Collected Works on Composable Governance is an open-access publication published by the MIT Computational Law Report. Submissions include original research, practical guides, tutorials, and overviews of topics related to composable governance. We convened several speakers to discuss the key composable governance themes and examples in June, and you can see the archived video and learn more about the speakers in our media section. Accepted submissions will be published in two batches. The first batch of submissions will be published in December 2022. To encourage a broad range of voices, topics were not limited to any particular length or format. Additional information about Collected Works on Composable Governance will be available here.
The papers in this release were developed and first disseminated as part of CodeX Insurance Initiative (CII), a project of CodeX, the Stanford Center for Legal Informatics. https://law.stanford.edu/codex-the-stanford-center-for-legal-informatics/codex-insurance-initiative/. The mission of the CII is to bring the technology of computable contracts to bear on problems of transparency, complexity, and administrative cost that constrain the insurance industry. We believe that in many areas it is possible to codify the terms of contracts in computable form, to make these computable contracts available to all parties in an online contract ecosystem (which we call ContractNet), and to use this ecosystem to provide users of all stripes with answers to real and hypothetical questions about the terms of these contracts.
