Global issues dialogues
The UK-China Global Issues Dialogue Centre conducts several dialogues at Jesus College Cambridge each year. These bring together leading figures from across the world involved in civil society, politics, business, academia and global institutions, to discuss and develop potential ways of tackling issues of worldwide significance.
Our first dialogue addressed the issue of developing multilateral solutions for global governance of the information and communications technology industry. Hosted at Jesus College in October 2019, it brought together a rich mix of participants drawn from academia, business, policy institutes, and international organisations to examine the growing challenges associated with the governance of international communications and data infrastructure and develop proposals for innovative, multilateral solutions.
Topics for 2021-22 include Engaging with China on Climate Change: Towards a Blueprint for the Future.
The Centre is committed to contributing to public debate and policy formulation by disseminating a summary of its dialogues (unattributed to individual participants) and the findings and proposal which emerge to a wide audience.
The first of these is a white paper, Multilateral Solutions for Global Governance of the Information and Communications Technology Industry.
