Conclusions of European stakeholder consultation on the report “The Age of Digital Interdependence”
Organiser: EuroDIG
In July 2018, UN Secretary-General António Guterres established the High-level Panel on Digital Cooperation. Co-chaired by Melinda Gates and Jack Ma, the Panel consisted of 22 international experts from government, the private sector, academia, the technical community and civil society. Its goal was to identify good examples and propose modalities for working cooperatively across sectors, disciplines and borders to address challenges in the digital age. On 10 June, the Panel submitted the report to the UN Secretary General. You find the report and further information on www.un.org/en/digital-cooperation-panel/.
Collating European views on the Report of the High-Level Panel on Digital Cooperation
The IGF, EuroDIG and other relevant platforms for inclusive multi-stakeholder dialogue have laid important ground for the work of the Panel and play a key role in discussing digital cooperation and governance. At its preparatory meeting in January 2019, the EuroDIG community decided to provide for a space to discuss and assess the HLP report and collate views from all stakeholders from all over Europe on the report and its recommendations.
In June 2019 European stakeholders where invited to express their views on the Report “The Age of Digital Interdependence”. EuroDIG set up a platform that allowed to comment on a paragraph by paragraph basis or by submitting a holistic assessment of the report and its findings. The comments are published in chronological order in which they were received at
Mark Carvell, former UK government representative, chaired the project and summarised all contributions in a single document that we herewith make available to the global public for further discussion at the UN Internet Governance Forum in Berlin in November 2019 or at any other occasion. https://www.eurodig.org/index.php?id=804
It is important to note that EuroDIG sees this process as one opportunity to trigger a debate and exchange on the findings of the Panel and does not intend to consider itself as the only platform to discuss views on and possible follow-up actions to the findings of the report. EuroDIG welcomes other initiatives that provide for a space to discuss and assess the Panel’s report and invites all European stakeholders to also participate in these.
