ABOUT THE EVENT

The digital economy has grown by leaps and bounds with technological innovations and network effects that were never witnessed before. The free flow of cross border trade in a border less internet has enabled an age of connectivity and interaction that disrupts traditional notions of capital, infrastructure and reach in an economy.

In recent years, we have seen many techno-regulatory frameworks in action and others that are yet to be formulated as technology progresses rapidly. On the one hand, policies must be enabling - to boost the economy and social communications through this massive advantage of connectivity; but on the other hand they must also be deterring - diminish the harm caused by bad actors. Today, there are newer forms of global compact taking place to curb online abuse and harm.

The session would focus on the aforesaid issues and the future of international relations and governance principles in a data-driven economy.
