India’s digital stack — a combination of biometric IDs, digital payments, and data exchanges — has already had a transformative effect within the country on commerce, social and economic inclusion and the relationship between citizen and state. As a growing number of countries consider adopting elements of the stack, India’s technological innovation is emerging as an essential part of the nation’s efforts to project soft power in a multipolar world.
This panel discussion will surface the key opportunities and risks posed by India’s stack, as well as investigate how we might need to redesign governance to manage this new infrastructure. The event is part of a larger project on DPIs and will feature a short primer on the stack followed by an interactive discussion featuring an inter-disciplinary set of panelists.
The event will be moderated by Mihir Kshirsagar (clinic lead, CITP, Princeton) and Akash Kapur (senior fellow, The GovLab, NYU).
