On 29 May 2020, Postdoctoral Fellow Neha Mishra spoke on ‘International Trade Law: Implications for Data Governance’ on a public webinar organised by Ikigai Law, a leading technology law firm based in India. The session focussed on the growing incidence of privacy and cybersecurity measures that impede trans-border flows of digital data, and the ways that international trade rules could be applied to discipline such measures. In particular, Dr Mishra spoke on the role of the exceptions in international trade agreements in balancing trade liberalisation goals with internet policy goals. This session also highlighted the role of international trade agreements in promoting good internet governance and the political economy of data localisation measures, especially in India.
