Joint USCIB, BIAC, & OECD Digital Economy Conference
May 25, 2021 @ 9:00 am - 1:00 pm
The second Joseph H. Alhadeff Digital Economy Conference will be held as a virtual event on May 25, 9:00 a.m.-1:00 p.m. EST.
Registration is open through Friday, May 21 and may be accessed here.
The conference, titled “A Decade of OECD Internet Principles: Policy-Making in a Data-Driven World,” will focus on the OECD’s Internet Policy Principles (IPPs), which were adopted in 2011 and have since served as a foundation for the OECD’s evolving work on digital economy issues.
The IPPs calling for global free flow of information and services, multistakeholder participation in policymaking, and consistent and effective privacy protections and cooperation to ensure Internet security, remain salient, recurring underpinnings of the OECD’s digital economy work in 2021. Also important, these themes have been echoed in recent digital economy work of the United Nations, the U.N. Internet Governance Forum other multilateral bodies.
The March 25 virtual conference will consider how the IPPs have been reflected in some of the OECD’s ground-breaking digital work – such as development of the Artificial Intelligence (AI) Principles. We also will consider how the Principles may be employed to address challenges posed by the rapid pace of digital innovation and related changes to the digital ecosystem.
