With a seeming shift away from multilateralism to a more accentuated focus on national interests both in Europe and the US, the implications for the future of the internet are significant. During this roundtable, Carl Bildt, the chair of the Global Commission on Internet Governance, will share his views about how the future relationship between the US and Europe may affect issues such as privacy, surveillance, trade, and human rights as it relates to the internet.

Attendance at this event is by invitation only.
