Marietje Schaake. Technology, democracy and accountability
This special episode of Policy, Guns & Money features an excerpt from a recent ASPI webinar with international cyber expert Marietje Schaake on technology, democracy and the question of accountability.
Marietje joined Fergus Hanson for a conversation on the challenges that technologies create for and how democracies can work together amidst rising authoritarianism to better regulate technologies. They discussed the proliferation of surveillance tools available on the free market, including Pegasus spyware, and the need for companies to move away from a values agnostic approach to a human rights centred approach to business.
Marietje is the International Policy Director at Stanford University’s Cyber Policy Center. She is also International Policy Fellow at Stanford’s Institute for Human-Centered Artificial Intelligence and President of the Cyber Peace Institute.
