In December of 2021, the Program on Democracy and the Internet (PDI), in partnership with the Center on Democracy, Development and the Rule of Law (CDDRL) at Stanford University launched a new initiative on Digital Technologies in Emerging Countries: Impacts and Responses (DTEC). Led by Francis Fukuyama and Marietje Schaake, the program seeks to examine and share knowledge about the impact of new technologies on countries in Asia, Africa and Latin America by convening scholars and practitioners whose work focuses on these topics. 

The following year DTEC held a series of workshops designed to focus on these topics, and invited scholars and practitioners with experience in technology policy related fields in Asia, Africa, and Latin America to present and discuss working papers with their peers and leading faculty and scholars at Stanford’s Cyber Policy Center. The result of these workshops is Digital Technologies in Emerging Countries, an edited volume examining questions related to key tech policy issues in emerging economies.
