GLOBSEC 2021: Bratislava Forum
Now, let's rebuild the world
Oxford Analytica is delighted to support GLOBSEC once again, by participating in a panel debate at the GLOBSEC 2021: Bratislava Forum. The Forum will search for common vision within four topical pillars addressing key areas that need rebuilding after the crisis:
- Democratic Renewal & Rebuilding of Trust
- Economic Growth & Recovery
- Global Europe in a Post-Pandemic World
- Tech Governance
Followed by two focused streams that need further attention in the post-pandemic world:
- Security for the Twenty-First Century
- Resilience in Health
Dr Megha Kumar, our Deputy Director of Analysis will join a panel entitled Splinternet: Goodbye Internet on June 17. The panel will discuss:
- The “Splinternet”, where cyberspace is controlled and regulated by different nation-states, is no longer just a concept. The free and open ideals that built the world wide web are increasingly at odds with the political agenda of governments across the globe. Can we expect a bifurcation of the internet into a Chinese-led internet and a non-Chinese internet led by the US?
- What are the potential risks imposed by digital authoritarianism?
- Can we save a free and open internet from censorship and geopolitical manoeuvring, or is it too late?
Joining Megha on the panel debate will be:
- Nicolas Colin, Co-founder, The Family
- Eileen Donahoe, Executive Director, Global Digital Policy Incubator, Stanford
Chair: Tyson Barker, Head of Technology and Global Affairs, German Council on Foreign Relations
