Governance in international organizations - Potentials and pitfalls for digitalization

Panel discussion

International organizations, such as the World Trade Organization, hold a central role on the global stage and thus play a significant part in shaping our daily lives. A prime example is the 1998 moratorium on customs duties for electronic transmissions. This agreement has enabled digital goods and services to be traded globally without tariffs, which could be used to modulate the development of digital societies across the world. 

This panel seeks to unravel often impenetrable aspects of international negotiations and affairs. We bring together insiders from these organizations and researchers specializing in digital transformation to delve into the inner workings of international relations. The discussion will explore the potentials and pitfalls of digitalization for international governance.
