This conference will explore the shifts in power and influence facilitated by the advent of large-scale digital connectivity – both in state-to-state relationships and in relations between governments, individuals and the private sector. It will also consider how increased connectivity is reshaping patterns of economic interaction and its effect on the nature, size and scope of the global economy.
Increased connectivity brings with it risks to personal freedom and privacy, and challenges to national security. The conference will also examine how national regulation and international governance in cyberspace will meet these challenges, and discuss the potential effects of bridging the digital divide and connecting billions of new users in the coming years.
