Dr Christopher Foster published on the LSE international development blog
A recent blog post has been published on the LSE International Development blog written by Dr Christopher Foster (The Information School) and Dr Shamel Azmeh (LSE). The post entitled 'New Trade Conflicts and the Race for Technological Leadership in the Digital Economy' considers how laws, technologies and trading rules shape the Internet. It discusses the emergence 'digital industrial policy' in middle income countries and consequently how new trade deals such as the Trans Pacific Partnership (TPP) are attempting to reshape digital information flows and digital data.
