USER PRIVACY & NATIONAL SECURITY

Day Three offers the opportunity for an in depth look at two key issues impacting on cross-border data flows in the region: privacy and cybersecurity. The first two sessions will offer assessments of national policies in Asia, frameworks being developed within APEC and ASEAN, and positions taken by corporations and governments globally. The final session will center on a debate-format group discussion on possible mechanisms and processes for nurturing a greater consensus across borders on these two issues in Asia, with fellows taking positions for and against greater reliance on corporate responsibility and accountability in the privacy realm and the pros and cons of asserting sovereignty over cyberspace. The evening dinner session will feature informal presentations and discussions with leading Internet business executives in the region.

BUILDING BLOCKS FOR AN INTERNET ECONOMY IN ASIA

Day Five takes a detailed look at policies that are fundamental to building an Internet Economy in Asia. The first session discusses the management of intellectual property, the problem of piracy and examines the new Internet business models are changing the nature of regulation. The second session assesses the challenges of optimizing Internet infrastructure through the lens of net neutrality policies and spectrum allocation rules. The final session provides an introduction to standards policies both national and regional and the choices that are needed to ensure interoperability and keep data flowing. This discussion will be linked to challenges of competition policies in the Internet space and the question of how global services that are offered locally are overseen by national competition authorities.

GOVERNING THE GLOBAL INTERNET ECONOMY

Day Six takes up at the challenge of governing at the Internet Economy and its implications for Asia. The first session reviews recent history and assesses the utility of the “multistakeholder” process. Session XI offers a counterpoint by examining how our experience with trade policy within the WTO and APEC might contribute to rulemaking for the Internet. The closing session will attempt to identify “action items” on the Internet for further discussion in APEC and ASEAN forums and to suggest steps needed to deal with the centrifugal challenges of Internet “fragmentation” in Asia and national claims of cyber sovereignty. The farewell dinner will take place at Gonpachi, the Japanese “izakaya” famed as the setting for a dramatic fight scene in the “Kill Bill” movie series.

Summer Seminar Readings

The 2015 Seminar Readings are intended to provide APRU Faculty and Fellows with background reading materials relevant to the presentations, discussions and workshops on Internet policy issues at the 2015 Summer Seminar. The order of the documents loosely corresponds to the structure of the Seminar, but the readings are not necessarily linked to one session or another. Fellows are encouraged to sample widely from the assembled materials, earmarking ideas, statistics, or assertions that they want to pursue in more depth during the formal sessions of the Seminar.

These readings are in most cases are not “academic.” Rather they are taken from generally available government and think tank reports, corporate sponsored research, newspapers and magazine articles – and even YouTube. Aside from US Secretary Clinton’s 2010 seminal speech on “Internet Freedom” and Minister of the State Internet Office Lu Wei’s 2013 outline of Chinese principles for the Internet, “Liberty and Order in Cyberspace,” most documents have been released over the past year, reflecting the rapid pace of technological change on the Internet and the corresponding need for dynamic policy responses.
