Abstract

The idea of making the law concrete, principled and accessible to citizens has a long and distinguished history. With the growth of the Internet, laws can now be easily accessed by most citizens, but is the law truly accessible? Or is there a ‘crisis of the law’ as citizens and organizations try to make sense of the increasing number of legislation coming from European, national and regional governments? This paper argues that as the law gets more complex, conflicting, and ever-changing, more advanced tools to make the law truly accessible are needed. The paper presents Eunomos, an integrated Knowledge Management System that enables customers to find and understand the law in their domain of interest. Eunomos has generated much interest in the financial sector. The paper discusses how Eunomos is also suitable for public organizations and citizens, particularly in view of the challenges and opportunities presented by Web 3.0 and the Internet of things.
