At the 3rd Global Conference of the Internet & Jurisdiction Policy Network, delegates will discuss concrete proposals for policy standards and operational solutions, developed by multistakeholder Contact Groups within each Program of the organization based on the Ottawa Roadmap.
These proposals will be released by the Contact Groups in April 2019 for preparatory consultations. In Berlin, delegates will then have the opportunity to explore modalities for joint action and potential implementation of proposals, discuss how to continue the work on other identified issues of common concern, and plan how to structure the future work in the Programs of the Internet & Jurisdiction Policy Network to foster policy coherence and cooperation.

They are comprised of key actors from all five continents from governments, Internet companies, technical operators, civil society, leading universities and international organizations.
