Global Regulation of Digital Technology and Surveillance

The emergence of digital technology, including AI-enabled tools, has given states an ever-greater ability to monitor and surveil the activities of its citizens. State responses to the coronavirus pandemic—in both autocracies and democracies—have exacerbated concerns about infringements of civil liberties and privacy. While there are legitimate public health reasons for deploying new surveillance mechanisms, such as contact-tracing apps and other digital tracking measures, they also give rise to deeper data protection and privacy concerns. More broadly, they speak to a fundamental question about the proper balance between citizen and state, and where to draw the line between advancing state interests versus protecting citizens’ civil liberties and political freedoms.
Carnegie Moscow Center organizes online discussion of these questions and other related issues. To submit a question for the event, please use the YouTube chat or tweet at us @CarnegieRussia​.
This event is part of the Carnegie Moscow Center and U.S. Embassy in Moscow’s joint project: “Re-launching U.S.-Russia Dialogue on Global Challenges: The Role of the Next Generation.”
