The International Forum on Digital and Democracy (IFDaD) is a leading international event that brings together prominent thinkers from academia, policy, non-governmental organisations, and other stakeholders to discuss and debate some of the most pressing issues of our time.
The 2022 edition is organised in close cooperation between the partners Associazione Copernicani, Fondazione Luigi Einaudi, Re-Imagine Europa, and SoBigData++. As a follow-up to the debate of the first edition, the Forum will explore and develop the interplay between digital technologies and data, political participation, and governance, with two additional focuses: the implementation of eGovernance and disinformation.
The event will take place in Rome, on November 17th and 18th. Nevertheless, the IFDaD will be also live-streamed and questions from the online participants will be answered. This year’s edition counts with over 30 speakers, including keynote addresses from Věra Jourová, Vice-President of the European Commission, Romano Prodi, former President of the European Commission, former Italian Prime-Minister and co-founder of the IFDaD, Gabriela Ramos, Assistant Director-General for the Social and Human Sciences of UNESCO, Jeffrey Sachs, Director of the Center for Sustainable Development at Columbia University, Roberto Viola, Director-General for Communications Networks, Content and Technology, and Vincenzo Aquaro, Chief of Digital Government at the United Nations.
