In his paper-based PhD Dissertation, entitled 'Towards a Global Governance Regime for Artificial Intelligence: Regulating a General-Purpose Technology', Matthijs Maas explores (1) how new developments in AI may strengthen or erode existing international law instruments both conceptually, operationally, or politically; and how (2) this translates into pathways and pitfalls for an emerging global governance architecture to ensure the safe and responsible regulation of AI systems, particularly in the security domain.
