Thomas Struett is research director at the Digital Trade and Data Governance Hub, where he currently directs the Global Data Governance Mapping Project. The project examines how some 50 nations use laws, regulations and other binding acts of state to govern various types of data (public, private and personal data) at the national and international levels. It is the first such mapping. Information on the project can be found at https://datagovhub.elliott.gwu.edu/the-global-data-governance-mapping-project/.
