Sovereign Law in a Changing World
Strengthening technological sovereignty is a key objective for the Russian government. It should provide a substantial opportunity to rapidly meet targets and fulfil goals in relation to socioeconomic development, security, and other areas through the development, introduction, and use of technology. Fostering innovation in the tech sector is also key in this regard. What kind of regulatory framework is needed to secure a nation’s technological sovereignty? What legal regimes need additional work to bring them up to the required level? How can law be leveraged in the technology race?
