April 5th, 2017
Time : 3:30 pm – 6:00 pm
Kick Off Event
Location: ESMT Berlin, Schlossplatz 1, 10178 Berlin
The common set of values between Europe and the United States from the basis of our contrat social that guarantees our citizens freedom, equality, democracy, openness, and the rule of law expressed in the U.S. Bill of RIghts and the French Declaration of Human Rights in 1789. In the UN, Bretton Woods institutions, Geneva Convention and NATO, Europe and the U.S. forged an international system based on the shared values. Now these Values must be adapted to the digital age – a sort of contrat social digital.
On the eve of the first G20 Digital Ministers’ Meeting, this conference will launch a joint project to take on this challenge. Join us for high-level discussion and debate aimed at asking the questions, framing the challenges and laying the groundwork for values-driven answers on how to maintain economic prosperity, political legitimacy and international security in the digital century.
