Our Leibniz Media Lunch Talk goes Tea Time! (So that our speaker in the USA does not have to get up too early). Via conference platform Zoom Dr. David Morar, virtual Guest Researcher at HBI and Data Policy Postdoctoral Fellow at NYU Steinhardt, speaks about global internet rules. This Tea Time Talk focuses on both the esoteric questions about regulatory collaboration, and on the realities of 2021, a year that will see important reforms to existing frameworks and certainly proposals for new frameworks. Dr. Matthias C. Kettemann will provide the introduction. The event will be held in English.
When: Tuesday, March 16, 2021, 16-17 p.m.
Join us for the discussion! After registration, dial-in details will be emailed to you shortly before the event starts.
What do we understand by collaboration in terms of rules? How do different stakeholders collaborate towards a common goal when that goal ends up restricting the power of one of those groups? How do similar stakeholder groups with different geographic areas collaborate when their scope is culturally different? These are important questions, and they span the spectrum of concerns that collaboration inherently bubbles up. And this is if we assume everybody is acting in good faith. Issues of different goals, regulatory capture, or even, as some have described, cartelization, can all play a significant role in making collaboration not only untenable but also undesirable. This tea time talk focuses on both the esoteric questions about regulatory collaboration, and on the realities of 2021, a year that will see important reforms to existing frameworks and certainly proposals for new frameworks.
