Topics

  • Internet Technologies and The Way Governments Are Tackling Them
     

This session at the IBA Annual Conference Vienna 2015 will look at a wide range of up to date issues about the internet and its development. As a means of communication and a way of doing business, the internet has revolutionized how the world's population interacts. It has spawned a whole host of technology 'giants' and has disrupted a range of traditional industries and how governments around the world function. 'Owning' these developments is on the agenda of many institutions and organizations - but how will internet governance develop given the competing priorities of governments, corporations and individuals? Who, if anyone, should be trusted to look after cyberspace for the benefit of all and police its content?

During this International Bar Association (IBA) Annual Conference session, Heidi Lawson is speaking on, "Internet Technologies and The Way Governments Are Tackling Them."
