Metaverse Policy Lab and France Meta Association host Metaverse Dialogue: A Metaverse Constitution?

Metaverse Policy Lab and France Meta Association host Metaverse Dialogue: A Metaverse Constitution?

Yesterday, the second session of the Metaverse Dialogue webinar series took place and focused on the role of regulations, risks and opportunities, for a better metaverse development and deployment. Our 3 speakers, Emmanuel Moyrand, Pierre Paperon and Dex Hunter-Torricke shared their views on topics such as the status of regulation of present platforms and technologies, how this may affect upcoming metaverse regulation, and how we map the future, concentrating on collaboration and coordination between various technologies.

Panellists echoed the message about the importance of education and cooperation between different stakeholders, to create an overarching metaverse policy. While existing regulations may be useful to be translated into this new digital reality, others will need to evolve, and that’s where the real challenge is. Companies leading the path in this subject will have to increase their efforts to self-regulate themselves while ensuring a high degree of transparency that allows confidence and build trust among users and regulators. Governments interested in fostering the evolution of these new platforms, will have to ensure three key things: “Educate users – protect them – build trust”.

Therefore, the future of this new digital reality relies mainly in the cooperation and dialogue of the different stakeholders from public and private sector.

We will be continuing these discussions tomorrow through Session 3: Digital Identity and Session 4: Interoperability.
