Technology Under Control

Implications of US and EU Domestic Tech Policies on Climate Change, Transatlantic Ties, and the Global South

The US and EU in recent years have made commitments to domestic production of advanced technologies like semiconductors. The US has also extended limits on overseas investment and export of those technologies while the EU considers stronger coordination on technology controls. The policies are, in part, aimed at China, but they have broad impacts on the transatlantic relationship, the Global South, and the fight against climate change. In a series of briefs, experts examine what the emphasis on onshoring means for critical minerals and the global supply chain, why export controls are a bad fit for clean technology, and why the US and EU should align investment control policies.
