The Internet & Jurisdiction Project was founded in January 2012. Providing a neutral platform for a global multi-stakeholder dialogue process, it facilitates the elaboration of a transnational due process framework to deal with tensions related to online content. Over 70 key actors from international organizations, states, Internet platforms, technical operators, civil society and academia are actively engaged. Since its inception, the I&J Project organized 13 meetings in 10 countries, including Brazil, Europe, India and US, as well as outreach sessions in over 20 countries at global, regional and national Internet Governance events. The I&J Observatory with 32 experts from 26 top institutions in 13 countries supports the evidence-based dialogue process and produce the monthly Retrospect newsletter.
The Flash Session at the 2014 IGF in Istanbul is an opportunity to update all participants on progress achieved in the dialogue process. A transnational due process framework establishing procedural interfaces between states, platforms or operators, and users is being developed to handle transborder requests for domain seizures, content takedowns and access to user data. It aims at establishing transparency and due process in the submission and treatment of such requests.
The I&J Project will present the outcomes of the I&J Project since the Internet Governance Forum 2013 in Indonesia and solicit participants for feedback on the different building blocks and operational components of the proposed framework.Speakers:
