Tech Diplomacy and the Futures of Diplomacy

Maison de la Paix, Petal 2, Auditorium A1B

Digital technologies have become a defining feature of contemporary world affairs. This brings a set of new opportunities and challenges for governments and tech companies in the pursuit of their strategic priorities.

For instance, how should governments and private companies structure themselves to engage in diplomacy? How can a productive exchange be created? How can the emerging field of technology diplomacy lead to tangible results? How can the international Geneva bring a broader diversity of actors to the discussion table?

On the occasion of WSIS and the AI4Good Summit, join our panel discussion, in collaboration with Geneva Policy Outlook, with two world-renowned technology diplomacy practitioners who will tackle those questions.
