WEBCAST DEC 14 – CITI Governance – NETmundial +10: Opportunities and Challenges for Multistakeholder Global Internet Governance

isoc liveOn Thursday December 14, 2023, at 10:30-12:00 EST (15:30-17:00 UTC), the Columbia Institute for Tele-Information, as part of its Global Digital Governance series, presents a webinar ‘NETmundial +10: Opportunities and Challenges for Multistakeholder Global Internet Governance‘.

In April 2014, Brazil hosted the NETmundial Global Multistakeholder Meeting on the Future of Internet Governance in São Paulo. Held after a substantial online preparatory consultation, the meeting brought together over 1200 participants from governments and stakeholder groups to adopt a NETmundial Multistakeholder Statement that advanced guiding principles and a roadmap for the future evolution of Internet governance. The NETmundial strengthened international support for multistakeholder cooperation at a very difficult moment that was shaped by the Edward Snowden revelations, divisive Internet negotiations in the United Nations, and the US government’s planned transition of its authority over critical Internet resources to the global community.

On November 23, 2023 the Brazilian Internet Steering Committee (CGI.br) announced that Brazil will convene a NETmundial +10 meeting in São Paulo in the Spring of 2024. The stated objectives include reviewing and renewing international commitments to the NETmundial principles and strategic agenda, and debating the role of multistakeholder participation in today’s even more heatedly divided geopolitical environment. The prospective meeting is stimulating discussion around the world and in the new year will likely reanimate the wide-ranging debates about the roles of states and stakeholders and the balance between multistakeholder and intergovernmental cooperation in global Internet governance.

This webinar assembles a panel of veteran expert participants in global Internet governance for an initial open global discussion of the NETmundial+10 meeting. It is simulcast live under the auspices of the Internet Society New York Chapter (ISOC-NY).
