"How can corporations ensure human rights in the Metaverse"
Are we looking back to the 17th-18th century East India Company for clues in order to visualise regulations in the Metaverse?
In this episode of Regulatory Ramblings Briefs, Dr. Kuzi Charamba, a Postdoctoral Fellow at HKU’s Faculty of Law, speaks to host Ajay Shamdasani about his paper entitled “Beyond The Corporate Responsibility to Respect Human Rights In The Dawn Of A Metaverse”.
They discuss the need for regulators and policymakers to be more forward-looking rather than reactive in terms of regulation of and governance in a Metaverse; the possibility for global harmonization of rules in this new realm; how to govern multiple, disconnected Metaverses; the dichotomy between one’s physical and digital personality, and how to set up appropriate governance systems for that.
