2024 Technology Governance Policy Challenge

April 19 @ 9:00 am - 11:30 am

The Balsillie School of International Affairs (BSIA), in collaboration with the School of International Service (SIS) at the American University in Washington, D.C. is pleased to host the first Technology Governance Policy Challenge for BSIA and SIS students. This unique challenge, hosted over two days, offers an opportunity for students to engage with critical issues in the evolving landscape of technology governance. 

In its inaugural year, the Policy Challenge will feature teams representing the BSIA and SIS. The teams will review a case study authored by BSIA MAGG graduate and AU assistant professor Samantha Bradshaw entitled “Technology Governance Policy Challenge: Combating a Coordinated Disinformation Campaign.”  

The teams will prepare a two-page policy brief, which will be submitted to the judges prior to the event. The teams will then present their findings during the event with feedback from the judges.  

This year the judges will include: 

Tara Denham, Global Affairs Canada
James Hinton, Own Innovation and CIGI Fellow
Wesley Wark, BSIA and CIGI Fellow

The BSIA community is invited to watch the final presentations and award ceremony. Please register below to attend.

The Technology Governance Policy Challenge is an integral part of the broader Technology Governance Initiative launched by the BSIA in late 2023.
