Abstract

In this final chapter, we introduce alternative scenarios concerning tech giants, the US and Chinese states, data governance and innovation under the current governance regime. On this basis, we advance policy recommendations and calls for activism aiming at a less polarized future where technology is guided toward collectively solving societal, ecological and health challenges. We elaborate on why there is a need for new forms of governance that take into account the growing importance of global digital public goods as well as the need for new forms of public access to science and technology. We end by applying a global perspective pointing to major dilemmas between what can be done under existing governance regimes and what should be done in the long term.
