CPDP LatAm 2024

Digital Sovereignty in the G20

This event aims at promoting a better understanding of the different facets composing the digital sovereignty debate, from the perspective of G20 members. Panellists will interrogate multiple key issues that constitute the digital sovereignty concept, including cybersecurity, data sovereignty, the use of data and digital technologies to foster individual and national self-determination, the development and implementation of digital public infrastructures, and the emerging weaponisation of digital technologies and data-related laws in a scenario of increasing digital cold war.

This event is organised in the context of CPDP LatAm 2024 and is an official side event of the T20, the group of think thanks of the G20.  The event will take place at FGV Law School, in 190 Praia de Botafogo, Rio de Janeiro, 12th floor.
