Webinar is organized by the Digital Trade & Data Governance Hub (DataGovHub), Elliott School of International Affairs, George Washington University (US)

Following a series of webinars, kicked off from the beginning of 2020, the DataGovHub opened registrations for its first webinar of 2021 discussing big data governance. In this one-hour webinar, two speakers will present different visions of data governance and describe strategies to address individual and collective harms.

The webinar will take the format of a debate: each speaker will have 8 minutes to present their position and up to 4 minutes each to respond to the other speaker statements. A moment for Q&A will follow with free participation from the public. The event will be hosted on Zoom, starting on Friday, January 22, at 11am (Washington D.C local time). Only those who complete the registration form will receive the link to participate.

The speakers of Friday’s workshop are Martin Tisné, Managing Director of Luminate, a global philanthropic organisation; and Janet Haven, Executive Director of Data & Society, an independent nonprofit research institute.
