Professor Chander Speaks on Internet Surveillance at Stanford

On November 11, Professor Anupam Chander spoke at Stanford University's Shorenstein Asia-Pacific Research Center, a part of the Freeman-Spogli Institute for International Studies. His talk was titled, "China, India, and the Electronic Silk Road: How Surveillance Undermines Commerce." 

The lecture compared the rise of China and India as Internet superpowers. Professor Chander argued that surveillance states undermine the trust that Internet commerce relies upon.

Sunny Seong-hyon Lee, Pantech Fellow at Stanford University Shorenstein Asia-Pacific Research Center, wrote about the talk for the Chinese media, in a piece titled (in translation) "Why China Has Not Become a Services Superpower."

Professor Anupam Chander is a leading scholar in the law of globalization and digitization, and has written widely on international law and cyber law.  He is also Director of the California International Law Center at King Hall.
