Power of law or law of power? Why we need European leadership in governing technology globally
How can we help turn the European Union into a global technology governance power? Why will norms and standards be the silver bullet of tomorrow’s EU in the world? How can we guarantee that fundamental and human rights are observed throughout digital space, and how can we make artificial intelligence democracy’s best friend?
On 19 September 2019, we welcome Marietje Schaake, a renowned pioneer of European tech politics and former Member of the European Parliament, at the MAK – Museum of Applied Arts in Vienna.
Marietje Schaake’s lecture on the nexus of democracy and the digital world will be followed by a conversation on stage with Lucy Bernholz, Senior Research Scholar at Stanford University’s Center on Philanthropy and Civil Society, Joanna Goodey, Head of Freedoms and Justice Department at the European Union Agency for Fundamental Rights in Vienna, Krzysztof Izdebski, Policy Director at the ePaństwo Foundation in Warsaw, Thomas Lohninger, Managing Director of epicenter.works in Vienna and Verena Ringler, Curator of the Tipping Point Talks.
Location: MAK – Museum of Applied Arts, Stubenring 5, 1010 Wien
