DIJ researcher Harald Kümmerle will present his paper on „‚Data Free Flow with Trust‘ as a pillar of economic security in the digital realm“ at the conference The Free and Open Indo-Pacific: Japan’s Strategic Vision Goes Global at Oxford University on March 11. Harald’s paper will highlight Japan’s initiative Data Free Flow with Trust (DFFT) as an important aspect of the development of economic security in the digital realm. He will discuss DFFT as a promising regulatory framework for the cross-border flow of non-personal data. One focus of his talk will lie on the data regulation and economic security discourse involving a variety of actors and positions that followed a scandal concerning the access of private data of Japanese social media users by a Chinese subcontractor firm. The two-day conference exploring the Indo-Pacific’s role in global politics is hosted by Oxford University’s Nissan Institute of Japanese Studies. Details here
