Anita Gurumurthy and Deepti Bharthur responded to a call for papers on Global AI Governance by UN Tech Envoy’s office for the first meeting of the Multistakeholder Advisory Body on AI in September 2023.
This paper builds on some key threads from a roundtable on ‘Reframing AI governance through a political economy lens’, convened in June 2023 by IT for Change and the Transnational Institute. The hybrid event brought together scholars, activists, and practitioners to examine the building blocks of a transformative approach to AI governance. The discussions, which are summarized in this paper and extended upon, engage with many of the questions outlined in the UN Tech envoy’s call for papers on Global AI Governance towards informing the preparation for the first meeting of the Multistakeholder Advisory Body on AI.
