14:00-16:00 – Roundtable with Diplomacy Professionals
Framing a European Internet Governance Science Diplomacy
Presentation: Global internet governance raises specific challenges for diplomacy to make informed choices when faced with multifold digital disruptions, where decisions made at the national or regional level may have a much wider geopolitical impact. Moreover, recent global internet governance institutionalization processes have emphasized important mutations in diplomatic practices. Other global issues such as environment, health, finance or world trade have already opened the way to a renewed interest in science diplomacy, as a means to address complex mutations of the global world politics, which are often characterized by their highly technical nature, but internet governance is surprisingly often neglected or reduced to its cybersecurity dimension in science diplomacy studies Focusing on Europe as a global actor with comparative perspectives from other regions, this roundtable of diplomacy professionals aims at discussing, through some emblematic case studies, whether and how a European internet governance science diplomacy could be framed.
