AI, Democracy, and the Global Order

Delivering sustainable economic growth
May 30, 2023 | Observer Research Foundation

Technologies likes AI will have a substantial impact on fundamental rights and freedoms, human relationships, the issues humans care about, and their most dearly held beliefs. With their feedback loops and reliance on data, AI models exacerbate existing biases and strain many countries’ already tenuous social contracts. In their article for the Observer Research Foundation, Manual Muniz and Samir Saran argue that for decades, international policymakers have treated technology as a “sectoral” matter best left to energy, finance, or defense ministries. The sudden arrival of ground-breaking AI tools now creates an urgent need for a more holistic approach to tech governance, also at the global level.
