On 7 December (9-11 CET), the LeidenAsiaCentre together with GLOBTAXGOV and the Economic Research Institute for ASEAN and East Asia (ERIA), organizes a webinar on Asian-European cooperation in the digital sphere. The webinar will specifically focus on the building of inclusive digital societies. This means that individuals, particularly those in disadvantaged groups, have access to, and the skills to use, ICT and are therefore able to participate in and benefit from the emergent digital society. In which ways can Asia and Europe cooperate in creating inclusive digital societies? What forms of cooperation between Asian and European countries already exist in the digital sphere?
This webinar follows the 13th Asia-Europe Meeting (ASEM) Summit, and the book “Multilateral Cooperation for a Resilient, Sustainable, and Rules-Based Future for ASEM”, that was a result of that summit.
