IAPP Asia Privacy Forum 2022
July 18, 2022

Global, multistakeholder and cross-sectoral debate on data is needed to bring nuance and common understanding to the opportunities and challenges that arise when dealing with our interconnected Datasphere. But most importantly, innovative approaches and concepts are indispensable regarding the tools and governance frameworks we rely on.

This session discussed how the concepts “Data Sovereignty” and “Free Flow of Data” drive local, regional and international policy debates on data, and explained how to prevent this detrimental polarisation and bridge sectoral siloed processes. Panellists reviewed ways to ensure that existing and future national and international data governance frameworks are effective in promoting trust, and illustrated how diverse stakeholders, particularly from the Global South, can collaborate to build interoperable and common solutions to data governance challenges. Additionally, they explored the innovative tools and approaches that can enhance the governance of data and the Datasphere.

What you got to learn: 

  • Why a debate that is global, multistakeholder and across sectors is needed.
  • Why discussion on data needs to be reframed to ensure that this complex and novel issue is addressed in a much more nuanced manner.
  • The need to be innovative in the tools, frameworks, and concepts we use to address the issue of data and how the concept of the Datasphere can help move forward.
