FP Virtual Dialogue: The New Geopolitics of Data

October 6, 2020

Emerging markets, privacy protections & global leadership in the digital economy

Rapid advances in AI and big data are transforming how governments and industries operate and interact on a global scale. The ability to access and make sense of vast amounts of data offers great competitive advantage in the digital economy. As emerging markets are pursuing new policies to position themselves as digital powers, they are also creating new data privacy regulations: What will those new rules mean for global partnerships and multinational companies? Is a new data arms race brewing? 

Foreign Policy, in partnership with Microsoft, convened an expert international panel to examine the new geopolitics of data and its corporate and policy implications as emerging markets are making a foray into the digital economy. Gain an inside look at evolving data regimes and the role that Europe and the United States can play as the world approaches a new wave of data and privacy regulations.

Learn more in FP Analytics’ Data Governance Power Map series, which examines the emerging laws, regulations, and technologies that are both enabling greater data collection and impacting cross-border data flows.
