Whose Rules? Digital Governance and the Pursuit of Technological Leadership

March 4, 2019 • 2:00 – 4:30 pm EST

Featuring a keynote address from Representative Suzan DelBene (D-WA) | Closing remarks from Ambassador Robert Holleyman

A fragmented model of digital governance is emerging. Data regulation, technical and ethical standards, and market leadership are all in flux, raising questions about whose rules, if any, will become the global standard. This CSIS Simon Chair event will look at the evolution of technology and digital governance in the world’s major economies – the United States, Europe, China, and Japan – and how competing visions and differing priorities are shaping national and regional approaches to digital governance.
