Geneva, Switzerland


The first edition of the 'UNIGE – UNOG Conversations with Academia' on the topic, 'Global Digital Governance: what role for Geneva?' will take place on 5 October, in Geneva, Switzerland. The event is being organised by the The University of Geneva (UNIGE), United Nations Office at Geneva (UNOG), the Knowledge and Learning Commons, a service by the UN Library Geneva, and the Centre for Learning and Multilingualism.

As digital technologies continue to evolve around the globe, they also bring questions on how they can be governed. The challenges of global digital governance are complex, multifaceted, and transversal and transnational by nature. Thanks to the privileged experience in global multilateral discussions and norm-setting activities of the international community based in Geneva, this community can significantly contribute to the debates about global digital governance, and help shape the future of our digital society.

The 30-minute lecture will be followed by a 30-minute engaging conversation between the attendees and Professor Jacques de Werra (vice-rector of the University of Geneva).
