Session teaser

This session allows participants to learn about the most recent findings from REMIT, an ongoing EU Horizon Europe large-scale research project on global technology governance. Discussants from stakeholder groups will comment on, for instance, recent survey results from the Republic of Georgia, an analysis of global Internet constitutionalist discourse, and conceptual work on definitions of "strategic" digital technologies.

Session description

The EU Commission-funded research project "Reignite Multilateralism via Technology" (REMIT) represents a multi-year effort to understand the normative construction, the geopolitics in technology and economic and social aspects of technology governance, particularly digital governance.

The session starts with a short introduction of the project, followed by three dynamic Pecha Kucha style 5-min presentations on initial research results.

The following topics will be addressed in the session:

  • How has discourse on rights and principles changed in global Internet governance debates over the past 30 years? Which discourse coalitions can be found when hand-coding 321 Digital Bills of Rights?
  • How do states approach technology governance nationally and multilaterally? Initial results from a comparative analysis of national strategy documents and state contributions to the consultations for the UN Global Digital Compact.
  • Survey results of a recent digital governance survey in Georgia, here with a focus trust in the EU as a digital governance actors across domains such as cybersecurity, AI development, human rights and privacy/data protection. How well does the EU in comparison to trust in digital governance by the US and China specifically?

REMIT is funded by the European Union’s Horizon Europe Research and Innovation Programme under grant agreement No 101094228.


This flash session will be run as an entertaining PechaKucha style session (15 slides à 30 seconds per presentation) that allows for ample time for discussion by invited discussants and the general audience.
