As this year’s Munich Security Conference (MSC) is approaching, the world is expecting an assembly of   senior decision-makers as well as experts from around the world to discuss the various pressing issues of international security policy. The war in Ukraine is served as a trigger to rethink of human security in the post-Pandemic world, while cyber security in the digitalized world is by no means to be ignored. Again, questions like the so-called rule-based international order will be at the center of the discussions in Munich.

The MSC claims to be committed to diversity and sustainability in all forms and is willing to be measured against its very ambitious goals. With the Munich Rule “Engage and interact with each other: Don’t lecture or ignore one another” as the basis of discussion principle, the conference is supposed to anticipate open questions and interactive discussions on and off the stage.

At the backdrop of this year’s MSC, our online forum aims at a related/extended discussion of security issues, including international cooperation in the post-Pandemic concerning data protection, AI vs human rights, digital security and economic development, use of malware, deepfakes and misinformation, and more.

Issues to be discussed include:

  1. International cooperation concerning data protection and human security
  2. Human security in the post-Pandemic digital era
  3. Consequences of governmental use of malware as well as deepfakes
  4. Observation of human security during the Pandemic time under the respective measures and policies ( the EU, the USA and China) – pros and cons
  5. The future of globalization in the digital era and the world economic development
