  Understanding the Dark Web and its Implications for Policy  
(National Capital Region)

The Dark Web and cryptocurrencies are intertwined digital innovations, characterized by their ability to provide (psudo)anonymous platforms and spaces for users. The "Dark Web" is the unindexed portion of the internet, hosting sites not found through a Google search and requiring a special methods of access.

The Dark Web allows its users near complete anonymity. Various individuals and groups can leverage this anonymity for both well-meaning and malicious purposes, generating a "Dark Web dilemma." The dual nature of anonymity makes forming public policy a careful balancing act, as governments face trade-offs between controlling illicit activities and suppressing legitimate use.

The extent to which the dark web can (and should) be governed is contentious. As the Dark Web and cryptocurrencies increase in prevalence, regulators must grapple with that question of policy and governance. Further public policy research and discussion is sorely needed. This conference hopes to address this gap, and debate the complex policy and normative questions regarding the Dark Web.
