Can Liberty Survive the Digital Age?

March 20th - March 21st

Alexanderstraße 11, 10178 Berlin, Germany

The Internet was supposed to unify us… but has that happened? In a world filled with cyber hacks, communication silos and government surveillance, can liberty really survive the digital age?

This forum will explore digital technologies in the information age, with a careful eye to how different countries and sectors approach the balance between risks, benefits and fundamental rights.

Topics include privacy and human rights vs. security; vulnerabilities vs. efficiencies posed by the Internet of Things; communication silos and spread of false news vs. unfiltered and open access information; access (denied) to the digital world; and a vision for global cooperation.

Digital technology pervades citizens’ daily lives. It is imperative to step back and consider how we can govern the Information Society in a way that truly serves a worldwide interest.
