Event Description

In the past few years, several Internet principles have emerged, including the Council of Europe's Internet Governance Principles, the OECD Communiqué on Principles for Internet Policymaking, the Deauville G8 Declaration, and others. Our October webinar will focus on issues related to these emerging principles.

The special host for our October webinar is Professor Wolfgang Kleinwächter, professor for International Communication Policy and Regulation at the Department for Media and Information Sciences of the University of Aarhus, who will discuss various aspects related to emerging Internet principles, including:

1. A weakness in numerous existing declarations of principles is that they are adopted either by regional organisations with limited membership or by one stakeholder group (such as governments). Is a Universal Declaration on Internet Principles, which would include a commitment of all governments as well as all non-governmental stakeholders, a good idea?

2. Which is preferable: a soft-law instrument or a legally binding convention as an umbrella for Internet governance?

3. What would be the best platform to negotiate universal principles (for example: ITU, IGF, United Nations, ITU, UNESCO, WSIS 10+, the London Process)?

Join us for our October webinar, which is taking place on Tuesday, 30th October at 9:00 GMT. Participants can ask topic-related questions during the webinar. Attendance is free, but registration is required. Register here.
