The Tech Policy Design Centre at The Australian National University (ANU) has launched a major expansion of its world-leading Tech Policy Atlas of global tech regulation.


Spanning vital issues as wide-ranging as privacy and artificial intelligence, the cutting-edge research tool now offers a significantly upgraded user interface, as well as growing from 3,000 to more than 5,000 tech policy records.
 

The latest expansion has also seen the Atlas grow from 36 to 72 jurisdictions, covering every leading tech power and every country in the Indo-Pacific.


The Atlas, released in 2022 and maintained by a team of experts at the Tech Policy Design Centre, provides a one-stop-shop for accessing global regulation and policy documents.

 

"We have embedded technology in our lives before we have embedded considerations of technology in our legal systems and public policy frameworks," Tech Policy Design Centre Director Professor Johanna Weaver said.

 

"As technology and the laws used to regulate it become a core part of our lives, it is crucial for policymakers, researchers and the general public to have a means of easily accessing and exploring the developments in other jurisdictions."

 

The Atlas expansion, which includes new comprehensive searching and sorting features, will ensure vital information is at the fingertips of decision-makers and researchers when they need it.

 

"The Tech Policy Atlas is constantly evolving to ensure it reflects the most up-to-date and comprehensive overview of global tech regulation," Professor Weaver said.

"In addition to the work of the team at the Tech Policy Design Centre, the Atlas also sources contributions from users across the world. Researchers from the Centre review these submissions daily.

"The Atlas is an indispensable resource for anyone working in the field and we encourage everyone to share it.

 

"Better tech policy will help shape better technology. And that is a win for everyone." Access the Tech Policy Atlas online at https://techpolicydesign.au/tech-policy-atlas
