Control over our data: what role for international Geneva on data governance?

Today, a global digital society is emerging through the transfer of data abroad on a massive scale. Some states, however, seem to be returning to national isolationism, encouraging local storage solutions so as to be less dependent on foreign infrastructures and platforms. Switzerland is debating the adoption of a ‘Swiss Cloud’ for certain categories of data, while our neighbors are considering a European strategy. In addition to the geopolitical dimension, this massive transfer of data in Switzerland and abroad raises questions concerning protection of our privacy and control over our data. This conference will examine the role of multilateralism in the search for global responses.

The Digital Transformation Office of the University of Geneva invites you to join its e-conference on “Control over our data: what role for international Geneva on data governance?” on Wednesday 18th of November.

Joint C4DT-CyberPeace Institute-CTEI conference on “Manipulating elections in cyberspace: are democracies in danger?”

Increasingly, reports warn that state-sponsored actors use social media to spread fake news/disinformation in order to sow distrust and create panic during pandemics and create discord and polarized opinions among people on political issues during democratic elections. Adding to this, social media platforms’ algorithms “add salt to the wound” by feeding their users posts which are aligned with their opinion in order to increase their screen time. How serious and how massive is the problem? What are its implications? And what can/should be done about it?

During this forum, organized jointly by the Center for Digital Trust (C4DT), the CyberPeace Institute and the Graduate Institute’s Centre for Trade and Economic Integration (CTEI) in Geneva, we will discuss not only the technological aspects of this phenomena, but also the regulatory role executive and legislative branches of governments should play. Societal, economical and geopolitical implications will also be debated. This event is open to the general public.
