Webinar of the Members of the German Bundestag Tobias Bacherle and Armand Zorn and the BMZ

On June 20th 2023 from 11:00am – 12:30pm CEST, the Members of Parliament Armand Zorn (Social Democrats) and Tobias Bacherle (Greens) together with the German Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ) are hosting an online webinar on “The necessity of value-driven regulations for a fair digital transformation”.

This webinar was the last session of the webinar series on digitalization in development cooperation and participants were invited to share their expertise and perspective in the discussion with the Members of Parliament, the Parliamentary State Secretary at the BMZ, Dr. Bärbel Kofler, as well as anticipated international expert panelists such as Alison Gillwald (CEO, Research ICT Africa), a representative from Smart Africa and local governmental partners.

Together, the opportunities of regulations for a fair digital transformation and the need for harmonized, value-based international regulations were discussed. It also explored the extent to which the EU’s regulatory approaches are relevant and adaptable for countries in the Global South, while conversely we seek to learn from the regulatory approaches of our partner countries in the Global South.
