These months will be crucial for the Think20 think tank community to produce policy recommendations in view of the Italian G20 Summit in October. This series of T20-associated events (closed-door and public Roundtables) is intended as an occasion to broaden participation in the T20 by adding new voices of international experts, civil servants, and representatives of the business community. ISPI, the T20 National Coordinator and Chair, and Centre for International Governance Innovation (CIGI) are co-hosting the T20 Associated-event “Digital Technologies: Building Global Trust" in cooperation with the The GovLab and Konrad Adenauer Stiftung (KAS). This Public Event is preceded by a closed-door Workshop by invitation only (see the programme), intended as an occasion to broaden participation in the Task Force (TF) “Digital Transformation”.
Cybercrimes, the spread of fake news, misuse of personal data and digital divides are nurturing mistrust in digital innovation and raising ethical concerns. International and national efforts are needed to build global trust in digital technologies and reap their benefits, while reducing their costs.
How to break the link between digitalisation and inequalities? How to effectively fight cybercrime, protect data and enhance cybersecurity? Which international efforts are needed in the context of the G20 and beyond?
The programme of the event can be found here.

Ispi has always been careful to ensure an inclusive working environment and to be attentive to gender diversity and to the plurality of voices represented in its initiatives. When this is not reflected in one of our publications or events, it is due to the unavailability of the consulted experts to participate or to challenges in identifying specific profiles in our network.
