Technology Competition and Global Governance
April 24, 2019
2:00 PM—4:15 PM HKT (UTC + 8)
Beijing
Technology is challenging the prevailing global governance system and causing frictions in the U.S.-China relationship. Beijing is developing its own tech ecosystem, leading some experts to warn of the bifurcation of the Internet into Chinese and Western dominions. This growing competition is highlighting differences in Chinese, EU, and U.S. approaches to technology and data regulation and putting pressure on the rules and norms governing technology. In this age of profound transformations, how can different sectors of society, including businesses, work together to establish guidelines for the use and development of sensitive technologies? What role can governments play in resolving disputes? And what does the future hold for the governance of emerging technologies such as artificial intelligence and 5G, among others?
Carnegie–Tsinghua Center Director Paul Haenle moderated a discussion about the path forward for maintaining order in a world reshaped by technology while advancing efforts for innovation and cooperation. The discussion was followed by a panel of SAIS-Tsinghua students who presented their research on the Belt and Road Initiative.
This event was off the record.
