The Working Group on Law and Technology (WGLT) operates at the intersection of law and technology, debating and researching cross-cutting issues such as ethics, public policy, and regulation of emerging technologies (Artificial Intelligence, Blockchain, 3D Printing, Virtual and Augmented Reality, IoT, etc.).
Within this Working Group, we strive to
- strengthen and promote a better understanding of the role of law and technology in sustainable development through multi-stakeholder dialogue and collaboration;
- better integrate the legal approach, access to justice, rule of law and technology in the development process in order to shed light on the most important legal and regulatory developments in this field;
- encourage the co-generation of innovative legal solutions and practices to law and technology, such as policy labs;
- support knowledge dissemination by creating a forum for knowledge exchange and knowledge co-creation; and
- encourage inclusive partnerships built upon shared principles, values, and vision.
WGLT works in a multi-stakeholder context, bringing together governments, innovators, investors, business companies, civil society, scientists and all other actors passionate about justice, innovation and law to share knowledge, discuss ways forward, and engage in alliances and partnerships to accelerate our response to keep up with the pace of today’s rapid technological changes.
