The United States, China, and the European Union are racing to regulate tech companies. Each market is advancing a competing vision for the digital economy while attempting to expand its sphere of influence in the digital world. The latest book by Professor Anu Bradford, Digital Empires: The Global Battle to Regulate Technology (Oxford University Press, 2023) explores how governments and tech companies navigate the inevitable conflicts that arise when these different regulatory approaches collide in the international domain. Please join us for an engaging in-person discussion of Digital Empires and the choices we face as societies and individuals, the forces that shape those choices, and the huge stakes involved for everyone who uses digital technologies.
