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
