TIV conceived and organized a panel discussion on “Using Blockchain and other emerging technologies in the provision of innovative public services in partnership with the World Bank for the “Law, Justice, and Development Week 2019.”
In 2019, the World Bank hosted its annual “Law, Justice, and Development Week” as part of its initiative towards fostering good governance and cultivating an environment that fosters private sector growth, poverty reduction, and equitable development. The overarching theme of the 2019 symposium was Rights, Technology and Development. Accordingly, the World Bank invited more than 200 leaders in law and technology, in addition to 37 Chief justices and Ministers, to be part of a focused discussion on the intersection of human rights and technologies, the legal response to the impacts produced by disruptive technologies, and the legal and ethical implications of new technologies and economic development.
TIV conceived and organized a panel discussion on “Using Blockchain and other emerging technologies in the provision of innovative public services.” The panel discussion was organized by TIV, George Washington University Law School, and the World Bank Global Forum on Law, Justice, and Development. The goal of the invitation-only event was to stimulate discussion on the benefits and pitfalls of emerging technologies, such as Artificial Intelligence and Blockchain, which governments across the globe use to manage public services. The panelists included leaders at the highest levels of government, national organizations, and academia, including Estonia’s Ambassador to the United States, lead researchers of the Inter-American Development Bank, and senior World Bank officials.
