Objetives of the serie of sessions:

Our world is digital, our economy is digital, our children live immersed in a digital world, and this digital world has so far functioned with little or no regulation, despite the risk of cyber-attacks, the proliferation of false information and conspiracy theories, the constant violations of privacy, the exposure of children to violent and pornographic content, etc.

How do we respond to all these challenges without negatively affecting innovation or excessively restricting freedom of expression? In this series we have invited some of the people who have spent the most time and effort thinking about these issues.

We want to listen to them, ask them questions and reflect with them with the ultimate aim of contributing to making the digital world a more welcoming, more habitable world, where the law of the strongest or the most rogue does not prevail. A world that reflects and respects the values of the physical world that we have been building since the dawn of the Enlightenment.

In her book Digital Empires: The Global Battle to Regulate Technology, Anu Bradford examines three competing regulatory approaches governing the digital economy—the American market-driven model, the Chinese state-driven model, and the European rights-driven regulatory model—and discusses how governments and tech companies navigate the inevitable conflicts that arise when these regulatory approaches collide in the international domain.

Each digital empire is advancing a competing vision for the digital economy while attempting to expand its sphere of influence in the digital world. Which digital empire will prevail in the contest for global influence remains an open question, yet their contrasting strategies are increasingly clear. In the midst of these unfolding regulatory battles, governments, tech companies, and digital citizens are making important choices that will shape the future ethos of the digital society.

Digital Empires lays bare the choices we face as societies and individuals, explains the forces that shape those choices, and illuminates the immense stakes involved for everyone who uses digital technologies.
