The Digital Trade Integration (DTI) project aims to increase transparency on digital trade restrictions. We are constructing a dataset of digital trade restrictions and an index on digital trade integration, which will be released in the coming months. The methodology is based on international best practices on how to regulate digital trade, leverage the cross-disciplinary exchange between the CIVICA partners.
As part of the DTI project, we have launched a webinar series to feed the methodology of the DTI index. The second webinar will address the contentious issue of cross-border data policies. We will discuss general trends in approaches to cross-border data policies and how the different types of data policies can impact digital trade. The purpose of the discussion is to ensure an accurate measurement of the restrictiveness of cross-border data policies on paper and in practice.
The webinar is chaired by Martina Ferracane (EUI) and will benefit from the contributions of three distinguished speakers:
• Christopher Kuner | Professor and Co-chair of the Brussels Privacy Hub, at the Vrije Universiteit Brussel (VUB)
• Pascal Kerneis | Managing Director at the European Services Forum (ESF)
• Shamira Ahmed | Research ICT Africa (RIA)
