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.



Workstream I Data & Jurisdiction How can transnational data flows and the protection of privacy be reconciled with lawful access requirements to address crime?
Workstream II Content & Jurisdiction How can we manage globally-available content in light of the diversity of local laws and norms applicable on the internet?
Workstream III Domains & Jurisdiction How can the neutrality of the internet’s technical layer be preserved when national laws are applied to the Domain Name System?


Ottawa Roadmap

At the 2nd Global Conference of the Internet & Jurisdiction Policy Network, organized in partnership with the Government of Canada on February 26-28, 2018, over 200 senior-level stakeholders from more than 40 countries adopted the Ottawa Roadmap (download the full outcome document).

The Ottawa Roadmap consists of agreed upon Common Objectives and Work Plans to foster policy coherence and joint action for each of the three current Programs of the Internet & Jurisdiction Policy Network:

Contact Groups

To implement the Ottawa Roadmap, three multistakeholder Contact Groups with over 100 members were established to develop with the full support of the I&J Secretariat proposals for policy standards and operational solutions based on the Work Plans adopted in Ottawa for the Data & Jurisdiction, Content & Jurisdiction and Domains & Jurisdiction Programs of the Internet & Jurisdiction Policy Network. They are comprised of key actors from all five continents from governments, Internet companies, technical operators, civil society, leading universities and international organizations.
