On April 6th, Mihai Ivascu, CEO and Founder of Modex, will be one of the speakers at Interoperable Governance Summit – Earth 2030 @FutureLaw, an invitation-only online working session organized by CodeX: The Stanford Center for Legal Informatics, in association with the Stanford CodeX Blockchain Group, Stanford Journal of Blockchain Law and Policy, the Tech4Good Project, and the MIT Computational Law Report.

Focused on collective sense-making, knowledge, and skill-sharing around critical digital technologies and their role in supporting global policy-makers and community-leaders, Interoperable Governance Summit – Earth 2030 will gather around 80 decision makers. Because of the Covid-19 pandemic and the restrictions imposed by authorities, the summit will take place online.

Mihai Ivascu, Modex CEO and Founder, will be one of the speakers at ‘The Future of Blockchain Ethics’ session, moderated by Reuben Youngblom (Stanford). Alongside Mihai, Ridge Barker (Withers), Prof. Raina Haque (Wake Forrest Law), Rhys Lindmark (Bentoism, formerly MIT Digital Currency Initiative) and Rebecca Rettig (FisherBroyles) will also be on stage, touching upon several topics. Commenting on the event, Ivascu stated: “I am looking forward to speaking alongside like-minded leaders and sharing our knowledge to the audience. I’m sure it will be an interesting event, packed with relevant info and valuable insights from the industry.”

The summit will commence with a focus on immediate, near term research and projects that are currently putting in place legal and technical governance standards to enable coordination and the sharing of data to address urgent pandemic-response needs. A key issue is how to balance unprecedented surveillance capabilities with the preservation of privacy and civil liberties, which if preserved, can encourage the trust that promotes sharing and compliance.

Speakers will be engaging with some of the tools of scenario planning and world-building to look at how these developing frameworks for coordinated action and interoperable governance can apply also to ongoing research and projects, including around climate action and financial regulation. During the event, leading thinkers will focus on what future role will be played by both legal professionals and legally engineered tools, such as automated legal entities.

“These are unprecedented times. Our context seems to change each day, as more of the world enters enforced isolation, and as we witness our friends, families, and communities fall victim to the virus, and its psychological and economic fallout. As lawyers, policy-makers, technologists, and community-leaders, working together, we can learn from one another and help build the capacity to be responsive and resilient in these uncertain times, via coordinated governance frameworks that enable collaboration between diverse groups, in both urgent, and longer-term service of the common good”, state the event’s organizers.
