In policy, data is far more than a static, specific set of information. Rather, it is a living system of talent, infrastructure, equipment and support technologies. In Trafficking Data: How China is Winning the Battle for Digital Sovereignty, Professor Aynne Kokas navigates various aspects of U.S. and Chinese data policy in a comprehensive, substantive overview. This exciting new book discusses not only the technologies at the heart of an increasingly cutthroat competition, but also the consequences that data trafficking may have on broader societies in Asia and the West.
