Event description

Description

The U.S. CLOUD Act allows the Attorney General to present, for Congressional review, bilateral "executive agreements," where s/he has certified that potential partner countries meet certain criteria, including regarding human rights. These agreements would allow partner countries to directly request electronic evidence from U.S.-based companies. This has the potential to provide incentives for enhanced rule-of-law and human rights protections in partner countries, as well as to create unintended consequences for users and internet governance.

Join us on September 18th for a discussion featuring several prominent GNI civil society, academic, and company members presenting their perspectives on the potential global implications of the U.S. CLOUD Act. Speakers include:

  • Professor Park Kyung-Sin (K.S. Park), Korea University School of Law (South Korea)
  • Elonnai Hickok, Chief Operating Officer, Center for Internet & Society (India)
  • Patrik Hiselius, Senior Advisor, Digital Rights, Telia Company (Sweden)
  • Jodie Ginsberg, Chief Executive Officer, Index on Censorship (UK)
  • David Bitkower, Partner, Jenner & Block LLP; former Principle Deputy Assistant Attorney General (Criminal Division), U.S. Department of Justice

Light refreshments will be provided. Please kindly RSVP in advance.
