Former Member of the E.U. Parliament Marietje Schaake, International Director of Policy, Stanford Cyber Policy Center
The Internet knows no borders and the flow of data and applications across the Atlantic has become increasingly intertwined. The 2010s saw the U.S. and E.U. diverge on a range of technology issues, from consumer privacy to online speech. But on this episode of Hearsay Culture, we asked a different question: Do the U.S. and the E.U. have more in common than we think?
In a 2015 interview, Dave and then-European Parliament member Marietje Schaake discuss the technology policies including net neutrality and access to information. Their wide-ranging conversation exposes how these technology directions diverge and align and, ultimately, how they impact democratic institutions throughout the world.
“Hearsay Culture exists to build bridges and have communities, both scholarly and political, discuss and interact in ways they haven’t in the past.” – Marietje Schaake
Our [EU-US] alliance is based on shared values and history. (…) But in a changing global landscape, I believe it is time for a new transatlantic agenda fit for today’s world” – Ursula Von Der Leyen, President of the European Commission
