CANCELLED: Challenges to Democracy in the Digital Age


Please note that this event is cancelled due to inclement weather conditions.

Wednesday, March 21, 2018

9:30 am - 11:00 am at CSIS Headquarters

While the United States and the European Union have different approaches to privacy and data protection, both are critical partners to protecting freedom online. Europe and the United States have faced an escalation of hate speech, terrorist content, fake news, and misinformation online. They both encounter challenges in accessing electronic evidence for investigative purposes and in protecting personal data against cyber attacks. Please join us on Wednesday, March 21 for a timely conversation with H.E. Věra Jourová, EU Commissioner for Justice, Consumers, and Gender Equality, on the EU approach to the challenges democracies face in the digital age. Our subsequent panel will review transatlantic efforts to countering hate speech, misinformation, and protecting personal data.

Featuring

H.E. Věra Jourová, Commissioner for Justice, Consumers, and Gender Equality, European Union

Followed by a panel discussion with

James A. Lewis, Senior Vice President, Technology Policy Program, CSIS
Heather A. Conley, Senior Vice President for Europe, Eurasia, and the Arctic; Director, Europe Program, CSIS
