Festsaal University of Bonn (3G), Regina-Pacis-Weg 3, 53113 Bonn
and Stream via Zoom

The global pursuit of digitalization confronts states with both opportunities and challenges on the international stage. On the one hand, technological progress opens up new bilateral and multilateral cooperation opportunities; on the other, it also poses challenges, particularly in the form of changing global power dynamics.
Key Pousttchi, expert in the field of digitization and digital transformation and Director of the wi-mobile Institute for Digital Transformation, will join former members of the U.S. House of Representatives Loretta Sanchez and Charles Boustany to discuss how to keep pace with digital progress while shaping a forward-looking foreign policy. The discussion will be moderated by Scott Robbins, Research Fellow at CASSIS and founder of “Responsible Robotics”.
