Background (source: Internet & Jurisdiction Policy Network):
The 2nd Global Internet and Jurisdiction Conference of the Internet & Jurisdiction Policy Network will be an important milestone in addressing one of the greatest global governance challenges of the 21st century: how to manage the coexistence of national laws on the internet.

When they convene in Ottawa, Canada, on February 26-28, 2018, key senior-level representatives from a wide range of stakeholder groups and countries will work toward the development of policy standards and operational solutions to at the same time fight abuses, protect human rights, and enable the global digital economy. This is necessary to preserve the benefits generated by the cross-border nature of the Internet for future generations.

The 2nd Global Conference of the Internet & Jurisdiction Policy Network is organized in partnership with the Government of Canada and institutionally supported by the OECD, UNESCO, the Council of Europe, the European Commission, and ICANN.

Taking stock of the outcomes of the 1st Global Conference in 2016 in Paris, and the intersessional work in the Policy Network’s three Programs Data & Jurisdiction, Content & Jurisdiction, and Domains & Jurisdiction, the 2nd Global Conference of the Internet & Jurisdiction Policy Network will be an important opportunity.

Stakeholders will decide on concrete focus and priorities, as well as a clear methodology and roadmap for the Policy Network to advance the development of policy standards and operational solutions for submission at the its third Global Conference. It will take place in Berlin in June 2019, and will be, after France (2016) and Canada (2018), organized in partnership with Germany.

Time has come to accelerate the collective effort to address growing jurisdictional tensions on the internet through joint action.
