The EU, US, and China have different visions for data governance, and are increasingly muscular in defining and defending those visions. They are also adopting strategies to expand their influence over g norms, standards, principles, and agreements.
Their efforts will have far reaching consequences for trade, the governance of technology, innovation and the distribution of comparative advantage. This session will key characteristics of each data realm, their data governance, innovation, and international strategies and the effects of their strategies upon other nations. We will also examine the recent tug of war over key platforms Tiktok and WeChat and the implications for the three realms.
- What are the defining characteristics of the EU, US and China ‘Data Realms’?
- How are these likely to evolve into the future?
- What are their implications for trade, the governance of technology, innovation, and where comparative advantages may lie moving forward?
- What are the likely impacts of these data realms on businesses, consumers and governments in other countries?
In the second portion of the session, the floor will open for a moderated audience discussion guided by the question:
If digital realms imply further bifurcation of the internet, what do you think will happen next? And what will that mean for digital rights?
Continue the conversation in the dedicated chat on the Beyond Trade Network.
