Several jurisdictions from the U.S. to the U.K., from China to Japan, in addition to the AI Act in EU law or Canada’s AIDA, aim all to govern and regulate uses and models of AI. Although international institutions have been active, e.g., the Council of Europe’s AI Committee, a fiery competition among regulatory systems has followed as a result. Such competition also affects the fields of privacy and data protection. The aim of this panel is to discuss current trends in the governance and legal regulation of AI through the lens of comparative law. The dynamics of legal transplants, influence and receptions draws the attention to either matters of legal power, e.g., the extra-territoriality clauses of a certain legislation; or, a de facto effect that concerns changes in practices, products, and services offered in foreign jurisdictions; down to the ways in which national or international legislations may represent a reference point for the rest of the world by affecting or inspiring further regulations of other countries.

  • Is there any new Brussels effect at hand?
  • Is the U.S. 2023 Executive Order a game changer? 
  • Any lessons learned from China’s regulations of AI?
  • Is the strength of Japan’s soft law exportable?
