(Europe/USA/China) The EU-US Tech Council shouldn’t just focus on China July 20, 2021 (Brookings)

Konstantinos Komaitis and Justin Sherman write for Brookings: President Joe Biden recently toured Europe with a simple message: “America is back.” Following the tumult of the Trump years, Biden attempted to repair frayed ties with U.S. allies and to build consensus on a series of ambitious policy goals: ending the COVID-19 pandemic, fighting climate change, and resolving issues around Big Tech and the internet. Indeed, on both sides of the Atlantic, policymakers are examining how to rein in the power of major technology companies. But despite broad agreement on this basic goal, U.S. and EU internet strategy aren’t as aligned as some politicians might proclaim.
