How to Realize the New Governance Model in the Era of Society 5.0


The power to discipline people's decisions has been shifting from law to code in a society where cyber-space and physical-space are highly integrated ("Society 5.0"). How should laws deal with code in a way that they promote innovation as well as ensure trust in the society? This question is one of the key issues raised in G20 and OECD. In this workshop, leading experts from business, audit, law, government and academia will discuss diversified perspectives on the new governance model for Society 5.0.
