Program

To build trust, enhance policy coherence, and discuss concrete modalities for joint action, the 2018 Global Internet and Jurisdiction Conference is organized without formal panels to encourage dynamic exchanges among participants. It is structured around Stakeholder Plenary sessions on Day 1 and 3 and three parallel Workstreams on Day 2.

Based on the Areas of Cooperation identified by participants at the first Global Internet and Jurisdiction Conference in Paris, the Secretariat of the Internet & Jurisdiction Policy Network formed in 2017 three multistakeholder Contact Groups for each Workstream to map and identify concrete Policy Options. The result of their work was released in November 2017 for deliberations, and will be tabled as official input documents.

The second Global Internet and Jurisdiction Conference in Ottawa will be an opportunity for stakeholders to define a roadmap with clear targets and a working methodology to jointly develop policy standards and operational solutions that can be presented by participants at the third Global Internet and Jurisdiction Conference in 2019. Stakeholders in the Internet & Jurisdiction Policy Network together represent a critical mass of actors, uniquely able to provide the necessary impetus.
