On Friday, March 17, 2023, from 10 am to 6 pm CET, the Sciences Po Law School’s Towards a Digital Rule of Law Initiative and the Datasphere Initiative, with the Aapti Institute and the Ostrom Workshop organized a conference on data governance: “Responsibly unlocking the value of data for all: Moving beyond the battle of narratives”.
This event was divided into two core blocks. A morning session that addressed and compared the different governmental approaches to data governance, from Europe, the US, Japan, and India, as well as the discussions taking place in international fora, such as the G7, G20, and the OECD.
The afternoon session, in turn, explored innovative efforts by a variety of actors to create operational data-sharing frameworks and some of the practical challenges they are faced within that context.
A final wrap-up session examined how the international debate could be reframed, to help actors focus on what is actually their common challenge: how to responsibly unlock the value of data for all.
The conference was interactive and provided an opportunity for participants to share their feedback and contributions, in a round table format.
