‘Policy Meets Tech’ initiative was launched at the US Permanent Mission to the UN in Geneva. This initiative includes series of briefings for diplomats in Geneva with the aim to:

  • unpack the complex world of digital technologies,
  • understand what they can and cannot do, and
  • explore their policy implications in a way that is relevant and actionable for diplomats.

From internet protocols to quantum computing, and from cryptography to algorithms, discussions will dive deep into the technical workings of these technologies, their real-world applications, and the policy opportunities and challenges they raise.
