Pre-Event 5 - As a stakeholder in the digital transformation, can civil society make its voice heard? (German Ministry of Interior)

The digital transformation is meant to improve the lives of everyone, but what is the actual bearing on the society? Will the digital transformation bring benefit for everyone? Is no one left behind? The panel discussion targets to understand the impact of the digital transformation on society and tries to find answers on following questions:

  • In which digitized world do we want to live in?
  • How can we contribute to a value-based and public interest-oriented digital transformation?
  • What is to do to ensure that everyone can participate in the digital world in a self-determined way?

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?

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.
