    1. The government leaders or ministers who meet as the T-12 would also have a unique opportunity to enlist the private sector and international organizations in their work. Annual meetings could serve as an arena for business leaders to join government officials in coordinating responses to emerging issues such as the need to improve remote-learning technology in response to the COVID-19 pandemic and what the future of counterterrorism might look like. The format for these meetings could include issue-based sessions, in which governments invite leading private-sector figures for focused discussions, or standing forums akin to the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation’s Business Advisory Council, which provides advice to Pacific Rim leaders on concerns facing businesses throughout the region. The T-12 could also develop working groups and committees on the multistakeholder model, which brings together representatives from business, civil society, government, and research institutions. These groups would then pass recommendations up to ministers and principals. Simultaneously, leaders could collaborate with other multilateral organizations—working with NATO on AI security, for instance, or with the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development on the industrial implications of disruptive technologies. 

      Suggestions of governance mechanisms for a T-12. ||Jovan||

    1. Uber and Lyft began to demand as much as 20% off each ride, all while drivers were paying their own car expenses. And when these apps realized that they needed larger fleets to compete, they started recruiting low-income, often immigrant drivers with false promises of the American dream.

      To put in perspective together with Proposition 22 that is being voted in California on the gig economy (e.g. turn Uber drivers into employees).

    1. This article is important for Diplo for the following reasons:

      • growing relevance of digital economy for governance and policy will requie us to improve our coverage of digital economy and finance.
      • an interplay governments-companies will be crucial for understanding future digital developments.
      • need to improve our understanding and research in the field of digital finance.

      What can we do? This 'lifting' will be part of my (JovanK) 'sandbox' approach where I will try to map our existing human and tech resources and in a short time bring our coverage of these issues on the higher level.

      How ti will be done

      • gain full understanding of economic indicators that we will follow, including how often we have to follow them (just-in-time, monthly, quaterly, annually). JovanNj, who is economist by training will organise presentation for us.
      • after we identify economic parametars to follow we will re-organise our existing resources and identify new resources where we can find them (especially resources that we have to follow just-in-time)
      • start integration into our research (I am drafting article on an interplay between economic parameters and governance), web-services (DW, comparison softare), courses, etc.

    1. There has never been a better time to invest in European tech companies with new digital hubs growing everywhere from Sofia to Lisbon to Katowice.  We have the people, the ideas and the strength as a Union to succeed. And this is why we will invest 20% of NextGenerationEU on digital. We want to lead the way, the European way, to the Digital Age: based on our values, our strength, our global ambitions.

      Creating European champions, with European values justifying increase in funding.
