Orangery Sanssouci, Potsdam
Strategic Working Group on European Digital Strategic Autonomy at the M100 SANSSOUCI COLLOQUIUM 2022, “War and Peace. A New World Order”
Every September, the international media conference M100 Sanssouci Colloquium in Potsdam brings together around 100 representatives of traditional, established and young, independent, democratic media from all over Europe and beyond to discuss together with representatives from politics and science current socio-political developments and tendencies and the role and influence of the media in international affairs.
The aim of the 18th M100 Sanssouci Colloquium is a constructive, intersectoral conversation about the prospects for a free, democratic Europe in the face of a new world order and what role the media play.
In the changing international security and economic landscape, the notions of ‘sovereignty’ and ‘autonomy’ have been acquiring an unprecedentedly centrality in EU political and policy agendas. ‘Strategic autonomy’ has already become the dominant conceptual framework setting the EU’s long-term development. Another critical field is the digital domain, which is a lever for the fourth industrial revolution, while at the same time an international battlefield of its own.
The increasing digitalisation of our societies, affecting both private and public interests, is a major factor in shaping Europe’s future. This Strategic Working Group will be focusing on how the EU can shape a long-term strategy for Digital Strategic Autonomy (DSA) to strengthen its position in the international digital domain of tomorrow, to complement the security aspect of ‘Strategic autonomy’, and to redefine its relationship with allies and rivals.
