals within the broader context of their origin – the institutions within which they are being created. It adopts an interdisciplinary approach, including sociotechnical, political science, and socio-legal methods, to map and empirically investigate perceived challenges and sites of potential institutional change within the regulation of AI. A comparative analysis of the United States and the European Union provides a broader framework to compare how responses and regulatory changes materialise within different economic, political, and social contexts
