Revolution in Technology and Social Stability: Responsibility of Business and the State

List of speakers

Club-2035 will hold an open discussion about the social consequences of accelerated technological development and the role of the state and business in maintaining social stability.

On March 15, 2016, at 4.30 pm, Club-2035 - a joint project of the Valdai Discussion Club and the Russian Venture Company (RVC), created to discuss the socio-economic and socio-political challenges of the accelerated technological development to Russia and the world until 2035 – will hold an open discussion titled "Revolution in technology and social stability: Responsibility of business and the state." The discussion will take place within the framework of the Russian Business Week, a key event of the Russian Union of Industrialists and Entrepreneurs (RSPP).

The technological revolution, combined with a new stage of globalization (emphasis on the interests of individual countries, aggravation of competition and regionalization of economic ties) create new business conditions. The role of states as regulators is growing again. There are serious challenges to social stability due to the increased use of "inhuman" technologies and the likely decline of employment. On the one hand, the state requires a much higher efficiency from the private sector, on the other hand, the assistance in mitigating social problems.
