Moderated by @NaghmaSahar. Participate in the conversation with #Raisina2021 #RaisinaDialogue
.@NagmaSahar: The pandemic struck at the roots of global order which many believe was already falling. Pre-pandemic global trends seemed redundant. #Raisina2021
.@NagmaSahar: The withering of the pre-pandemic global order is epitomised by the failure of the WHO to play a global leadership role during the pandemic. Other than the WHO, the UN and organisations like the WTO are also struggling for contemporary relevance. #Raisina2021

.@vestager: When it comes to #digitaltech, we have been timid as democracies and societies to say it should serve humans like any other tech. Regulation ensures that services are delivered in a way that can be trusted, and keeps the market open and contestable #Raisina2021
.@vestager: In democracies, the debate among politicians and citizens should be the real debate, not fragmented, manipulated debates that drive the world apart #Raisina2021

#RaisinaEdit | If “Data is the New Oil” then our individual data has intrinsic value and, thus, the monetisation of the collective data of millions of our citizens is the proverbial gold mine, says Abdul Hakeem Ajijola: or-f.org/85352
Economic interdependence, imperatives of political geography, and Beijing’s successful elite capture in many societies have made it difficult for many in Asia to contest the unfolding Chinese dominance over the region, points out @MohanCRaja #RaisinaEdit: or-f.org/85281

.@priyankac19: There is a dichotomy that exists in India. We are on the right track in terms of our climate goals. But we still have 1.7 million deaths attributed to air pollution. 17 of our 20 metro cities are among the worst polluted in the world. #Raisina2021
.@lordstern1: The loss of life every year from air pollution in India is at least five times the total loss from COVID. This is immense. And the immensity of it is not really sufficiently understood.
