For the rest of the summer Mark Leonard will be breaking from the usual World in 30 Minutes format to talk about how the global order is being challenged. This week, he is joined by Carl Bildt, a former prime minister of Sweden and ECFR's co-chair, to talk about Internet governance and cybersecurity.

Carl argues that Europe is far behind China and the US in terms of internet governance. Data encryption, free flow of date and regulation of state surveillance: EU countries definitely have a busy schedule ahead.
