Rotem Medzini is a Ph.D. Candidate in Public Policy at the Federmann School of Public Policy and Government and a Research Fellow at The Federmann Cyber Security Center – Cyber Law Program, both at The Hebrew University of Jerusalem. In his Ph.D. dissertation project, supervised by Prof. David Levi-Faur, Rotem is investigating Internet policy by regulatory intermediaries to understand better why and how regulation grows online, how the digital economy and the information capitalism influence society, and how society should regulate them in return. Until recently, Rotem was also a researcher at The Israel Democratic Institute investigating how to combat hate-crimes and xenophobia on social media. Before arriving at the Hebrew University, Rotem received his JSM from Stanford Law School as part of the Stanford Program in International Legal Studies (SPILS). At Stanford, Rotem wrote his thesis (with Honors) on how the regulation of the Federal Trade Commission influenced the privacy-related practices of Facebook and Google. Rotem also holds an LL.B. and an LL.M both from the University of Haifa and both in the field of Law & Technology. At the University of Haifa, Rotem was a research fellow and the coordinator of the Haifa Center for Law and Technology. Alongside his academic achievements, Rotem also took part in Internet policymaking in the Israeli arena. Rotem clerked for the Commissioner of the Israeli Law, Information, and Technology Authority (The Israel Data Protection Authority) at the Israeli Department of Justice, and for seven years acted as one of the project leaders of the Israel affiliate team of Creative Commons.
