This forum will explore digital technologies in the information age, with a careful eye to how different countries and sectors approach the balance between risks, benefits and fundamental rights. Topics covered will include privacy and human rights versus security protection; vulnerabilities versus efficiencies posed by the Internet of Things; communication silos versus unfiltered information; access (denied) to information; and the vision for global cooperation. This conference comes at a critical time, when daily headlines remind us that digital technology informs so many important policy debates. Given how digital technology pervades citizens’ daily lives, it is imperative to step back and consider how we can govern the Information Society in a way that truly serves a worldwide interest. Speakers will come from academia, the government and nongovernmental sectors, as well as the media.
