Chancen Digitale Stiftung
Since the establishment in 2002, it is the remit of the Digital Opportunities Foundation to research the social impact of digitisation, to campaign for equal access to the Internet for all people, and to advance digital literacy. Our objective is digital inclusion of all societal groups and counteracting the digital divide. We work in cooperation with public, civic, and private partners. Our projects are funded by federal and European programs as well as by industry. The foundation is working under the patronage of the Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs and Energy and the Federal Ministry for Family Affairs, Senior Citizens, Women and Youth. In our advisory board representatives of the major German civil society organisations collaborate and advise our work. 

Mission Statement 

Our Goal: Equal Opportunities in a Digital World. 

We enable competences and strengthen digital participation for everyone.  

We link civil society, politics, economy, and academia.  

We set impulses and shape discourses on national and international level.  

We work target-group-oriented to strengthen digital competences.  

We research the impact of digitisation on society. We use our practical experience for research and transfer our research results into our practical work.  


Our work is project based, addresses a large number of target groups, and can be classed in three categories:  

  1. Digital Society: Digitisation is shaping our day-to-day life in many aspects and has a huge impact on societal processes. This development needs to be researched, shaped, and put into context. 

  1. Digital Inclusion: No access to and lack of knowledge for a competent usage of digital resources can cause or further social disparity. We enable and foster digital inclusion of all people. 

  1. Digital Competence is a vital pre-requisite for digital inclusion. Digital Competence must be conveyed target-group-oriented via innovative formats.

Deutsche Telekom AG
To leverage the full potential benefits of digital transformation and artificial intelligence for society, an ethical framework for these technologies needs to be established. Technology requires guidelines, and these have yet to be defined for the digital age.

That’s why Deutsche Telekom is actively focusing attention on the many issues arising from these new technologies. The catchphrase is “Digital Responsibility.” As part of its focus on digital responsibility, we defined self-binding AI guidelines and encourage discussion on the subject.

IGF NRIs
Who are the NRIs?
National and Regional IGF initiatives (NRIs) are organic and independent formations that are discussing issues pertaining to Internet Governance from the perspective of their respective communities, while acting in accordance with the main principles of the global IGF.

Organizational principles
The IGF initiatives are expected to follow the principles and practices of being open and transparent, inclusive and non-commercial. They work in accordance with the bottom up consensus process of the IGF and need to have a multistakeholder participation (at least three stakeholder groups initially, and evolve toward inclusion of all stakeholder groups), in both formation of the Initiative and in any other Initiative related events.

How many NRIs are recognised by the UN Secretariat of the IGF?
Currently, there are 121 NRIs in total.
  • 87 national IGFs: https://www.intgovforum.org/multilingual/content/national-igf-initiatives 
  • 17 Regional and Sub-regional IGFs: https://www.intgovforum.org/multilingual/content/regional-igf-initiatives 
  • 18 Youth IGFs: https://www.intgovforum.org/multilingual/content/youth-initiatives

Internet Protection Society

 MANIFESTО   


The Internet and its freedom is important. For tens of millions of people in Russia, freedom of communication is a fundamental value - even if not everyone understands this.

The interests of users are directly affected by an unprecedented attack on the Internet, which has unfolded the Russian authorities in the face of its administrative, technological and censorship bodies.

The Internet today is on the front line in the confrontation between common sense and a repressive state machine. So far, the repressive machine is winning. It only gets worse.

Violations of the rights of users so distort the habitual for all of us free network habitat environment that we soon risk at all to remain without the Internet - the one we need. The Internet Protection Society (Общество Защиты Интернета, ОЗИ) was created in order to stop the onslaught of power on the Internet by methods of political opposition and political protest. We have united to defend the freedom of the Internet and the rights of users in Russia.

Internet Protection Society is an organization that fights for the freedom of the Internet through political means. We aim to make freedom on the Internet the subject of general political debate. To convey the importance of these questions to a wide range of citizens, and for politicians to make them answer.

We advocate and promote the ideals and values ​​of a free and self-regulating Internet. We know that the Internet is designed to solve any of its problems on the principles of self-regulation and does not need the control of state bodies. We want to extend this knowledge to as many people as possible.

We conduct public campaigns, organize mass events and campaigns of political pressure. We are engaged in informing and educating citizens. We act peacefully and legally.

Internet Protection Society is an open organization for cooperation. We support, in word and deed, the projects of other activists and organizations that are aimed at achieving our goals.

We want to ensure that the majority of Russian citizens understand that their happiness and well-being depend on the degree of freedom of the Internet. That the development of the economy and civil society without a free Internet is impossible in the XXI century. That the existing problems can be solved only by self-regulation, and not by prohibitions and repressions.

Konrad-Adenauer-Stiftung
The Konrad-Adenauer-Stiftung is a German political foundation. At home as well as abroad, our civic education programs aim at promoting freedom and liberty, peace, and justice.
In Germany, 16 regional offices offer a wide variety of civic education conferences and events. Our offices abroard are in charge of over 200 projects in more than 120 countries.
As a think-tank and consulting agency, our scientific fundamental concepts and current analyses are meant to offer a basis for possible political action. We provide moral and material support to intellectually gifted young people. Our Archive for Christian Democratic Politics researches and studies the history of Christian Democracy in German and Europe.

It is a commonplace that the rules for a global network are not negotiated in a national or even European framework. Meaningful solutions are only possible on the international level. That's why the Konrad-Adenauer-Stiftung is engaged in this idea worldwide. For more information www.kas.de

You will find our booth on the IGF Village in foyer 1 during the whole conference. Come and visit us.

Missions Publiques

Missions Publiques is an impact-driven consultancy (8 people) which works at improving Governance by including ordinary citizens in the process of policymaking. We work on the Future of Internet (http://wetheinternet.org/), autonomous mobility (http://themobilitydebate.net/) and Climate (COP26). We launch coalitions of global partners that design and roll-out massive deliberative face-to-face meetings in 120+ countries of world. We then push results in the policy making process to have impact and change the way governance works. We have a strong track record of global and international processes on climate, space, Biodiversity, Internet. Our partners include international organizations (UNESCO, UNFCCC, European Union, Council of Europe, European Space Agency, etc.), Governments (France, Germany, Swiss, Finnland, Morroko, Austria, Japan, etc.), Civil society organizations (Web Foundation, World Economic Forum, Internet Society, Wikimedia Foundation, etc.) and companies (Google, Mozilla, Airbus, Keolis, ENGIE, etc.). 

Internet represents a tremendous opportunity for humanity. Through the multiplication of networks, the possibility of being connected almost instantaneously to information and individuals, the Internet has revolutionized human relationships and society, to the point of being perceived as the space for the advent of a society of freedom and equality between all Human being.

However, as humanity benefits from these advances, drawbacks become more visible. Nearly 50% of the world's population is still not connected and even those who have access lack some basic skills to use it or benefit from it. The security of Internet users, addiction, data protection and misinformation are spreading and stakeholder engaged in decision making are struggling to take action as the topics are complex, their interest partly collide and the pressure put on them is growing.

The Global Citizens’ Dialogue on the Future of Internet aims at putting ordinary citizens in the decision-making loop to support decision makers to move forward and ensure that our common digital future will benefit all. Humanity deserves and asks for better governance. Both citizens and decisions makers are ready. By using such new forms of political non-partisan dialogue, decisions become more in tune with the complexity of our age, more legitimate and more sustainable. Decisions makers gain in legitimacy, insights and transparency. Citizens enter the realm of complexity of global decision making and are included in policy making. Both are strengthened by this interaction.

Mozilla
Many of you may know Mozilla primarily for our flagship product: Firefox. But there's so much more, we care and would love to talk about. Meet us at our booth and let's find out together how we all can "​Demand Better of the Internet​"!

Mozilla is a mission-driven organization that considers the internet as an integral part of modern life.  We work to ensure it remains a global public resource, open and accessible to all, enriching the lives of individual human beings. To us, privacy and security must not be treated as optional. We believe that individuals must have the ability to shape the internet and their own experiences on it. We support interoperability, open innovation, and decentralization. We develop and invest in free and open source software; engage in community-based processes; and strive to increase inclusion and collaboration for the common good.

Still abstract? During the IGF week, you can meet some of our wonderful colleagues, many of them from our Mozilla Berlin office, and ask them about their work and how it relates to the pressing issues of Internet Governance.

Overview schedule: 
  • Tuesday, 26 Nov: ​Internet Health​ -- we'll have experts on advocacy, campaigning, fighting misinformation, our Internet Health Report and more.
  • Wednesday, 27 Nov: ​Engineering​ -- security, enhanced tracking protection, Rust programming language, and community integration are just some of the topics our experts can speak to.
  • Thursday, 28 Nov: Future of the Web -- you're thinking about alternative online business models, how we can reimagine openness, what decentralization and authentication could look like in the future? So do we.

Weizenbaum Institute
The Weizenbaum Institute for the Networked Society - The German Internet Institute is a collaborative project from Berlin and Brandenburg funded by the Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF). Coordinator of the consortium is the Berlin Social Science Center (WZB).
The aim is to better understand the dynamics, mechanisms and implications of digitalisation. To this end, the Weizenbaum Institute investigates the ethical, legal, economic and political aspects of digital change. This creates an empirical basis for responsible digitalisation. On the basis of the research findings, action options are developed for government, the economy and civil society, in order to shape the digital transformation in a responsible interdisciplinary manner.
The Weizenbaum Institute for the Networked Society – funded by the Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF) – is a consortium of five universities and two no university research institutions in Berlin and Brandenburg, The following partners are involved in the consortium: Freie Universität Berlin (FU Berlin), Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin (HU Berlin), Technische Universität Berlin (TU Berlin), Universität der Künste Berlin (UdK), Universität Potsdam (UP), as well as the Fraunhofer Institute for Open Communication Systems (FOKUS) and the Berlin Social Science Center (WZB). The WZB acts as the consortium coordinator and is responsible for the activities of the office.

Meet our scientists

27.11.2019 11.00-11.45 a.m. Research Group "Digitalisation and Scientific Value Creation"

The research group “Digitalisation and Scientific Value Creation” at the Weizenbaum Institute investigates the influence of digitalization on academic research. Digitalization is understood as a change in the research and publication processes that promises to increase the benefits of research.  At the moment, an Open Science infrastructure is being developed and tested at the Weizenbaum Institute. The research group undertakes the scientific monitoring of this process. As the first components of the infrastructure, a repository for publications & research data is being set up, and a Citizen Science portal is being designed and implemented prototypically. While the aim of the repository is to manage research data, the aim of the envisioned Citizen Science portal is to enable scientists as well as non-scientists to participate in research by creating, processing and analyzing research data. The current tried-and-tested approach pursues the idea of drawing the attention of citizens by installing interactive wall-sized displays in public spaces. For the IGF, we prepared a small use case, where Tweets related to the forum are being categorized and rated.

Come see us, and learn more about our research. We look forward to discuss with you!

27.11.2019 2.00-2.45 p.m. Research Group "Democracy and Digitalisation"

Developing a better understanding of the interplay between digitalisation and democratic self-government is the declared aim of the research group ‘Democracy and Digitalisation’. The group’s research focuses on three areas of interest: Political participation, the digital transformation of the democratic public sphere and the reconfiguration of rule in the digital constellation.
At the IGF2019 three researchers from the group - Thorsten Thiel, Sebastian Berg, Niklas Rakowski - will present their work. After a general introduction into different ways of researching digitalisations effects on democracy, we will develop our own approach by developing two strands of research: We will, firstly, outline the form(s) and importance of democratic innovations developed by civic tech actors; and, secondly, discuss the impact of datafication practices on political representation, especially in the context of democratic elections.

28.11.2019 2.00-11.45 p.m. "SDG x ICT Matrices for a Sustainable Digitalisation"

Information and communication technology (ICT) has enhanced citizen participation in disaster relief operations by, for example, promoting awareness of real-time needs in affected areas and ensuring visibility among actors. In particular, in the last decade, there have been intense research activities focusing on non-traditional data sources, such as social media during and after large-scale disasters. This approach, which regards people's communication on social media as a sensor of real-time situations has been widely adopted as the "people as sensor'' approach. I will introduce several "people as sensors'' approaches that have been implemented. Furthermore, to improve recovery efforts after a large-scale disaster, detecting communities’ real-time recovery situations is needed because existing socio-economic recovery indicators, such as observing changes in population and production, and conducting questionnaire surveys, are not available in a real-time way. Thus, using social media data has the possibility of filling the gap by its timeliness, volume, and diversity. Motivated by this possibility, this study gives multiple evidence to support the appropriateness of using social media data for detecting socio-economic recovery activities.

Pre-Event 9 - The Clash of Codes. Conflicts of Laws in Government Data Access and How to Resolve Them (Microsoft Germany)
Conflicts of laws (viz. legal contradictions between different national legal regimes) are not a new phenomenon, but they are becoming a particularly crucial issue in the age of global digital communities and services. In the realm of international data governance, the US Cloud Act and the European E-Evidence-Proposal serve as striking examples: The legal regime created via these new frameworks will be substantially shaped by the interplay between state data access competences with extraterritorial reach on one hand, and blocking statutes, aiming at preventing such access, on the other hand. The resulting “Clash of Codes” in this case is not accidental, but politically intended. This raises the question how to resolve such manufactured conflicts.

The decade-old “international comity” doctrine aims to provide a legal recourse to resolve such conflicts of law. However, comity remains a rather general and vague principle and is often “poorly understood” (William S. Dodge). Moreover, from the perspective of an affected institution, it provides insufficient legal certainty to effectively render a solution.
Against the background of the US Cloud Act and the European E-Evidence proposal, the proposed workshop will discuss possible ways to resolve internationals conflicts of laws. Can an advanced comity doctrine serve as an answer? Or will political solutions in the form of new treaties or even supranational legal frameworks be necessary?

Speakers:
  • Prof. Jennifer Daskal, Associate Professor of Law at American University Washington College of Law & Center for Strategic and International Studies 
  • Alexandra Jour-Schroeder, Deputy Director-General, DG Justice and Consumers, European Commission
  • Sofía Jaramillo Otoya, Legal Advisor to UN Special Rapporteur on Freedom of Expression and Digital Rights Fellow, University of California Irvine
  • Ulrich Kelber, German Federal Commissioner for Data Protection and Freedom of Information

Pre-Event 41 - Leaving Hotel California: promoting alternatives to the Internet giants (Open-Xchange + OpenForum Europe)

Open-Xchange and OpenForum Europe want to bring the experts, the concerned and curious to discuss tangible policy actions to increase competition and user choice in the digital markets, in particular for the platform economy. We want to have an open discussion investigating what a legal model for interoperability can look like.

Please feel free to share this with friends and colleagues who are going to the IGF or are Berlin-based.
The idea of interoperability requirements based on open standards is that it would counter the concentration of the ICT markets by reducing barriers to entry, allowing competitors to compete. This in turn unleashes societal benefits such as user choice and control. We could avoid winner-takes-all outcomes and multiple closed silos, where the user has to get access to every single platform. The idea is not new. In fact, interoperability was offered as the solution in cases such as the requirements imposed by both regulators and antitrust enforcers against AT&T and by antitrust enforcers in US v. Microsoft, and was at the center of the landmark Microsoft antitrust case. It is interoperability that has allowed for third party ink-cartridges, and avoided an early monopoly of PCs.
We are again seeing interoperability entering the debate of competition in digital markets once again. In response to this, we hope to move the conversation beyond discussions on how and why markets are centralising, and instead look at which legal specifications are needed to make the promise of interoperability a reality.

In order to keep our conversation anchored in the current policy debate, we aim to shape our session around the three questions based on the preconditions for interoperability requirements posed by the European Commission in their leaked discussion document on the Digital Services Act:

●      Where does interoperability make sense?
●      When is it technically feasible?
●      In what contexts will it lead to more competition and real options for customers?

Pre-Event 32 - NETmundial+5: The Legacy and Implications for Future Internet Governance (EuroSSIG)
William J. Drake, Euro-SSIG/Medienstadt Leipzig, CGI.br, DENIC.de, & the Alexander von Humboldt Institute for Internet and Society

Description:  In April 2014, representatives of governments and stakeholders from around the world gathered in São Paulo, Brazil to negotiate and adopt the NETmundial Multistakeholder Statement on global Internet governance. As the statement's Preamble explained, "This is the non-binding outcome of a bottom-up, open, and participatory process involving thousands of people from governments, private sector, civil society, technical community, and academia from around the world. The NETmundial conference was the first of its kind. It hopefully contributes to the evolution of the Internet governance ecosystem."

The statement had two main sections. The first was a list of Internet Governance Principles that enumerated human rights and shared values; set out procedural guidlines concerning the conduct of multistakeholder Internet governance; and highlighted other guiding objectives like promoting a unified and unfragmented Internet that retains an open and distributed architecture and is secure, stable and resilient. The second was a Roadmap for the Future Evolution of Internet Governance that covered a broad range of priorities for action, including strengthening the IGF, completing the IANA transition and advancing ICANN's globalization, promoting enhanced cooperation and multi-stakeholder mechanisms at the national and global levels, and improving communication and coordination among Internet governance processes. The Statement also took note of the need for further dialogue and cooperation in other issue-areas like law enforcement assistance and cyber security, mass and arbitrary surveillance, capacity building, the roles and responsibilities of stakeholders, jurisdictional questions, benchmarking systems, and net neutrality.

Five years on, what has been achieved in terms of follow-up and implementation of the Statement's Principles and Roadmap? In which issue-areas they covered have we seen progress, stasis, or retrenchment, and why? What, if anything, could be done in the current geopolitical environment to advance cooperation on the Statement's unrealized objectives? Might any of the current initiatives being pursued in intergovernmental or multistakeholder settings help? Is there a role for the IGF in any such efforts, and could any aspects of the NETmundial process be instructive regarding the IGF's own performance? Does the NETmundial offer lessons and have normative relevance to emerging governance challenges, or should we just regard it merely as a one-off event of no lasting significance?

The purpose of this Day 0 session is to promote open and probing dialogue on these and related questions. The session will be structured as follows:

13:05-13:45 Roundtable Part I: The NETmundial Meeting and the Multistakeholder Statement 
13:45-14:00 Open discussion
14:00-14:45 Roundtable Part II: The Legacy and Implications for Future Internet Governance

Pre-Event 51 - IGF Regional Dialogue: Overcoming Barriers to Meaningful Participation in the MENA Region
In his speech at the IGF2018 in Paris, António Guterres, UN Sec-Gen, highlighted the importance of an inclusive dialogue on new digital technologies and policies around them in order to maximize their benefits to the humankind whilst minimizing their negative unintended consequences. He stressed the notion of “leaving no one behind” as a prerequisite to reaching workable solutions for challenges posed by these new technologies and the way they affect societies, and to achieving the globally agreed 2030 Sustainable Development Agenda.  
During IGF2018 recap session in Paris, it was noted that the voices of the Middle East and North Africa are among those particularly missing or underrepresented in the global debate. A more concerted effort is obviously required to identify the barriers and to boldly rethink the current approaches.
This session aims at bringing together various actors in the region and beyond, including from organizations, entities, and initiatives addressing key Internet-related policy and governance areas. Speakers and participants will have equal opportunity to share experience, and outline both efforts aimed at better engagement in the region, and also barriers that might be limiting the realization of the full potential of these efforts.
The session will also seek to identify synergies and gaps, where actors can further their efforts, rethink activities, or commence on new partnerships to bridge existing gaps.  It will also touch upon existing mechanisms to draw on best practices and lessons learnt, identify needed developments, and collectively outline envisaged plans for the region.
Session will adopt a moderated roundtable format to allow for maximum engagement.

Today, the Internet has become a central political, economical and societal medium. As such the Internet can contribute to economic growth and sustainable development and also strengthen human rights, political participation and the resilience of societies. Even though the potential of the internet is immense, its ubiquitous presence also brings with it new and diverse challenges. The challenges concern areas such as social cohesion (hate speech and fake news), security (cybercrime and cyber attacks), civil rights (e.g. privacy protection). To exploit the full potential of the internet and to adress the urgent challenges the international community needs to develop a shared vision of a desireable future for the internet. To contribute to a shared vision the Konrad-Adenauer-Foundation brings together different regional visions and different stakeholder perspectives on this panel .

!!!! If you want to be part of this discussion you are welcome. We will highly appreciate your input!!!!

 

Additionally to our panel KAS ( www.kas.de ) also has a booth at the IGF village, we would like to invite you as well. For further information about our booth: https://igf2019.sched.com/event/SU9X/konrad-adenauer-stiftung

Pre-Event 18 - Children’s Rights in the Digital World – A Case for Internet Governance (5Rights Foundation)

The Convention on the Rights of the Child was adopted by the United Nations General Assembly in November 1989 and is the most ratified treaty in history. It was visionary and at the same time set out a clear set of requirements, on behalf of children, that are binding on the signatory states

Thirty years later, childhood has been transformed. In parts of the world with high connectivity technology mediates and augment all areas of a child’s education, family and social life. What once were billed as the three pillars of a child’s socialisation; family, peers and school, have been joined by a fourth; the digital environment. In those parts of the world that are yet to be connected, or for those children who do not have access, the lack of access is fundamental to their life chances.

At the invitation of the UN Committee on the Rights of the Child, 5Rights Foundation is coordinating a General Comment to the Convention on the Rights of the Child, which will set out, for the first time on a global scale, how states should apply children’s rights in the digital environment. Our session at the IGF comes at a crucial midway point of the process, after world-wide consultations with experts and children and before the first draft of the General Comment is read by the full Committee on the Rights of the Child.

This provides a unique opportunity for IGF delegates to contribute directly to the formation of the General Comment and to meet key players on our journey.  The session will be chaired by Baroness Beeban Kidron, Chair 5Rights Foundation. We plan a highly interactive session which will include contributions from;

Mason Rikard, Gifted Young Generation Podcaster – A Child’s Right to be Heard

Professor Sonia Livingstone OBE, London School of Economics and lead author - Outlining the key areas of the General Comment

Jutta Croll, Stiftung Digitale Chancen, Chairwoman of the Board, Project Manager Child Protection and Children’s Rights in the Digital World – Outlining the importance and status of the general comment

Professor Amanda Third, Western Sydney University – Key findings from consultations with children

Alpesh Shah, Senior Director of Global Business Strategy & Intelligence at the IEEE Standards Association

We will invite a high-level representative from the German Federal Ministry for Family Affairs, Senior Citizens, Women and Youth, and a UK representative for closing comments.

Once adopted, the General Comment to the UNCRC will set a new international standard for children's rights in the digital world and will be applicable in the 196 countries that are signatories to the Convention.

Pre-Event 45 - GDPR - after more than one year: how to make it happen? (MyData Global)

MyData Global, an international non-profit which advocates for a human-centric approach to personal data organizes the multi-stakeholder workshop on the topic: "GDPR more than one year after. How to make it happen?" with the focus on the practical implementation of GDPR’s article 20, "Right to data portability". 
Article 20, paragraph 1 reads: "The data subject shall have the right to receive the personal data concerning him or her, which he or she has provided to a controller, in a structured, commonly used and machine-readable format and have the right to transmit those data to another controller without hindrance from the controller to which the personal data have been provided, where:

  • the processing is based on consent pursuant to point (a) of Article 6(1) or point (a) of Article 9(2) or on a contract pursuant to point (b) of Article 6(1); and

  • the processing is carried out by automated means."

In 2019, a year after GDPR came into force, article 20 is more a formal than actionable right. On one hand, there is a lack of tools, applications and processes to make it happen on the side of the organizations processing the personal data. On the other hand, people don’t know how to access their data and their often don’t trust their data is used ethically. This hinders the economic development based on data.

The workshop will bring the representatives of government, civic organization, technical communities and business with the aim to raise the awareness about the current status of the implementation of GDPR, and to generate the actionable solutions to make the article 20 reality in the upcoming years. The workshop will feed in into the discussion on Data Governance of IGF and contributes to the debate on the importance of human centric approach to personal data for just, equitable and inclusive model of sustainable development for everyone and reaching the SDGs (particularly SDG 8,9,10 and 16). 

The workshop is facilitated by: 

  • Karolina Mackiewicz & Sille Sepp from MyData Global and 
  • Olivier Dion & Matthias De Bievre from A New Governance MyData thematic group.

Digital competences are necessary in all aspects of life, whether they are social or personal, relate to labour or leisure, in any sector, public or private. Improved citizenship is the primary aim of developing digital competences. It is our conviction that the education and training on digital competences need a more consistent approach and a cohesive European system of delivery. That is why we have worked with our network of digital competence centres and relevant expert organisations on a Manifesto on digital competences.

The Manifesto contains a series of key principles and recommendations under five main areas on how to maximise the impact of education and training, as powerful instruments towards a continuous development of digital competences for the European citizens:

1. The education and training offer

2. Access to education and training

3. Quality of education and training

4. European homogeneous validation

5. Sustainability and development

The Manifesto is the result of a grassroot movement in Europe, but we believe it speaks to everyone and everywhere, and ALL DIGITAL is ready to start a dialogue and engage in common actions with partners around the world.

Data Governance Introductory Session

The aim of this interactive Introductory Session is to set the scene for the various sessions taking place during the week under the theme of Data Governance, the description of which can be found below.

To kick off the session and provide her insights on this broad topic, we are very fortunate to have Marie-Laure Denis, President of CNIL, the French data protection authority.  

The session will then proceed with small, informal group discussions on six different aspects of Data Governance: Cross-border data;  Jurisdictional & sovereignty issues; Data protection frameworks; Data & sustainable development; Human rights & internet ethics; and Governance & ethics of AI algorithms. The six sub-themes are represented in this graphic -  https://www.intgovforum.org/multilingual/filedepot_download/8432/1674. Participants will be encouraged to share their views and experience regarding key policy issues in these six break-out sessions, discuss pressing policy questions.

The session will close with reports back from each breakout group to the full room. We hope that this session helps people to learn more about sessions in areas of particular personal interest that will be taking place in Berlin, as well as connecting with others interested in, and working on, the same policy issues.

AGENDA

09:30 – 09:35 Welcome and Introductions

09:35 – 10:00 Scene-setting remarks by, and questions to, Marie-Laure Denis, President, CNIL (French Data Protection Authority)

10:00 – 10:40 Sub-thematic breakout sessions

10:40 – 11:15 Reports back from breakout sessions

11:15 – 11:20 Conclusion

BACKGROUND

The Data Governance track will provide for discussions on the fundamental challenge of ensuring the benefits of the data revolution to contribute to inclusive economic development while protecting the rights of people. 

The global nature of the Internet and the transfer of digital information across borders brings an international dimension to discussions around data. The generation, collection, storage, transfer and processing of data (including personally identifiable data) have enabled new social, cultural, and economic opportunities than ever previously imagined. At the same time, the massive collection, transfer  and processing of data (in particular through the application of algorithms/AI/machine learning) by public as well as private entities pose challenges around privacy, freedom of expression and the exercise of other human rights.

The Data Governance track will contribute to identifying best approaches to ensure the development of human-centric data governance frameworks at national, regional and international levels. It will enable an exchange of views on how to support and operationalize the exercise of human rights and the empowerment of individuals in their digital identity in current uses and development of data-driven technologies. And it will consider how to create the conditions needed to facilitate data-driven innovation, to ensure competition, and to foster trust in the development of services and new technologies, including through the use of inclusive data and the fulfillment of the UN’s 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development.

Safety/Security Introductory Session

This Introductory Session will “set the scene” for the Safety, Security, Stability and Resilience theme.

The session provides attendees the opportunity to connect with attendees who are engaged in similar work and have similar interests.

Security and Safety are prerequisites to economic growth and a healthy digital environment beneficial to all. While security, stability, and resilience refer to the systems, the infrastructure, and the devices; safety and resilience of the users are also of paramount relevance. Under this theme potential risks to security and safety will be discussed from various angles with due consideration to how stability and resilience can be achieved. Strategies for protection of both systems and users will be addressed, taking into account a multidisciplinary perspective to potential solutions and the importance of stakeholder collaboration for responding to the growing range of threats to the global Internet and its users.

DC on Network Neutrality (DCNN)

5G, IoT and Zero Rating Challenges for Net Neutrality

While 5G and the IoT are supposed to bring incredible changes to the way connectivity is provided and utilised, zero rating practices – with particular regard to the sponsoring of social media – are already determining an incredible impact on democracies around the world.

Building on the DCNN 2018 outcome, the Zero Rating Map and on the works developed by DCNN members, this session aims at exploring the impact that the most recent technological and commercial developments are deploying and will deploy on Internet users’ capability to freely access and share innovation and information online and, ultimately, on the rights of every connected individual. Importantly the 2019 DCNN outcome, the #ZeroRating website (available at www.zerorating.info) will be officially presented and discussed.

The session will have the following agenda:
  • Brief introduction to the DCNN and its work
  • Presentations and debate on  the 2019 DCNN outcome: the #ZeroRating website
  • Presentations and debate on 5G and IoT
  • Discussion of next steps and priorities for DCNN

WS 41 Tech Nationalism: 5G, Cybersecurity and Trade
This session will discuss the competition over 5G and other “strategic” informaton and communication technologies that are alleged to be critical to national power. The workshop is structured as a debate, as there are two distinct sides to tech nationalism (basically pro and con), but the speakers are not polarized and will be able to appreciate the claims of either position. The debate will explore how the securitization of software and equipment affects Internet governance and the digital economy. The panel will include perspectives from the USA, Europe, India, and China. 

The panel will be co-moderated by: 

  • Milton Mueller, Director of the Internet Governance Project at the Georgia Institute of Technology, Atlanta, USA
  • William Drake, International Fellow and Lecturer at the University of Zurich
Panelists include:
  • Jyoti Panday , Researcher, India Telecom Center of Excellence, Indian Institute of Management, Ahmedabad
  • Jan-Peter Kleinhans, Project Director IT Security in the Internet of Things, Stiftung Neue Verantwortung
  • Tobias Feakin, Ambassador for Cyber Affairs of the Australian Government 
  • Donald Morrissey, Head of U.S. Congressional, State, and Local Government Affairs for Huawei Technologies LLC (USA)
The moderators will pose questions and issues to pairs of speakers with contrasting views. They will engage with each other, debating the differences and trying to reach agreement. There will be three rounds of this. Then there will be an opening to the audience to discuss one side or the other. In the final segment the discussion will be steered toward resolution and agreement on best practices.

Schedule:

11:30-11:40    Overview of topic, introduction of panelists and process 

11:40-12:00    Topic 1: The Nature of Techno-nationalism  

  • What is techno-nationalism and how widespread is it in the industrialized and developing worlds? 
  • For example, many observers have detected a subcategory called "data nationalism" that views data as a 'national resource' to be 'protected' by the state. What are the arguments for and against this approach? 

12:00-12:20    Topic 2: The Battle Over 5G 

  • What cybersecurity threats, if any, are posed by the national origin of 5G infrastructure suppliers? 
  • How much of the concern about foreign equipment, software and data use is motivated more by economic than by cybersecurity concerns (e.g. in the US, China, Australia, Europe…)
  • Is it possible to reconcile techno-nationalist approaches to 5G with global markets for software, services and equipment? 

12:20-12:30    Topic 3: What is to be Done?  

  • How could we advance the search for more cooperative solutions to techno-nationalist policies?
  • Is techno-nationalism compatible with global multistakeholder governance of the Internet?

12:30-13:00    Open Discussion Among All Participants

Applying Human Rights and Ethics in Responsible Data Governance and Artificial Intelligence

This session will bring ethical and human rights' perspectives of AI as a technology that holds many promises and raises many concerns. Like any other technology, it all depends on how we use it. AI can contribute to addressing some of the world's most pressing problems, but it can also lead to more inequality. AI can make people's lives easier, but it can also generate discrimination and bias. So how do we develop and use AI in a human-centric and trustworthy manner? How to make sure that the data used by AI is reliable, accurate, and complete enough as not to generate discrimination? How to avoid privacy and data protection breaches in accessing and processing the large amounts of data that are at the core of AI? And how do we make sure that there is transparency and accountability in how algorithms function and AI is used?

At IGF 2018, we started a discussion on the role of ethical frameworks and human rights legal instruments in addressing these issues. One conclusion was that ethics differ across cultures and geographies, and, as such, we might be more efficient and effective in building trustworthy AI if we focus on applying existing human rights principles. Meanwhile, several new ethical frameworks have been developed by different entities (OECD, ITU, EU Commission, IEEE), and renewed calls have been made to ensure that human rights are always preserved in AI contexts, including in design, use and deployment. So where are we now, and what next? We have multiple human rights and ethical frameworks, but is this enough? How to apply them consistently in governing data, developing algorithms and actually using AI systems? Who bares this responsibility? And are there (or should there be) mechanisms for enforcement and monitoring in place?

More specifically, the session will address three policy questions:

a) What is, in fact, a trustworthy and responsible AI, especially with regard to data governance?

b) What is the role of human rights legal instruments and ethical frameworks in ensuring trustworthy and responsible data governance and AI? Are there any lessons learnt from existing frameworks?

c) How to cross the bridge between defining human rights and ethical frameworks and implementing them in AI systems and SDGs? What is the role of different stakeholders and how can they work together to achieve the best results?

DC on DNS Issues
The Dynamic Coalition on Domain Name System Issues (DC-DNSI) met for the first time at UNESCO in Paris, during the IGF2018.  It was during that meeting that the community decided upon Universal Acceptance as the focus for the DC's inaugural year of work.  Universal Acceptance (UA) happens when "all domain names and all email addresses work in all software applications" and is tool for Digital Inclusion. 

This session builds upon two regional IGF sessions (EuroDIG, SEEDIG), MAG meeting briefings, and several months of discussion on the DC-DNSI list about UA and, in particular, UA-readiness within the public sector.  Our goal for the session is to exchange information and advance discussion on how the public sector may be encouraged to adopt UA practices, and why it is important to do so.

Please join us for a collaborative exchange on Universal Accpetance to understand where the work on UA is currently happening, why it is so important for digital inclusion, and the different ways in which people are encouraging governments to become UA-ready.

WS 195 Cybersecurity concerns everyone - Responsibility and education throughout the digital supply chain
Cybersecurity concerns everyone. To ensure a product’s security it is key that everyone along the value chain – from development through production and delivery and beyond – is aware and educated about the risks and responsibilities. But how do we manage this task?
The Charter of Trust invites you to discuss this questions during our workshop at the Internet Governance Forum. Founded at the Munich Security Conference in 2018, the Charter of Trust is a cybersecurity alliance of 16 global leaders like Siemens, Cisco, IBM or Mitsubishi Heavy Industries. During our workshop you will hear talks by Eva Schulz-Kamm, Head of Global Government Affairs at Siemens AG and Laurent Bernat, Policy Analyst for Digital Security Policy at the OECD. They will later be joined by Dr. Alexander Wolf, CEO Division Business Assurance at TÜV SÜD AG, Jacques Kruse-Brandao, Global Head of Advocacy at SGS, Wolfgang Percy Ott, Head of Government Affairs Germany at Cisco, and Dr. Jochen Friedrich, Technical Relations Executive at IBM. They all will discuss the challenges of responsibility and education throughout the entire value chain and how the Charter of Trust has worked to tackle these challenges.

Addressing Terrorist and Violent Extremist Content Online
The reach of content published online is amplified through social media platforms at a speed never seen before. This has promoted democratic values by empowering individuals to express themselves freely, and has enhanced economic, social, political, and cultural participation. Amidst these positives, however, there are increasing risks associated with the proliferation of hate across these platforms, including terrorism and violent extremism, which has affected the way people feel safe and secure both online and offline. 

This main session will focus on different responsibilities, responses, rights and risks involved in policy approaches to dealing with terrorist and violent extremist content (TVEC) online.  It will consider regulatory and non-regulatory approaches by social media platforms, as well as how such platforms address violent extremist content uploaded to their services by end users.

WS 170 Children's Privacy and Data Protection in Digital Contexts
Organizers:
  • William Bird, Media Monitoring Africa 
  • Daniela Tews, Deutsches Kinderhilfswerk e.V.

Policy Questions:
What are the views and positions of different stakeholders on children's rights to privacy and data protection? Who is responsible for the protection of data of children and how to fill the gaps of implementation? How to responsibly balance between protection and participation rights of children?

 

Description:
Personal rights such as the right to privacy and honour are not new. However, they become particularly relevant in the context of digital media use and digitisation. In view of the rapid and diverse distribution channels, personal data such as images or personal data in various forms like location or interests can quickly get out of control of one's own sphere of action and cause lasting damage. Especially when it comes to children and young people being online and becoming consumers of products and services, a particularly high responsibility to protect their privacy at various institutional levels is justified. These stakeholders must develop appropriate strategies that correspond and work together. Individuals, families, educational institutions and the state, and especially providers and developers of technologies, algorithms, games and online services, have to put personal rights before particular interests. These stakeholders are well aware of the many risks of media use and their responsibility towards children. However, their practice and actions often contradict this. There is a need for understanding and action here.

DC on Internet Rights and Principles: Internet Futures and the Climate Crisis
Internet Futures and the Climate Crisis - Paths to Sustainability or Extinction?

2019 marks the 30th anniversary of World Wide Web, a fundamental moment in the history of the Internet, and an integral part of our daily lives in this era of the Internet of Things, Big Data and Artificial Intelligence. It is estimated that over 4 billion people are now internet users and 3.9 billion are active mobile internet users, which represents more than half of the global population. However, Internet connectivity comes at a price: despite the potential to reduce the environmental impact, the internet and its dependent technologies are in fact contributing to the current climate crisis, and with the global number of users rapidly increasing, the ICTs may soon overtake the carbon footprint of the aviation industry.  

Can green Internet-dependent technologies offer smart solutions to tackle the climate crisis? 
Discussions around sustainability and the environmental impact of ICTs have been largely absent from Internet Governance agendas, despite the current global climate crisis and the ever-growing energy demands of a fast-increasing digital industry.
As the UN SDGs look to connect the next billion the relationship between recognition of emerging rights such as that of internet access and existing rights (e.g. the right to information, education) and the environmental burden internet-dependent technologies requires our attention. Internet access as a sustainable development goal implies research into, and development of equipment, architectures, and services that are also environmentally sustainable in light of undertakings around the current climate crisis and the Sustainable Development Goals (SGDs).
This session is a follow-up to meetings organised last year IGF in Paris and at this year’s EuroDIG in The Hague and part of our ongoing outreach work through the Charter of Human Rights and Principles for the Internet.

Speakers:
  • Chris Adams - ClimateAction.tech, Tech community
  • Christopher Olk - Extinction Rebellion, International Labour Organization, Civil Society,
  • Conor Rigby - Feminist Internet, "Designing an Ecological Alexa" (remote) -  Creative / tech community
  • Constanze Buerger - Federal Ministry of the Interior Germany, Government
  • Fridays for Future representatives (remote) - Civil Society / Youth Representation
  • Lea Rosa Holtfreter - Civil Society / Youth Representation

  3. Address the major issues arising from the fast increase of energy consumption and carbon footprint of internet dependent technologies: production, consumption and e-waste; climate misinformation online and harassment of youth climate activists and identify the society impact and the human rights directly affected directly by the environmental hazards of internet dependent technologies (e.g. forced labour, climate migration);
  4. Create a collective hub, bringing together all IGF participants to produce the creative solutions urgently needed to ensure that next generation of internet-dependent technologies provide technologically viable and sustainable responses to issues arising from global environmental degradation.


Policy Questions: Outcomes and Interventions
Questions that this meeting will address include, but are not restricted to:
  1. Which human rights are directly affected by the environmental impact of internet-dependent technologies?
  2. How can the digitalization and networking of the urban environment, such as digital/smart cities projects, take into account the principles, and practice of environmental sustainability and  “human rights by design”?
  3. How can global, and national internet policymaking agendas better respond to existing and future environmental issues arising from connecting the Sustainable Development Goals with those aiming to “Connect the next billion”?
  4. In which specific areas - of public concern, geography, or internet design – can different stakeholders generate working relationships for sustainable, rights-based internet futures?

WS 315 Youth in IG for Internet Ethics & Digital Inclusion

WS #315 Youth in IG for Internet ethics & digital inclusion is an IGF 2019 workshop initiated and organized by youth leaders from different parts of the world. The workshop is initiated to engage youth talents from different regions with a focus on Internet ethics. By interacting with participants of different cultures, races, and experiences, we expect to discuss and develop an ethical understanding of the Internet in order to achieve digital inclusion. With the experiences and inputs from different partnering organizers, including Jenna Fung (NetMission.Asia), Elisabeth Schauermann (Youth IGF Summit 2019 & EuroDIG), Elliott Mann (Swinburne Law School), Aisyah Shakirah Suhaidi (Internet Society Malaysia Chapter), Joy Wathagi Ndungu (Digital Grassroots), and Jaewon Son (Korea Internet Governance Alliance), a robust foundation is developed for this workshop.


Goal of this Workshop
  • To engage participants from different regions for a discussion with a focus on Internet ethics.

  • To discuss and develop an ethical understanding of the Internet in order to achieve digital inclusion. 

  • To come up with a youth statement with practical examples and suggestions after the discussion.

  • To strengthen the youth community in the Internet Governance ecosystem.

BackgroundPolicy Question
  • What are the major factors leading to the low engagement of youth in IG and how can we tackle this problem to ensure better participation?

  • How can including youth from all backgrounds help contribute to the development process of Internet ethics and policies?

  • What role can policies and best practices play in creating a cyber environment that promotes positive digital citizenship, and cyber wellness among young Internet users?

Problem Statement

Youths are the fastest-growing demographic on the internet and those who develop the future of the digital world. They are one of the important stakeholder groups in the Internet Governance ecosystem. Their participation in the policy-making process is essential yet the youth engagement remains low. In this digital era, Internet ethics and digital inclusion are critical for the sustainability of the Internet Governance ecosystem and the Internet. Which role is the youth playing in such a context? 

Youth participation & engagement

  1. How can youth-driven initiatives advocate for the rights and opportunities for disadvantaged youth hailing from different communities in Internet Governance, and create an environment in which young people can engage actively in the IG processes?

  2. What are the tools needed for youth-driven IG initiatives to empower people with disabilities and marginalized societies in order to engage and promote youth participation in IG?

  3. What are the main/most common factors leading to low engagement of youth in IG and how can we tackle this problem so that improvements can be made to ensure better participation in the future?

  4. What are the challenges for youth initiatives when facilitating youth participation in the IG process?

  5. How can the government help facilitate youth engagement and participation in the IG process?

Internet Ethics & policies

  1. How can including youth from all backgrounds (young women, youth with disabilities, underserved societies, other marginalized groups) in IG help contribute to the development process of Internet ethics and policies?

  2. What is the role of youth participation in the IG process to different stakeholder groups in developing Internet ethics and policies?


Digital Inclusion

  1. How do different stakeholder groups engaged in the IG process encourage youth participation so as to achieve digital inclusion?

  2. Digital resilience: What role can policies and best practices play in creating a cyber environment which helps to promote positive digital citizenship, and cyber wellness among young Internet users

FormatBreak-out Group Discussions - Round Tables - 90 mins

1) Introduction: 10 mins

The moderator(s) will start the session with the introduction of the work and activities of youth initiatives in the Asia Pacific region. To allow the exchange of ideas and insights between and among regions, the moderator(s) will invite youth leaders from different regions, e.g. African group and European group, to specifically talk about the context of youth engagement in IG in their regions. The floor will be opened to seek clarification questions about the youth initiatives and their works, in order to encourage the audience to think about how the youth initiatives contribute in building youth’s awareness and capacity and contributing to the Internet ethics and policies for digital inclusion.

2) Panel Discussion: 25 mins

The moderator(s) will then invite speakers from different stakeholder groups, including technical community, the private sector, government/ intergovernmental organization, and civil society, to share their opinions and views on the importance of youth engagement and participation in IG process, and how youth’s advocacy contributes to policy change. Sharing from each speaker will be set to 4-5 minutes. Follow up with a 10-minute Q&A session before moving on to the round-table discussion.

3) Break-out Group Discussion: 10 mins

The discussion will then be continued based on and focused on the cases and examples shared by the speakers. To facilitate a robust discussion, speakers from different stakeholder groups, geographical region, and gender will be split into break-out groups to share their points of view from different perspectives for 10 mins.

4) Open Floor Discussion: 25 mins

To further expand and deepen the discussion, the floor will be opened for comments, questions, and suggestions for further actions of different communities and stakeholder groups. By setting up an open-floor discussion, it allows and empowers attendees to advocate their opinions and points of view of the communities they are representing. This session is expected to be dynamic and interactive, in which the moderator(s) will queue up the audience and speakers for questions, responses or comments upon requests. The discussion will also be sought from remote participants, who will be welcome to engage and be involved in the open floor discussion.

5) Action & Output: 10 mins

Based on the collective experiences in the session, the moderator(s) will summarize the discussions in the previous section and move forward to explore any potential actions, activities or collaborations for regional youth initiatives and other stakeholder groups. These future ideas will aim to enhance and encourage higher youth participation and engagement in the IG process, proliferating Internet ethics and policies from the youth perspectives for digital inclusion. The suggested action items, activities, collaborations, the case sharing(s) from the discussion, and any public comments will be the output for the report of the session.

WS 341 Roadmap for Confidence Building Measures (CBM) in Cyberspace

This session will take an expansive look at confidence building measures (CBMs) in cyberspace. An accelerating arms race between nations in the “fifth domain of conflict” – cyberspace – is likely to continue unabated without the imposition of meaningful processes and dialogues meant to reduce tensions and promote trust among competing and even allied countries. Such activities can mirror traditional approaches to confidence building in other conflict domains, including diplomatic engagements, information sharing, and technology exchanges, but might also involve innovative new approaches unique to cyberspace – including focusing on cooperative cybersecurity capacity building. Panelistsl will  represent government perspectives, as well as those of intergovernmental organizations and the technology industry.

The session format will allow speakers to present their respective points of view as it relates to the potential of CBMs in cyberspace, as well as the opportunity to challenge and respond to one another on which approaches might be most effective. Importantly, the session will help educate those attending the session on this emerging area of cyber diplomacy and leave ample time for questions and comments directly from those in attendance, in person and online.

Implementing Internet standards and protocols for a safer Internet ( LW Int. and De Natris Consult)
This workshop is a integral part of an IGF intersessional pilot project. The rational behind the pilot is to actively establish whether the IGF is able to influence or speed up current debates within internet governance. By bringing relevant, sometimes new stakeholders to the IGF and not only have them let them present their point of view, but to ask all present to create recommendations together that are commonly understood as potential solutions to the challenge at hand, a longlasting debate may change course.

The topic selected is the implementation or deployment of already existing internet standards or protocols, like e.g. DNSSEC, RPKI, OWASP, BCP 38, etc., that on deployment would make the internet, thus all its users more safe from abuse and harm. Despite the fact that many involved stakeholders agree deployment is necessary, for some reason the internet world is slow in doing so.

This project tries to establish what the reasons for slow deployment are and to provide recommendations to different stakeholder groups how to speed up deployment, including a plan of action and who to involve in the debate. The outcome is a report published late January 2020. You can find more in-depth information here:

https://www.intgovforum.org/multilingual/content/implementing-internet-standards-and-protocols-for-a-safer-internet
This workshop will be, in part, an interactive one. All present will be divided into working groups tackling one specific topic on the deployment of internet standards. The agenda will be:
1) introduction ca. 5 minutes;
2) break out working groups, ca. 45 minutes;
3) reporting.

One break out group is specifically for the remote attendants, so they can actively participate. Each group is led by a moderator, assisted by a rapporteur.
The work carried out so far has led to five concept recommendations that aggregate the imput gathered so far. These are the working groups:

Concept recommendation 1. Create a (positive) business case for the deployment of internet standards (moderator Roelof Meijer, SIDN)

Concept recommendation 2. To deploy internet standards successfully it has to be incorporated in law, that is regulated actively (Mark Carvell, consultant, formerly Department of Culture, Media and Sports, U.K.)

Concept recommendation 3. To deploy standards successfully they need to be built into products (by design/default) (Paul Wilson, APNIC)

Concept recommendation 4. Make standards and their effect on internet security better known (Arda Gerkens, director EBOK, senator NL parliament)

Concept recommendation 5. (online) Make ICT and internet products more secure through education (TBC)

The goal is to:

1) Assess if there are current successful initiatives;
2) Provide one or more recommendations on the way forward;
3) Provide suggestions for an action plan for these recommendations;
4) Advise on who to involve and how to reach them.

As you can see, there is no predetermined outcome to this process, making your input important to the work in this pilot. You can select your own group of choice, though in the room it will be made certain that there is an equal split between the groups. Your experience and ideas are important for this project to succeed, so please feel welcome to join in and share your views actively.

UN Human Rights, UN Global Pulse and Access Now: Consultation on the report of the UN Secretary-General’s High-Level Panel On Digital Cooperation (recommendation 3a)
The June 2019 report of the UN Secretary-General’s High-Level Panel on Digital Cooperation, The Age of Digital Interdependencemakes a series of recommendations related to human rights and human agency. This open consultation will focus specifically on Recommendation 3a, which calls on diverse stakeholders to take part in a review of how States, international organizations and companies practically implement obligations and responsibilities under international human rights law in the digital age:
 
Recommendation 3a: Given that human rights apply fully in the digital world, we urge the UN Secretary-General to institute an agencies-wide review of how existing international human rights accords and standards apply to new and emerging technologies. Civil society, governments, the private sector and the public should be invited to submit their views on how to apply existing human rights instruments in a proactive and transparent process.
 
The report reaffirms that rights offline apply fully online, and recommendation 3a seeks to ‘identify how human rights can be meaningfully applied to ensure that no gaps in protection are caused by new and emerging digital technologies.’ The report notes, in reference to international human rights law that:
The rights these treaties and conventions codify apply in full in the digital age – and often with fresh urgency. Universal human rights apply equally online as offline… There is an urgent need to examine how time-honoured human rights frameworks and conventions – and the obligations that flow from those commitments – can guide actions and policies relating to digital cooperation and digital technology.’
As part of an open consultation process that has started just weeks ago in Geneva, the UN Human Rights Office, UN Global Pulse and Access Now invite to this meeting to gather ideas and feedback on the implementation of Recommendation 3a and to build a multistakeholder constituency interested in contributing to follow-up to Recommendation 3a. We would like identify the key areas where a review would be most needed and will thus discuss with all participants questions such as:
  • In which areas of digital technology policy and practice do you see the largest gaps in applying the international human rights framework?
  • How can we close this gap? What would good guidance look like?

Accessible ICT in education & employment - DCAD (Raum I)
ICT accessibility in education and employment (DCAD workshop)
Theme: Digital Inclusion
Subtheme(s): Accessibility
Design for Inclusion
Digital Divide

Organizer 1: Gunela Astbrink, Internet Society Accessibility Special Interest Group
Organizer 2: G. Anthony Giannoumis, Oslo Metropolitan University
Organizer 3: Andrea Saks

Speaker 1: Jorge Manhique, Civil Society, African Group
Speaker 2: Patrick Ojok, Academia, African Group
Speaker 3: Peter Crosbie, Civil Society, Western European and Others Group (WEOG)
Speaker 4: Anne Igeltjorn, Technical Community, Western European and Others Group (WEOG)

Key Contributor:
Abdoulaye Dembele, Civil Society, African Group
 
Policy Questions: 
1. What are the societal and cultural factors that become barriers in accessing education and employment for people with disability?
2. How do we ensure that physical accessibility to schools, universities and places of employment is linked with digital accessibility for people with disability?
3. Do user interfaces and websites help or hamper people with disability in improving their productivity in education and employment?
4. How can the global south influence ICT accessibility standards?
5. What is the way forward to remove the barriers in education and employment of people with disability?

Relevance to Theme: Accessibility for people with disability is fundamental to digital inclusion. Improved educational and employment opportunities are needed for equal participation of persons with disability in society. People with disability are, according to WHO, about 1.5 billion or 15% of the world’s population.
With technology being an integral part of education and employment, this roundtable is highly relevant to the theme of digital inclusion.

Relevance to Internet Governance: Education and employment are fundamental rights as outlined in Articles 23 and 26 of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. It enhances a human being’s sense of worth and belonging in society and contributes to the individual’s and a community’s social capital.
International instruments such as SDGs and the UN Convention on the Rights of Persons With Disabilities (UNCRPD) promote the accessibility of educational and employment opportunities for people with disability. The UNCRPD’s Article 9 on ICT accessibility and W3C's Web Content Accessibility Guidelines are clearly relevant to Internet Governance.

Format: Round Table - U-shape - 60 Min

Description: The roundtable will stimulate a wide-ranging discussion on addressing critical policy questions. The roundtable topic will be introduced and explained to set the scene. Speakers will be introduced and will give short opening statements of around two minutes each. The moderator will then lead the discussion based on the policy questions. The moderator will encourage participants to give case studies and examples to illustrate policy points.
For example, as students, accessibility or rather inaccessibility of online learning platforms is an issue that people with disability have to face. Some workplaces increasingly make use of online forums for performance, communication and collaboration for employees. The inaccessibility of these forums is creating a new set of problems for persons with disability.
When accessibility is considered as part of mainstream design considerations, it benefits many groups in many different situations. This is referred to as universal or inclusive design.
The roundtable will have a strong focus on issues in the global south. The discussion will be framed in terms of how accessibility and universal design of technologies are addressed in policy and legislation in the global south and will also offer practical examples of accessibility issues for staff and students in Ugandan public universities.
Understanding the practicalities of accessibility helps to focus policy debate. Once all the policy questions have been addressed, the moderator will summarise the main discussion points especially in terms of moving forward with key strategies to improve digital accessibility to education and employment for people with disability. The roundtable will conclude with closing remarks.
Agenda
Introduction and scene-setting – 3 minutes
Opening statements by speakers – 15 minutes
Guided discussion and debate based on policy questions - 35 minutes
Summary of discussion – 5 minutes
Closing remarks – 2 minutes

Expected Outcomes: The expected robust discussion in the roundtable should lead to a number of strategies to guide further policy discussions in removing barriers to accessing education and employment for people with disability. This will be documented and further discussed in forthcoming DCAD meetings.

Onsite Moderators:
Gunela Astbrink, Civil Society, Western European and Others Group (WEOG)

WS 59 Digital Sovereignty and Internet Fragmentation
The tension between national sovereignty and the global Internet is probably the single most fundamental Internet governance issue today.

The Internet protocols create a globally connected virtual space; in the technical structure of cyberspace distance and territory do not matter. Governmental authority, on the other hand, is bounded by geographic territory and each government is supposed to have supreme authority in its territory. Ever since the World Summit on the Information Society, governments have been trying to insert the concept of sovereignty into Internet governance discussions. On the other hand, many Internet users, platforms and service providers have been promoting the benefits of seamless global interconnection. There is a clash between the two distinct models of Internet governance. 

The purpose of this workshop is to explore the new discourse and practice of national sovereignty over cyberspace and to consider its implications for Internet openness vs. fragmentation. But in cybersecurity traditional security and stability practices have had to be modified, often relying on multistakeholder cooperation and cross-border operations in which the power of states is shared with many other actors. Today, in a context of cyber-attacks by state actors and a globalized digital economy, efforts to assert territorial control into cyberspace and project it onto all things digital are gathering momentum. 

The session is an interactive roundtable. It includes a diverse and expert set of prominent personalities:

  • Lise Fuhr, European Telecommunications Network Operators Association.
  • Vinton Cerf, Google
  • Ilona Stadnik, St. Petersburg University, Russia.
  • Alexander Isavnin, Internet Protection Society of Russia
  • Ambassador Achilles Zaluar, Foreign Ministry of Brazil
  • Xu Peixi, Communications University of China
  • Mona Badran, Cairo University Egypt

Moderators:
  • Dr. Milton Mueller, Professor, Georgia Institute of Technology and Director, Internet Governance Project 
  • Dr. William J Drake, International Fellow and Lecturer in the Media Change & Innovation Division of the Department of Communication and Media Research at the University of Zurich

Policy questions to be addressed:

1. The nature of national sovereignty and its extension to 'digital sovereignty' or ‘cyberspace sovereignty’
  • Is digital sovereignty compatible with the globalized access provided by the Internet protocols?
  • What is gained and what is lost by trying to make cyberspace conform to principles of territorial sovereignty?
  • How does sovereignty in cyberspace relate to/differ from traditional notions of sovereignty that shaped international communications policy since the 1850s?

2. National effects of digital sovereignty:
  • How do attempts by some countries to create a "sovereign Internet" affect the human rights of Internet users?
  • How do national boundaries on data flows affect economic development, competition and efficiency in the global digital economy?
  • How does sovereignty in cyberspace affect the security and privacy of Internet users?

3. Global effects of digital sovereignty:
  • Is digital sovereignty compatible with a global internet or will it lead to fragmentation of the infrastructure or the services and processes that it supports? 
  • How do national boundaries impact foreign firms seeking to operate locally? Are they consistent with international trade and other multilateral obligations?
  • Why and how are countries trying to create "national Internets?" 
4. Governance responses: 
  • Would it be better to conceive of cyberspace as a global commons similar to the high seas or outer space? What are the policy and governance implications? 
  • What blend of institutional settings would be useful in addressing the conflicts engendered by by strongly statist digital sovereignty practices? What would be the role of e.g. security arrangements, international trade agreements, international privacy agreements, MLATs and other efforts to deal with access issues of concern to law enforcement and others?
  • Is there any role in this discussion for multistakeholder cooperation, or is sovereignty a matter on which only states should engage? If there is a role, how could this be structured?

OF37 Future Internet Governance Strategy for the European Union
The interactive panel session at the Internet Governance Forum 2019 will include experts from different stakeholder groups to discuss their perspectives on the future of internet governance and the role of Europe, and aims to encourage audiences to join the conversation.

Fostering digital transformation is higher than ever on the political agenda of the European Union and has been identified as a priority for unlocking future growth in Europe. Cutting-edge digital technologies such as artificial intelligence or distributed ledger technologies do not only promise economic advantages, they are also shaping the structure of our society.
This rapid diffusion of digital technologies asks for increased inclusive, multistakeholder and multidisciplinary collaborations to manage the internet, implementing new governance mechanisms that are fit for purpose for these new challenges.
Internet governance is now a top priority of several different public institutions and is becoming central to the geopolitical debate. The EU, as an important global actor, will play a fundamental role in setting standards and regulatory frameworks, as well as becoming a global trusted hub for ethical technology development.


The panel discussion will then unfold around few main questions:

  1. Does internet governance still appeal to all stakeholders, working together to foster on the internet the values that Europe holds dear: openness, inclusivity, transparency, privacy, cooperation, and the protection of data? 
  2. What concrete governance steps need to be taken for ensuring that innovation is driven by an ethical, sustainable and human-centric internet?
  3. What role will the EU play as a global actor of internet governance in the coming decade?

The session opens a window for discussing fundamental values that lead the way towards a new approach in internet governance. Moderated by Antoine Vergne (Missions Publiques), the Open Forum panel will consist of five experts with diverse backgrounds relevant for the future of internet governance.

Panelists:
  • Andrea Beccalli, Director Stakeholder Engagement at ICANN (The Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers)- Technical community
  • Olivier Bringer, Head of Unit “Next-Generation Internet”, DG CNECT, European Commission-  International organisation
  • Maarit Palovirta, Director of Regulatory Affairs at ETNO (European Telecommunications Network Operators’ Association)-  Private sector

OF9 Strengthening Digital Ecosystem for Better Digital Inclusion
TERM OF REFERENCE
INDONESIA PROPOSAL WORKSHOP FOR IGF 2019
“Strengthening Digital Ecosystem for Better Digital Inclusion”

In today's digital era, certainty and guarantee for digital inclusion is needed. Digital inclusion is a framework for assessing and considering access to opportunities in a digital era. Digital inclusion requires availability: a). availability of high-speed internet access infrastructure, b) digital literacy education program for acceleration of
adoption, and c). information technology specifically in the form of online service platforms and useful applications.

Of course the three things above require a very strong adhesive, in the form of multistakeholder collaboration work. Multi stakeholders work of course has become something that is accepted and appreciated by various parties as a way of being transparent, accountable and legitimate in order to achieve common goals. Internet
access, digital literacy and information technology services, along with multistakeholder collaborative work form an ecosystem, a digital ecosystem, which ofcourse will differ in challenges and opportunities from one country to another. Digital literacy is very important to be implemented in the primary, secondary, and
even tertiary educational system because digital literacy matters as it helps student learning and citizenship by teaching students how to fine, evaluate, use and create digital content in meaningful ways. Digitally literate students will confident using digital content and tools in their learning. Digital literacy skills enable them to: find and access digital content that is fit for purpose; analyse and combine information to develop their own understandings; create and share digital content in purposeful ways. To better understand digital literacy, an understanding of the issues pertaining to digital literacy implementation is necessary. There are also impeding factors instigated by the government and the community in the implementation of digital literacy. Firstly,
there is the matter of government readiness, which is an internal issue of the government in its implementation of digital governance. Secondly, the digital divide may also be considered an impeding factor which originates from within the community itself in relation to the implementation of digital governance. However, from a number of existing studies, it can be surmised that government readiness on implementing digital governance may be measured based on some of the following items: infrastructure availability, both physical and non-physical; civil servant aptitude in operating ICT; national income, which influence the country’s access to technology; and government collaboration with other stakeholders in implementing digital governance policy agenda. For this reason, it is necessary to exchange ideas and brainstorming from related parties so that collaborative work in each country can strengthen the digital ecosystem, and of course, ultimately can support the realization of digital inclusion.

The Future of IoT : Toward More Secure and Human-Centered Devices

In 2016, the most prominent cyberattack on public record happened because of vulnerabilities in over 600,000 small, innocuous devices connected to the Internet. By harnessing the collective power of devices such as home routers and thermostats, cyber criminals were able to cripple major websites/systems such as power grid systems. This demonstration showed, without a doubt, that the security of the Internet of Things is a major concern.

From the consumer perspective, joint research between Internet Society and Consumers International has revealed some consumer attitudes toward the Internet of Things. A high number of people (75%) distrust the way data is shared. Consumers are also thinking about the need for more formal regulation in the market. It is likely that this demand will grow as information about the risks associated with connected products becomes more widespread.

Starting from those concerns, this session will identify the security challenges throughout the complete process of IoT service delivery – from the infrastructure to the application layer. Speakers from different stakeholder groups  will discuss the solutions and challenges from their perspectives and the complexities of maintaining security when considering the different private actors involved in producing, operating and using IoT devices and onto the rights, roles and responsibilities of consumers and regulators in using and overseeing such devices.  The panel will also share their policy views regarding providing security for the consumer, the data and the IoT devices themselves, to achieve the better IoT in the future.

WS 211 Value and Regulation of Personal Data in the BRICS
Over the past decade BRICS (Brazil, Russia, India, China and South Africa) alone have added more than one billion users to the world’s Internet population and, over the next decade, a further one billion of BRICS nationals will be connected to the Internet. This incredible number of individuals are personal data producers, innovators and consumers and enjoy an ample range of rights, shaped by the various regulatory instruments that BRICS countries have recently adopted and are adopting with regard to data protection.

Importantly, as the majority of the world’s Internet population is going to be increasingly BRICS centered, the policies adopted by these countries are likely to have global impact. In such perspective, this workshop will address the following policy questions:

  1. What national laws (or other type of normative acts) regulate the collection and use of personal data in the BRICS country?
  2. Do the laws recently adopted by BRICS countries apply to foreign entities that do not have physical presence in such countries?
  3. Are data protection laws adopted by BRICS countries based on fundamental rights defined in Constitutional law or International binding documents?
  4. Are the newly adopted frameworks converging or diverging from other existing frameworks such as the European one? And are BRICS national frameworks they converging amongst themselves?

WS 282 Data Governance by AI: Putting Human Rights at Risk?
Organized by the Internet Rights and Principles Dynamic Coalition (@netrights) and Amnesty International Germany (@AmnestyTech), this high-level roundtable considers the intensifying debate about how the roll-out of artificial intelligence capabilities - particularly those that can forgo the need for human intervention - needs to be more clearly aligned with international human rights law, and legal standards.

The principle that human rights exist online as they do offline (The Charter of Human Rights and Principles for the Internet; UN Human Rights Council, A/HRC/32/L.20, 2014; Council of Europe 2014) has gained a wide consensus across stakeholder groups. R&D and recent legislation around the world have flagged the rise in interest by regulators, public institutions, and service providers to develop and deploy AI systems across a range of services, public and business. These policies are becoming prioirties in internet and data governance policy agends at the local governmental, national and international level.

The session, invited speakers and those invited to present questions to the panelists, along with other interventions from the audience, will consider the relationship between AI and Human Rights in light of the question: What are the regulatory, technical, and ethical considerations for "Human Rights AI By Design"?

If you want to have your question considered as one posed to the panel, please send the question to info@irpcharter.org with the message heading "Question for WS282 IGF 2019"

Policy Question(s)

Two policy questions will guide discussions throughout the session. The first one deals with the different layers that, combined, enable the Internet to work. The second one delves into the issue of responsibility. - Policy question #1: Is “blocking access to illegal online content in the level of DNS infrastructure” as effective as “removing illegal content by taking action against the owner/publisher or the hosting providers”? - Policy question #2: Should DNS operators play any role in general efforts aimed at tackling illegal content on the Internet? If DNS operators have any role to play, should they bear the same responsibilities as hosting providers and publishers of illegal content or should they have a different legal treatment? What are the risks inherent to a one-size-fits-all approach to the matter? In the end, both questions require a risk assessment to allow for an evaluation of the direct and indirect implications of each possible response.

Format

Other - 90 Min
Format description: Town Hall model will be applied - auditorium or classroom

Description: Methodology & flow of session: The session will apply an adapted version of the “Town Hall model” to enable both a controlled as well as a free style of multistakeholder dialogue and aim at providing an overarching conversation by a very plural group of participants on all of the aspects inherent to the topic under discussion. A local stakeholder has been invited to bridge global discussions to the current landscape of Germany. It will be structured around a brief presentation of (a) the relevance of the topic, (b) its relation to Internet governance and the SDGs and (c) the policy questions selected for discussion by the onsite moderator (5min). Two brief interventions (10 minutes each) will kick start discussions: one will present a “global status” of the Internet and jurisdiction debate, with a special focus on activities that explored the DNS as an avenue to tackle illicit content and endangered the security, stability and resiliency of the Internet; the other one will present the European experience vis-à-vis the role of DNS operators in fighting illicit content online. After that, the moderator will entertain open-ended discussions about the first and the second policy questions in sequence (30 minutes each). In each 30-minutes segment, the moderator will give the floor in a random fashion (seeking to keep a multi-stakeholder balanced) to people on site and people following the session remotely. The audience will be able to engage with comments and questions (2 minutes each) directed to the invited speakers/participants, who cover a wide array of stakeholder groups as described in the “co-organizers” and “speakers” sections below (ccTLD and gTLD operators, technical community organisations, companies, government officials). Comments and questions might also be directed to other people in the audience. The last five minutes of the session will be used by the moderator to summarise discussions and point out further avenues for future dialogue. Synoptic session agenda: - Introductory remarks by the moderator - 5 minutes - Short introduction on the “global status” of the Internet and jurisdiction debate - 10 minutes - Short introduction on the European experience - 10 minutes - Open-ended Q&A session among participants (two segments) -- Policy question #1: Is “blocking access to illegal online content in the level of infrastructure” as effective as “removing illegal content by taking action against the owner/publisher or the hosting providers”? -- Policy question #2: Should DNS operators play any role in general efforts aimed at tackling illegal content from the Internet? If they have any role to play, should DNS operators bear the same responsibilities as hosting providers and publishers of illegal content or should they have a different legal treatment? What are the risks inherent to a one-size-fits-all approach to the matter? - Concluding remarks by the moderator - 5 minutes

Expected Outcomes: - Outreach with multiple and distinct stakeholders in order to spread the word and include more people on the debate. - Build new networks for discussion and collaboration on the topic. - Detailed report: map of good and bad examples of local legal frameworks applicable to the DNS as well as of policies and initiatives adopted by DNS operators to deal with illegal online content. - Potential impact on policy making through the diffusion of the workshop results.

Emerging technologies and their interfaces with inclusion, security and human ‎rights (NRIs Perspectives)
Description
This session will bring perspectives of communities gathered around the national, regional and youth IGF processes (NIRs). Delegated representatives of the NRIs will provide concrete cases of existing practices, challenges and already implemented or under implementation action plans and activities in the areas agreed by the NRIs.

The session discussion will illustrate existing challenges across developed and developing countries, as well as vulnerable groups through concrete cases of practices.
It will showcase the impact of the newly emerging technologies on various countries and regions, and related implications these have on inclusion, security and human rights. Concrete case-studies will be presented and actions and activities identified that are affecting change at the national levels.

More specifically, the session will address four (4) guiding policy questions to which concrete inputs will be addressed from the perspective of the NRIs discussions:
  1. How can (existing, new and emerging) digital technologies, support engagement of vulnerable groups at the national and regional levels? 
  2. How to ensure safe and secure online conditions for utilization of digital technologies? Can we trust these? 
  3. Are emerging digital technologies posing risks to human rights? How to prevent and tackle harmful consequences?
  4. How can we suggest policy options to enhance access to the least developed countries to emerging technologies?

WS 83 Different Parties' Role in PI Protection: AP's Practices

Full title: Different Parties' Roles in Personal Information Protection: Practices and Attempts in the View of the Asia-Pacific Region

Asia Pacific region is becoming the most active gathering place for technology innovation, it’s also the region that has the most prominent imbalance in data governance. However, in recent years, Asia Pacific countries has come to realize the importance of strengthening data governance, Australia, Singapore, Japan, Korea, India, China and so on have enacted laws & regulations or taken actions to build and amend their personal information protection systems. Over the past decade, experience in Internet governance has demonstrated the importance of multi-parties' participation. We hope the attempts and practices from government, civil society, technical community, private sector and individual will enrich the model of Internet governance. And we wish to work with different parties to form a joint force to promote personal information security and explore the value of the practice in a global perspective. 

We are honored create this panel for: 

  • Effectively publicize the measures and practices of personal information protection in the Asia Pacific Region.
  • Enhance participants' mutual understanding on the role that different subjects can play in personal information protection.
  • Enhance dialogue on personal information protection in different countries in the Asia Pacific region by initiating dialogue for sharing excellent practice and experience.

WS 179 Human-centered Design and Open Data: How to Improve AI
Machine Learning is leading a real data revolution. It is a sub-area of Artificial Intelligence (AI) that relies on data to identify pattern, classify, aggregate, in others words, to learn and generate values to societies. Data is the fuel for Machine Learning and the algorithms are becoming more powerful over the days. However, it is important to highlight the data is not equally available and distributed for everybody. Data may be a barrier of entry to ensure the global south can participate in this new economy. We argue that that data is being extracted from the global south and access is being monopolized by big players from the north, which is entrenching global south into a position of consumer, not producer of technology. In this workshop, we discuss how open data principles and web technologies could help to overcome some of the consequences of this data concentration and increase its quality. We also discuss how important is to bring a humanistic approach in Artificial Intelligence. We definitely need to involve people in the process of developing new cognitive technologies in order to find real requirements, decide what values should be incorporated in the system, evaluate its results and minimize its risks. In this case, we argue that different design approaches, such as Human-Centered and Interaction Design, is a powerful approach to be incorporate in machine learning projects once it helps to focus at the technological development based on people's needs. Last but not least, we also discuss the problematic of personal data and some technical and design initiatives that could help to re-decentralize the Web and give users control over their own data. Regarding all these issues, the importance of different design approaches, the use of open data principles and Web technologies are in the core of the debate. So, how do we contribute to inclusive economic development while attending people's need and protecting humans right? This emerging question will guide our workshop and it is the inspiration for all the policy questions detailed in the previous section. It will also give us theoretical and practical background to rethink aspects of data governance, data quality and AI development in order to be prepare us for immediate future.

Questions to stimulate a interdisciplinary debate about the importance of different design approaches, such as Human-Centered Design and Interaction Design, and open data principles to address two key challenges in data governance and AI:

  1. What are the developmental and ethical effects of data concentration? How can technical approaches address this challenge?
  2. To ensure the global south can participate in this new economy, to what extent and how can the open data agenda can contribute to ensuring equitable access to data? Is offering data under open data principles an effective strategy to achieve data quality?
  3. How can we ensure AI systems don't violate people's basic rights, and how can Open Data and different design approaches, such as Human-centered and Interaction Design help to prevent this?
  4. To what extent and how can different design approaches help evaluate and decide what values and priorities are programmed into the machines?
  5. How the inclusion in the design process can lead to AI that is better prepared to satisfy the needs of local people?
  6. Thus, how different design approaches may help to develop tools to give users the control over their own data, such as Web decentralization platforms?

Workshop agenda

  • Opening remarks on policies and practices regarding data governance and artificial intelligence by the moderator of the workshop (5 min)
  • Five interventions with use cases to generate the debate among the speakers and the audience about the importance of open data and different design approaches for data governance and Artificial Intelligence (20 minutes)
  • Experts and the audience will debate focusing on the development of a roadmap to address possible strategies for the data concentration and humanistic approach in AI (20min).

WS 63 Usual Suspects: Questioning the Cybernorm-making Boundaries
Workshop Description, here.

Developing and implementing cybernorms is very much an Internet governance problem. This may be the year where the IGF community will rally around this notion.
This workshop will facilitate a dialogue between the policy and technical communities on the operationalisation of cybernorms. In particular, we will explore the technical angle of implementing three widely agreed norms: GCSC Norm 1 about protecting the public core; GCSC Norm 2 about protecting electoral systems; and UNGGE Norm 7 about answering requests for assistance.

Governance is about principles and values, wants and needs. But any governance decision eventually ends up at implementation. Sound decision-making about implementation relies on access to quality information – particularly, in this case, quality technical knowledge about the kinds of opportunities and challenges that will arise from the operationalisation of cybernorms.

Cybernorms are political – there is no question of that. And as a political instrument, geopolitics plays out through red lines, negotiations, alliances etc. Many in the technical community may find cybernorms a futile and irrelevant discourse, but we believe this can change through a constructive dialogue between the policy and technical communities.

OF35 Strengthening Digital Transformation through Digital Securit
TERM OF REFERENCE
INDONESIA PROPOSAL WORKSHOP FOR IGF 2019
“Strengthening Digital Transformation through Digital Security”

The unstoppable development of internet and easy access to social media today is shadowed by the spread of fake news. This emerging phenomenon has become such a worry for government around the world. Looking at trust in the media, it is important to recognize that not all countries place the same level of their awareness of misinformation and disinformation. Tackling the spread of online fake news is not an easy task for government. Increasingly, policymakers around the world are searching new ways to deal with this problem. Instead, policymakers around the world should look forward initiatives and mechanisms that would encourage the formulation of regulation to deal with harmful forms of content. At the global level, one-time MIT researchers reviewed a Twitter data set from 2006 to 2017, and analysed about 126 thousand rumours spread by around 3 million users. Then the fact is that the correct dissemination of the story (including clarification news) takes 6 times longer than the hoax to reach the level of exposure with the same number of people. Not only that, false news turns out that 70 percent is more retweeted than the actual story version Indonesian government hold weekly ‘fake news’ briefings which aims to, at least, minimize the spread of disinformation in the social media. It also designed encourage Indonesians to think more critically about the news they consume. In addition, MCIT have designed a website called ‘stophoax.id’ that can accessible for public to cross-check the news and post the fake information that have been analyzed by the ministry’s team. Moreover, the National Police, particularly through its cyber crime directorate, have a procedure to be followed
for fake news prevention called ‘preventive measures’, that is boosting digital literacy and diction so that the people can be wiser, smarter and more polite in using social media. According to forecast, the number of internet users in Indonesia is projected to grow to 150 million in 2023 (107 million by now). In 2014, it was estimated that around 87 percent of households in Indonesia had a mobile phone. Smartphone ownership in Indonesia has risen from 32.6 to 43.2 percent between 2014 and 2017. The number of smartphone users in
Indonesia could reach as high as 96.2 million by the year 2021. But digital literacy has not followed.

In January 2019, Ministry of Communication and Informatics of Indonesia stated there were 175 hoaxes, and increasing to 353 news in February. The fact was so apprehensive considering Indonesia as the fourth most populous country on earth, and poses a large and fast-growing market for mobile technologies. Some strategic steps could be implemented by governments such as: deeper systematic issues on how social media algorithms incentivize the spread of false or other forms of negative content; implement positive intervention include verifying the identity of people and organizations; regulation for social media and online news platform companies to create a public archive of all advertisements bought and sold to hold certain groups accountable for any dark advertisement.

Promoting Data Free Flow with Trust in a Digitally Connected World〜Osaka Track, Biarritz Strategy, and the Future~
IGF Berlin 2019 Main Session on:
Promoting Data Free Flow with Trust in a Digitally Connected WorldOsaka Track, Biarritz Strategy, and the Future~

1. Brief Overview

The world is facing a crucial point in time when the flow of data, ICT products and services are subject to scrutiny and international trade enabling the flows is also subject to intensive discussion. While international discussion on how to further facilitate the free flow of data and ICT-related free trade which are indispensable for SDGs-oriented digital innovation and economic growth in every country is ongoing, there are growing concerns about privacy, data protection, intellectual property rights, and security. With the complex background and also taking into account the legislative and enforcement jurisdictions of each state, this main session sheds light on the following questions:
1) What consensus can be achieved on the free flow of data, ICT products and services in a digitally connected world?
2) What is the role of international bodies such as WTO and others?
3) What are the applicable rules?
4) Are there any conflicts of laws (extraterritorial effects of state actions) and how to solve them?
5) What are the roles of bilateral or plurilateral trade agreements?
6) How to ensure the implementation of international rules and principles in each member state?

2. Purpose
The purpose of this main session is to facilitate a thoughtful dialogue on how to further promote the free flow of data across borders while addressing various challenges related to privacy, data protection, intellectual property rights, and security, with the concept of “trust”. This will be done taking into account the progress of digital transformation as well as recent geopolitical and trade tensions which have impacted the global economy.

3. Policy Questions to be Discussed
1) New laws and regulatory initiatives impacting data flows and trust are adapted at increasing speeds in jurisdictions around the world. New statistics and research show a lack of coordination between those actions. Do you think we need more coordination, and can such uncoordinated actions and the passing of new laws impact the future of cross-border data flows and trust even if not intended to do so? Will we reach a point of no return after which joint actions in favour of cross-border data flows and trust will be futile because of the compiled uncoordinated actions?

2) According to the Internet & Jurisdiction Global Status Report, only 14 of stakeholders (governments, companies, IGOs, civil society) say we have the right frameworks and standards in place to address cross-border legal challenges in cyberspace. How can we enhance legal interoperability to ensure cross-border data flows in the future? What norms and frameworks are needed?

3) What is the value of multi-stakeholder cooperation to ensure cross-border data flows and trust? Are we taking concrete actions quick enough for the future of the cross-border internet?

Conclusions of European stakeholder consultation on the report “The Age of Digital Interdependence”
Conclusions of European stakeholder consultation on the report “The Age of Digital Interdependence”
 
Organiser: EuroDIG
 
Background
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
https://comment.eurodig.org/digital-cooperationreport/comments-by-email/
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.

Governance Challenges in the Digital Age: Finding New Tools for Policy-Making
Overview
Digital technologies are transforming society at a pace never seen before, in all kind of fields from public safety, access to information for the exercise of political rights, to welfare benefit allocation or healthcare services provision. This should be accompanied by a transformation of the approaches to designing the practices, policies, laws and regulations needed for effective governance of these technologies. At IGF 2018, the UN Secretary-General articulated a growing interest in finding ways to go beyond working in silos and become truly multidisciplinary in the ways we think about the governance of emerging technologies. It is hoped that bringing more diverse voices to the table will enable more holistic policy-making which can strike the right policy balances. Should such an evolution be seen as a threat to the sovereign role of governments to protect their citizens, or as an important tool for improving decision-making? Also, what are the limitations and appropriate boundaries in expanding policy-making to encompass a broader range of disciplines and stakeholders? We aim to come away with a better appreciation of how and when more inclusive policy-making approaches can enable Internet Governance to keep pace with the development of new technologies.
Background 
Technology deployment is in some cases the result of private companies development of business models, but also the result of public policies that foster its adoption, and many times a result of complex public-private partnerships. This complex ecosystem calls for a diversity of innovative approaches to provide governance structures that understand the impact of different clashing incentives and that are fit for this constantly evolving environment. This suggests a need to revisit the current understanding of policy-making from a technical perspective, but also as an exercise of sovereignty and participatory engagement of society at large. Multidisciplinary approaches can be understood to involve a full range of perspectives and stakeholders, in this context incorporating actors, disciplines and expertise that have not so far been engaged in Internet Governance discussions. This means looking to a wider spectrum of social sciences and behavioral studies, for instance, but also to include of traditionally marginalized groups, and even those have previously refrained from participating due to a negative view of ways in which Internet has evolved with minimal direct regulation.
This session will seek to hear critical self-reflections about how Internet governance has been conducted so far from a diversity of perspectives. The aim is to gain a deeper understanding of what multidisciplinary policy-making means for the crafting of 21st century technology governance. We will hear about several conceptual frameworks as well as concrete experiences of practical implementations in the fields of AI, cybersecurity and online content moderation.
We will invite speakers and participants of the session to tackle questions in a collective critical exercise that does not take for granted what has so far been done in technology governance. For example, to what extent, and in what ways, can multidisciplinary policy-making help governments and society address policy problems in relation to frontier and emerging technologies? What strategies can governments and private actors develop to prompt broader stakeholder discussion in issues around frontier technologies? To what extent should multidisciplinary approaches be open, inclusive and multistakeholder, or are they places where a more limited set of expert input is appropriate? What should be the role of governments in technology governance? What are the advantages and limitations of private self-regulatory initiatives?
Agenda
Moderator - David Kelly, Policy Adviser, Office of the Secretary-General, United Nations 

- Part 1 – the What and the Why 
The first part of the session will provide for a general discussion about who needs to be involved in the governance of frontier technologies, and how it can be done in innovative ways that acknowledge the social impact of emerging technologies. This includes reflecting on what should be the appropriate roles for binding laws, regulations and multilateral solutions, on the one hand, and soft governance mechanisms, e.g. norms and standards, on the other. The speakers will share their experiences of designing policy-making approaches and mechanisms to address the challenges of governance in the digital age and how those approaches have evolved to better capture the impacts of emerging technologies.
Policy Questions:
  • What are the key elements of a truly multidisciplinary policy-making process? And what are the underlying conditions for creating and continuously supporting this environment?
  • Which perspectives, stakeholders and disciplines need to be involved? And to what extent should approaches be truly open to all vs being focused on specific interests considered relevant to a particular policy question?
  • What are the challenges to putting in place theoretical frameworks when it can prove difficult to foster collaboration among different stakeholders?
Speakers:
  • Molly Lesher, Senior Policy Analyst, Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) [Intergovernmental Organization]
  • Sophie Peresson, Director, Innovation for All, International Chamber of Commerce (ICC) [Private Sector]
  • Sheetal Kumar, Senior Programme Lead, Global Partners Digital (GPD) [Civil society]
  • Ayobangira Safari Nshuti, Member of Parliament, the Democractic Republic of Congo

- Part 2 – the How

The second part of the session will hear from people with first-hand experience of how multidisciplinary policy-making happens in practice. Looking at examples ranging from cybersecurity to AI and content moderation, we will discuss what barriers exist to putting in place more multidisciplinary and integrated policy frameworks, and how stakeholders can work together to address them? What are the current blind spots in setting truly multidisciplinary policies? By looking at different models, we hope to learn not just what has worked well, but what have been the challenges and roadblocks of incorporating different types and levels of expertise in the development of public policy.
Policy questions:
  • What are examples of attempts to build multidisciplinary policy-making processes for public policy already being developed on Internet Governance across the globe?
  • What we can learn from them? What worked well? What needs improvement? Are there lessons to be learned from private sector policy-making?
Speakers:
  • Kenneth Adu-Amanfoh, Executive Director, Africa Cybersecurity and Digital Rights Organisation, (ACDRO) [Civil society]
  • Olaf Kolkman, Chief Internet Technology Officer, Internet Society (ISOC) [Technical community] 
  • Lisa Dyer, Director of Policy, Partnership on AI to Benefit People and Society [Multiple stakeholder group involvement]
  • Zoe Darme, Manager, Governance, Facebook [Private sector]

OF40 EU Delegation & Youth IGF Movement
Objective
The main idea of the Open Forum is to share with the IGF multistakeholder community the concept and the outcomes of the Youth IGF Movement meetings that took place around the world. The format of the Open Forum is intended to be a debate between the Youth IGF Movement leaders and experts of the Information Society, namely the members of the EU Delegation to the IGF, as well as the representatives of the Asia-Pacific community, African countries and Latin America. We would like also to invite the leaders of the private sector for discussion with these young leaders. The Open Forum welcomes the representatives of other youth initiatives to enagage in an inclusive dialogue with the experts of the IGF community. The discussion between the experts and the young representatives will be focused on the main outcomes of the meetings organised by the young at national and regional levels. A number of pilot projects that have been created by the youth as a result of national and regional YIGF meetings will be presented. One of the focus points will be to see how the recommendations which emerged from the Open Forum in 2018 have been taken into consideration at national and regional levels and what are the achievements.
The Open Forum  topics for discussion will be: online safety, counterfeited products online, cybersecurity and the DNS  industry ecosystem and the role of the young leaders.

WS 182 Data Governance for Smarter City Mobility
The workshop focusses on the question of "How should data in Smart Cities be governed to foster the creation and delivery of effective, innovative and sustainable mobility and transportation services for citizens, while respecting their privacy and other fundamental rights?"

The goal of the workshop is to:
  • identify conflicts of interests in data (sharing) in the context of Smart City Mobility, based on the impulse statements as well as the own knowledge and experiences of the workshop participants. 
  • discuss possible data governance solutions  (e.g. principles for data governance), based on the impulse statements as well as the evidence from practice and the experiences and interests of the diverse stakeholders identified in the workshop itself.
  • develop concrete recommendations and best practices for urban planners, municipal administrations, civic initiatives, technology providers and other relevant actors

Workshop agenda:

The workshop will begin with a brief introduction of the workshop goal and format as well as the challenges and possible solutions of data Governance in connection to mobility in Smart Cities that we have identified in our working group’s current research. It will be followed by three to four impulse presentations on the core challenges of data governance in Smart Cities (see speakers list below).

The round table discussions will follow the Purpose to Practice - workshop format, where the stakeholders initially shape together all the elements that will determine the success of their initiative and hence a shared purpose. All additional elements—principles, participants, structure, and practices—are designed to help achieve the purpose.

Finally, each of the round table groups presents the results of their discussion, e.g. identified conflicts of interests in data (sharing) in the context of Smart City Mobility, possible data governance solutions as well as recommendations for the relevant actors in this field (esp. urban planners, municipal administrations, civic initiatives, technology providers).

DC on Community Connectivity (DC3)

Community Networks: Policy and Regulations

Over the past 4 years, the Dynamic Coalition on Community Connectivity (DC3) has successfully demonstrated that Community Networks (CNs) are feasible options to expand connectivity and that the communities behind CNs are reliable partners. The research and engagement promoted by DC3 has aroused the attention of an incredibly wide range of actors, including the International Telecommunication Union (ITU) that co-sponsored the 2018 outcome, elaborated by DC3: the Community Network Manual: How to Build the Internet Yourself.

Besides the research demonstrating the feasibility and interest of CNs and instructions on how to build them, it is time to provide concrete suggestions for policymakers on how to facilitate CNs. To this extent, DC3 members have jointly elaborated the 2019 Annual Outcome document dedicated to Building Community Networks Policies: A Collaborative Governance towards Enabling Frameworks.

Hard copies of the booklet will be distributed at the DC3 session. The volume was developed in a participatory manner by DC3 members, starting from works developed by various CN advocates and researchers over the past years. Such works include the Declaration on Community Connectivity; the netCommons the Open letter to EU policy makers, the Declaration of the First Latin American Summit of Community Network, etc.

The goal of the DC3 outcome document is to act as a working document from which all interested stakeholders can take inspiration to start constructive discussions on how to facilitate CNs through the most appropriate policy frameworks

The IGF session will have the following agenda:

  • Introduction and presentation of DC3 and its work
  • Keynote remarks
  • Presentations of case studies
  • Discussion of the proposed policy elements
  • Discussion of next steps and further actions for DC3

DC on Public Access in Libraries (DC-PAL)
This session will look at how public access in libraries features in national broadband strategies designed to support digital inclusion. As neutral, welcoming public centres, libraries have a particular role in achieving both specific internet policy objectives and the Sustainable Development Goals more broadly. Alongside schools, libraries are noted as key venues not only for providing connectivity (as a stepping-stone towards, and a complement to, home connections), but also as places where people can develop digital skills and confidence. Women and other often marginalised groups have benefitted particularly from the possibilities offered by libraries. Speakers will share experience of government programmes which have looked to realise this potential, describing both the logic for working with libraries, the potential to reach marginalised groups, and the achievements (both in terms of connectivity and positive side-effects) that were achieved. This session will support the Dynamic Coalition on Public Access in Libraries’ 2019 report, focusing on broadband strategies and how libraries can support these.

WS 244 Inclusion & Representation: Enabling Local Content growth
This workshop will examine how locally relevant content can be best supported through a wide array of various creative programmes, initiatives, and incentives.
Additionally, the workshop will look at how locally relevant content can facilitate Internet adoption and digital inclusion by creating meaningful online spaces for communities. Local content often thrives in enabling environments that have the appropriate policy measures and services. This workshop will explore the following questions:

  • What type of policy environment is needed to support locally relevant content?
  • What are examples of successful programmes and initiatives that have supported a local content ecosystem?
  • What are the barriers to supporting local content?
  • How can supporting local content help drive Internet connectivity and adoption?
  • How can developing countries successfully establish flourishing local content ecosystems? Additionally, how can developing countries ensure that those local content ecosystems are sustainable?
