Description & Coverage
Description:

Digital disintermediation, or the elimination of “middle-men” in a traditional market setting, has had profound effects on global economies. The rise of peer-to-peer networks and decentralized marketplaces has also led to some market destabilization, and the discussion on data sovereignty and privacy challenges raises concerns surrounding business in the digital age. Digital Technologies, Ethics, and Decentralization in the Digital Era is a research-based book which boldly tackles a myriad of ethical dilemmas, including bias, privacy, and inclusivity, and advocates for a future where digital access is fair and equitable.

Academic scholars and industry professionals will embark on an enlightening journey through the digital revolution's transformative power. This book delves into the very core of digital technologies, shedding light on their role as catalysts for decentralization and de-globalization. Readers will gain invaluable insights into how these technologies disrupt established systems, paving the way for innovative alternatives. The exploration of blockchain and decentralized finance shines a light on how individuals and communities can harness technology to empower themselves, reshaping the dynamics of power in an increasingly interconnected world.

As readers engage with the thought-provoking content of this book, they will be inspired to envision a world where international cooperation and diplomacy are reshaped by technology. The final chapters explore the potential for digital diplomacy and multilateral approaches to address global challenges in a decentralized, de-globalized era. By the end of this comprehensive journey, scholars will be equipped with the knowledge and insights needed to not only understand the digital revolution's impact but also actively contribute to shaping its future trajectory. Digital Technologies, Ethics, and Decentralization in the Digital Era is the compass scholars need to thrive in this digital age, offering a compelling roadmap for understanding, adapting to, and influencing the course of this ongoing revolution.
