Platform for Dialogue

The Dialogue Program fosters global, regional, cross-sectoral, and multistakeholder dialogue around data and the governance of the Datasphere.

The Datasphere Dialogues consist of leading the organization of seminars, roundtables, consultations, and partnerships across the globe, in order to identify knowledge gaps and needs, map and assess cases, practices, and regional norms that impact data governance and create local hubs of data governance expertise which can also collaborate across borders. 

The Datasphere Dialogues seek to engage systematically with stakeholders in Europe and North America, due to their prominent role and extraterritorial effects of their actions, but will count with a special focus on the Global South and sustainability challenges, supporting local and regional empowerment and leadership on Data Governance. 

In addition to global dialogues, it consists of both structured regional efforts in Africa, Latin America and the Caribbean and Asia.
