Promotion of international data governance
This measure is intended to ensure that Switzerland advocates a comprehensive data policy discussion at the international level and contributes its principles and values.
While data policy discussions are already held at the international level, they tend to be highly specific to certain institutions and topics. There are no processes or bodies for discussing on a broader scale how data should be handled and how it can contribute to promoting innovation and enabling a sustainable and fair society, with due regard for digital self-determination.
In the absence of such processes, there is an increased risk of regulatory fragmentation in relation to data policy.
