Pre-Conference Seminar for CLDP Supported Delegations
The Commercial Law Development Program (CLDP) plans to facilitate IGF attendance and participation by a small number of officials of one or more government and representatives of NGOs or journalistic organizations.  These attendees will likely have limited or no experience in attending IGFs.  CLDP will organize a pre-conference for the attendees, which will include presentations by and discussions with leading experts on IGF-related issues.  This event would be designed for the benefit of the invited attendees, although all would be welcome to observe.  CLDP is a part of the  United States Department of Commerce.  It provides technical assistance to developing and post-conflict nations around on legal and regulatory matters through training, consultations, and support of the exchange of information and international best practices.  In the ICT sector, it works to improve access to information and promote the development of a modern and state of the art communications sector.

The discussion will center around the following questions:

 

  • To what extent has a people-centred, inclusive and development-oriented Information Society developed in the 10 years since the WSIS?

 

  • How far do you consider the implementation of WSIS outcomes to have been achieved?

 

  • What are the challenges to the implementation of WSIS outcomes and to the emergence of a people-centred, inclusive and development-oriented Information Society?

 

  • What should be the priorities for stakeholders seeking to achieve WSIS outcomes and progress towards the Information Society in the post-2015 development agenda?

Empowering grassroots level organizations through the .NGO top level domain

The .ORG is one of the globally identified domains, which have been shaping the identity of numerous global communities such as businesses, educational and academic institutions, large scale and small scale enterprises, communities, campaigns and individuals. Numerous entities all over the world today rely on the .ORG extension to propagate their various objectives ranging from strictly economic, commercial to more widespread political and social causes.

Globally across the Internet, the .ORG domain epitomizes a symbol of trust, global recognition, integrity, reliability and a tool to give that much needed edge for any organization to become visible and carve an identity in the highly networked information age today. The information producers and consumers on the web today not only strive to seek a virtual face and identity, but also seek an identity that, will speak volumes for the entity it represents to validate its authenticity. This is where the .ORG has been successful over the years in creating a benchmark standard for an organization’s visibility and credibility over the Internet.

The voluntary segment in India has been prominent since the post-independence days. However, these groups achieved a status of “non-governmental organization” (NGO) only in the 1980s. NGOs have had a huge role to play in India’s democratic functioning of the society by means of aiding Government agencies in addressing grassroots level issues or by bridging gaps in various development aspects of the society. Hence, these bodies come second in line to the government in terms of possessing huge amounts of information laying in the bottom most segment of the society.

India is home to more than 3.3 million NGOs, Self-help groups and other such units. However, more than 70% of them do not have a virtual face despite doing substantial ground work and having huge repository of information and content probably due to lack of funds, lack of accessibility to resources and lack of awareness. All this accumulates to the volumes of information that is just waiting to be showcased and tapped!

The Digital Empowerment Foundation who, actively works in information dissemination, community empowerment and digital content creation at the bottom most level using ICTs, found it necessary to tap such institutions and equip them with ICT and Internet tools to create a virtual presence and identity.

DEF along with Public Interest Registry (PIR) conceptualized the “eNGO” programme to address these issues. The “eNGO” is a web enabled facility for civil society and non-governmental organizations working at grassroots level to harness the power of modern information and communication technologies to help in dissemination of information, reach out to a wider audience and overall help achieve a holistic ICT integrated development in the communities served by these organizations.

The “eNGO” program since its inception has seen empowered over 2000 NGOs across India, Africa and South Eastern Countries and registered and created the much needed virtual presence and identity that has been lacking for these entities owing to lack of funds or awareness.

The session will make an effort to explain how eNGO programme has enabled grassroots organizations to not only must an entity have a virtual face and identity, the identity must also be such that it invokes a sense of recognition, integrity about its goals and trust and helps the organization achieve the visibility that it seeks. While the global world goes about creating online identities for information exchange and networking, only those organizations that have identities to vouch for their trustworthiness and reliability of the source of information will gain the extra mileage.

Format: Open session and small group work with moderator. The session will begin with brief comments by participant on priorities for this drafting process and then break-out groups.

A safe, secure, sustainable Internet and the role of stakeholders

The prevailing myth that the Internet is akin to the “Wild West”, unruly and unmanageable, and that this is somehow a virtue, is outdated, at odds with the objective of creating a ubiquitous and trusted environment which everybody can use with confidence. We all want the online world to be safe just as we do the offline.

The needs and interests of a range of vulnerable groups, perhaps particularly our children, are of major concern in this context but in truth this matters to all of us both as citizens and consumers. To date, too often anyone who proposes new approaches to addressing risks and challenges on the Internet is tagged with the unjustified moniker of “censor” or as someone who wants to hamper or restrict innovation. Freedom of expression, the rule of law, and rational approaches to promote a safe, secure and sustainable Internet are mutually reinforcing, and as time moves on they have to be reconciled.

This session will discuss these challenges and look at how all stakeholders, including Internet intermediaries, have a role to play in addressing them while advancing trust in the Internet so that it can continue to flourish. Among other things specifically the meeting will address:

1. Personal data theft 

2. The consumer harm associated with counterfeit and pirate sites

3. The distribution of child abuse images online

Governance in a Mobile Social Web – Finding the Markers

Chair: Youth representing the Insafe network;

Assistant chair: Janice Richardson, Senior Advisor at Brussels-based European Schoolnet 

Session description:

In today’s society, children move seemingly seamlessly in and out of the rapidly evolving online social web, almost as soon as they are able to walk and talk. Wearable technology is fast coming into vogue and technology in our homes may well soon monitor our daily activities. As a USA Supreme Court judge recently ruled in a landmark decision on cyber-rights, our mobile phone has become “the sum of an individual’s private life” . In parallel with these developments, discussions on the online well-being of children on the internet have moved from their protection against harmful content and contacts to protection of their fundamental rights and responsibilities. The pendulum has now swung from safety to citizenship. What skills do children and young people need to develop if they are to cope with the challenges of a connected society, what is the role of the public, private and civil sectors, and of families and schools, in building these skills? How do we share the responsibility and what role does internet governance play?

The session will begin with each of 6 panellists setting out their priorities in a 5-minute plenary presentation to show the direction in which they would like their group to work. Participants will then choose a group to which they will actively contribute. The aim is to define and prioritise key aspects, roles and strategies in an interactive logical framework maitrix. A final plenary summary will enable participants to vote electronically on their priorities. Remote participants will be encouraged to contribute actively throughout the whole session.

 Refreshment will be served after the workshop as a means of encouraging ongoing discussion and networking.

  • Subject matter expected to be discussed.

- Issues raised by very young children going online

- The increasing amount of cyberhate – is it an issue?

- The reframing of the risks/opportunities agenda in terms of children’s rights

- The challenge of new/smart/personal devices

 Type of session: capacity building session with panel and interactive discussions

 Evaluation Assessment Criteria: level of interactive discussion and voting; number of blogs and tweets; short on-site evaluation by participants; take-up of ideas in IGF sessions on child protection, education, children’s rights; value of logical framework matrix in coming months.

WS112: Implications of post-Snowden Internet localization proposals
Following the 2013-2014 disclosures of large-scale pervasive surveillance of Internet traffic, various proposals to "localize" Internet users' data and change the path that Internet traffic would take have started to emerge.

Examples include mandatory storage of citizens' data within country, mandatory location of servers within country (e.g. Google, Facebook), launching state-run services (e.g. email services), restricted transborder Internet traffic routes, investment in alternate backbone infrastructure (e.g. submarine cables, IXPs), etc.

Localization of data and traffic routing strategies can be powerful tools for improving Internet experience for end-users, especially when done in response to Internet development needs. On the other hand, done uniquely in response to external factors (e.g. foreign surveillance), less optimal choices may be made in reactive moves.

How can we judge between Internet-useful versus Internet-harmful localisation and traffic routing approaches? What are the promises of data localization from the personal, community and business perspectives? What are the potential drawbacks? What are implications for innovation, user choice and the availability of online services in the global economy? What impact might they have on a global and interoperable Internet? What impact (if any) might these proposals have on user trust and expectations of privacy?

The objective of the session is to gather diverse perspectives and experiences to better understand the technical, social and economic implications of these proposals.

WS93: One World, Diverse Content and Flexible Access [CB]
The impact of disseminating local content extends beyond national, and linguistic boundaries. It shapes up the diversified cultural identities of nations while catalyzing the interweaving of the information and knowledge societies.

The workshop brings together prominent entities with different backgrounds that have significantly hit the headlines as pioneers and promoters of multilingual content creation and dissemination. Speakers will highlight the different approaches in creating and availing digital content and present monitoring tools while opening a vivid channel of discussion with the audience. The dialog aims to reveal the challenges encountered to fulfill accessibility in terms of policy making and other issues.

The diversified approaches presented by the panel will shed light on how cultural and linguistic diversity can be maintained within the information and knowledge societies using information and communication technologies, while inspiring decision makers on how the enabling environment can be created and supported by governments. Speakers from Australia, Europe, USA, Africa,the Middle East and representatives of International Organizations, illustrate best practices of modeling digital content in several contexts.

Special attention will be paid to monitoring and promotion of local content creation and access in lesser-used and languages in danger. Over 50% of some 6700 languages spoken today are in danger of disappearing. Many other languages will disappear in near future and some will lose their influence and relevance at global, national and local levels.

The workshop aims to be a common ground opening rich discussion between diverse stakeholders aiming to safeguard unbounded access while respecting, preserving and promoting the diversity within the information society.

WS129: Internet tech and policy: privacy, data flows and trust
Evolving Internet technologies, including the cloud, big data, and data analytics hold the promise to bring us profound benefits by addressing important societal issues in healthcare, education, transportation, energy and security, to name a few. But the power of these and related tools also raise important societal and legal concerns, including privacy, data security, and issues of jurisdiction and competition.

All stakeholders in the Internet ecosystem have an expectation of data protection and privacy of their communications. Businesses, governments, civil society and users are all presently engaged in dialogues that aim to restore and ensure trust in evolving Internet technologies through technical measures, legal developments, and policy advocacy.

The workshop participants will discuss key elements of these dialogues including but not limited to encryption and other privacy enhancements; the rule of law; the interplay of innovation, data use and societal benefits with risk analysis and mitigation; and the need to facilitate cross-border data flows, while ensuring data privacy and security.

WS30: Internet&jobs: creative destruction or destructive creation?
The Internet is viewed as a source of employment growth in the ICT sector and in creating new opportunities in the overall economy. However, it is also clear that the Internet is imposing a significant reorganization on businesses, affecting labor demand and therefore employment.
The net effects of the Internet on jobs are still poorly understood. Unemployment represents a significant challenge in OECD countries. In particular, the level of youth unemployment is alarming. The necessary condition to tackle these challenges is to reignite growth and ensure people have the necessary education, skills and Internet access to take advantage of new opportunities.
Technological change has always had disruptive effects on employment, at least at the early stage of its diffusion. Nonetheless, while for earlier technologies, such as the steam engine or electricity, the growth of productivity, employment and median income was in the same direction, with ICTs the growth of productivity has seemingly been decoupled from jobs and income. According to Brynjolfsson and McAfee this divergence is created by the very nature of the digital economy able to offer goods and services to an increasing number of additional customers at a cost close to zero.
The workshop will focus on how the Internet could help in reducing this divergence, contributing to the creation of the new ICT and entrepreneurial skills required by the labor market and allowing for increasing significantly scale and customization of actions. Furthermore, the workshop will explore how more inclusive global Internet governance could improve social equality.

WS68: Small Island Developing States (SIDS) Roundtable: The Information Society vs Basic Infrastructural Needs
Small Island Developing States (SIDS) Roundtable: Do the elements required to promote the Information Society/Knowledge Economy complement "basic" infrastructural development needs?

Running concurrently with the 2014 IGF is the 3rd International United Nations Conference on Small Island Developing States (SIDS), which will be held from 1 to 4 September 2014 in Apia, Samoa (preceded by activities related to the conference from 28 to 30 August 2014, also in Apia, Samoa). The Conference will focus the world’s attention on a group of countries that remain a special case for sustainable development in view of their unique and particular vulnerabilities.

Indeed, this focus is more than timely, given the increasing interest in the economies of SIDS by international Telecommunications companies, matched with the ongoing social, economic and environmental challenges faced within.

Within small island states, basic infrastructural challenges at the social and economic levels have often taken precedence of what may termed "higher order needs".

In other words, issues such as the availability of affordable healthcare, free universal primary and secondary education, safe, potable drinking water, food security, roads and transportation, crime and safety, among others will, in any Government national agenda, naturally take precedence over the development of a knowledge economy, increased and more equitable access to information and knowledge as well as the ability to compete, on more equal terms with counterparts in the developed world.

The 2014 SIDS Roundtable will tackle this constant dilemma and profer solutions to countries engaged in this balancing act on a daily basis and answer the provocative question - "How can issues relating to Internet Governance and Development in Small Island Developing States contribute to solving social and economic challenges?"

AGENDA

1. Opening & Introductions : Moderator (10 mins)

2. Discussant Statements: Maureen Hilyard, Carlton Samuels, Patrick Hosein, Karim Attoumani Mohamed, Anju Mangal (20 mins)

3. Roundtable Discussion with "Kickstart" Questions (30 mins)

- How can issues relating to Internet Governance and Development in Small Island Developing States contribute to solving social and economic challenges?

WS7: From ideas to solutions: Funding challenges for Internet dev
This roundtable will explore the challenges that Internet development innovators faced when trying to make the leap from ideas to solutions, focusing on those ones posed by access to funding, funding mechanisms and business development.

Short interventions from speakers representing the interest from governments, aid agencies, traditional and alternative funding mechanisms, crowd funding platforms, grant and awards competitions will provide a background for funding mechanisms available for those generating innovative solutions for Internet development. Contributors will identify the strengths and weaknesses of those mechanisms.

Short interventions from the Seed Alliance award winners (newcomers to the IGF) will provide examples of the limitations they see in their specific contexts to make use of those mechanisms such as language, proposal development, business case development, regulations, to name a few.

The interventions will be prepared to encourage the audience to make recommendations.

The group will discuss how to incorporate/develop a culture of social responsibility on the IT sector.

WS89: Multi-Stakeholder Engagement: Imperative for Accessibility

Persons with disabilities and older persons represent an average of 15% of any country's population. Most IGF members involved in promoting Internet usage in their respective countries face challenges of low levels of Internet adoption amongst these groups.  The UN Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities (CRPD) is the first Human Rights Treaty of this millennium. A majority of countries participating in IGF have also ratified the CRPD which compels governments to implement policies that promote accessibility and encourage usage of the Internet amongst persons with disabilities.

Global surveys have demonstrated that a critical success factor for implementation is the multi-stakeholder participation in policy making.  Based on those findings and the mandates of the CRPD, the International Telecommunication Union (ITU) and the Global Initiative for Inclusive ICTs (G3ict) have just released model policies for ICT accessibility that place strong emphasis and suggest specific processes to developing policies based upon multi-stakeholder engagement.

The joint G3ict/DCAD workshop will be reporting on good practices and global data on multi-stakeholder engagement which demonstrate how such engagement can lead to better planning, implementation and results. The workshop will also discuss how multi-stakeholder engagement can be equally effective at both the international and national level, based upon the experiences of international agencies and standard development organizations such as ITU, G3ict, W3C, WIPO and UNESCO.

Creating an enabling environment for the development of local content

The open Internet enables people from different countries and different cultures, who speak different languages and have different stories to tell, who have different perspectives, understandings and ambitions, to share the content that they create with the global network. Local content development is important and should be encouraged; the social, cultural and economic opportunities available to us are greater if we can search the world’s diversity in creative thought online, as opposed to if we all consume the same content.  

This Best Practice Forum session will focus on how to create an enabling environment for the development of local content. It is the culmination of a two-month online discussion in which a diverse group of stakeholders contributed on-the-ground stories and exchanged views about policies that directly and indirectly encourage the development of local content. The issue is multifaceted and complex, with many different moving parts. To give orientation to the discussion, a three-part framing of the issue emerged, where contributors were asked to share best practices under the following areas:

Internet Infrastructure - The state of the Internet service provision industry, including the presence of Internet Exchange Points (IXPs), data centres, and the status of international and domestic capacity, etc.

Legislative and regulatory landscape - The effect of legislation and policy in the fields of copyright, cultural preservation, telecommunications, etc.

Human capabilities and capacities - The degree of digital literacy in the locale, of web accessibility, and the presence of innovation hubs, etc.

It is considered that the policy initiatives that are designed to encourage local content development will be most successful when they are coordinated across these three areas. 

After several weeks of robust discussion among listserv participants, it became apparent that while there are a number of policies that indirectly contribute to the development of local content — for example a policy requiring all government data to be stored in-country will support the development of local hosting, which in turn will decrease latency and make it easier for people to up and download content — there are not many examples of policies which directly facilitate the development of local content. This session, the success of which will depend on active audience participation, will focus on sharing ideas about these unidentified, and yet-to-be-created, policies. 

The session will be moderated by the two Lead Experts who have led the local content discussion over the past two months, with short presentations provided by a handful of discussion participants. Interactivity with the audience is paramount, and all stakeholders are graciously encouraged to attend.

Dynamic Coalition on Network Neutrality
The network neutrality debate is gaining great political momentum. Several countries have already implemented network neutrality laws, while many others are currently elaborating or scrutinising the opportunity to elaborate network neutrality legislation. Yet, we are witnessing today the emergence of a variety of divergent (and somewhat incompatible) approaches towards whether or not network neutrality is enshrined in law.

Over the last months, in the U.S., the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) announced the elaboration of new Open Internet rules after the D.C. Circuit Court of Appeal invalidated the Open Internet Order; at the European Union level net-neutrality is going to be enshrined into legislation but the outcome of this latter process seem currently difficult to predict; whilst the Brazilian National Congress adopted the Marco Civil an Internet Bill of Rights containing strong network neutrality provisions.

While the network neutrality debate continues, Internet Service Providers (ISPs) may enter into opaque interconnection-arrangements (peering agreements) that might include provision compelling Content and Applications Providers to pay ISPs for a direct connection to their consumers (so called “sender-pays” model).

These and many other issues will be presented by some of the contributors to the annual Report of the meeting of the Dynamic Coalition on Network Neutrality that will engage in an interactive debate during the DC NN meeting.

Meeting Format

The meeting will be introduced by a keynote delivered by Mr Vint Cerf, Vice-president and Chief Internet Evangelist for Google, followed by an interactive debate, prompted by the interventions of the various authors of the 2014 Report of the DC NN.

The authors/panellists will engage in an collaborative discussion aimed at jointly analysing their findings and proposals.

Child Online Protection : Roles and Responsibilities, Best Practices and Challenges (Host Country Session)

In today’s Internet age, online safety is an important issue. With the continuous evolution of technology, society is evolving itself in an unprecedented way, towards the point where everyone and everything is connected all the time. Although there is an increasing trend in the number of people online, there seems to be a gap between children and parents in terms of Internet use and knowledge. As children have specific needs and vulnerabilities with regard to online safety, they should be empowered. Children are spending ever-greater amounts of time working on and playing with computers. Children aged 6 to 11 years have access to the Internet and online technologies with an increasing rate. Awareness is important for parents in protecting their children against inappropriate content and possible damages on cyberspace. Thus, safer use of Internet is vital for families, educators, and all individuals in society.

It is known that, in line with the guidelines of the UN Resolution 44-25 and the Tunis Commitment emphasizing the role of ICTs in the protection of children, many global and national initiatives have been set up in order to promote and protect child online safety and various best practices on the subject have emerged. Awareness rising is an important aspect of these initiatives.

As child online safety has many aspects, a multistakeholder approach, including close cooperation between governmental institutions, network operators, Internet service providers, ICT industry and non-governmental organizations are of significant importance. This session will discuss the role of various stakeholders in child online protection, as well as best practice solutions for making Internet a safer place for children and current challenges faced when implementing such solutions.

Discussions on concrete examples, with an emphasis on the pros and cons for each of them, will be held.

WS196: IGF & Enhanced Cooperation, Parallel Tracks or Connected
The Internet Governance Forum (IGF) and Enhanced Cooperation has been introduced in the Tunis Agenda as two parallel tracks to address public policy issues related to Internet Governance (IG). While the IGF was set to be multilateral, multi-stakeholder, democratic, transparent and non-binding process; Enhanced Cooperation was focused on enabling governments to carry out their roles and responsibilities, in international public policy issues pertaining to the Internet but not in the day-to-day technical and operational matters.

While the IGF role is clearly defined in its mandate, there is no clear framework yet for Enhance Cooperation as a process. Both Processes address in their respective role (or mandate) IG Public Policies. One fact that we know by today is that successful IG Public Policies are the ones that are developed within a multistakeholder open balanced approach which became a trend on global, regional and national levels.

The workshop would address the following questions:

1. Can we view the IGF and Enhanced Cooperation as two linked processes since they both address IG public policies or they should remain and two independent tracks.

2. If the IGF is a non-binding and non-outcome policy dialogue platform, can Enhanced Cooperation serve as an outcome for this policy dialogue that can reflect multilateral, multi-stakeholder, democratic and transparent process.

3. In light of the two previous question, what should be a workable framework for enhanced cooperation that will enable governments to carry its role related to IG public policy.

WS83: Human Rights for the Internet: From Principles to Action [CB]
Human Rights for the Internet: From Principles to Action

A seachange has taken place as national legislatures and intergovernmental organizations now recognize that they have human rights responsibilities online as well as offline, e.g. the UN Human Rights Council resolution (2012), the successful passage into law of the rights-based Marco Civil for the Internet in Brazil (2014), the launching of the New Zealand Greens’ Internet Rights and Freedoms Bill (2014), and the central role given to human rights as part of Internet governance processes in the NETmundial Outcome Document (2014). These developments underscore the achievements of Civil Society Organizations, global networks of engaged academics, grassroots groups, and digital activists, and courageous individuals who have been working to raise awareness about human rights online, and how they impact on Internet governance agendas. This work has been gathering momentum since the IGF began, inspired by earlier precedents. It includes research and campaigns around specific human rights concerns for the online environment, e.g. privacy and freedom of expression, alongside cross-sector collaborations to generate authoritative human rights frameworks for decisions on how we design, access, and use the Internet.

In light of how these aspirations have become actions, the workshop brings together representatives from initiatives that (i) link their work in this area to the IRPC Charter of Human Rights and Principles for the Internet, and (ii) those initiatives that underpin and develop the objectives and content of the IRPC Charter. All participants have contributed to this wider historic recognition of the formative role that international human rights law and norms play in the future of global Internet governance. It is also a workshop that is taking place in the “post-Snowden” context of Internet governance decision-making, which throws up a number of pressing issues around inclusiveness and participation, rule of law, jurisdiction, technical standards, and the ongoing need to educate and raise awareness about rights and fundamental freedoms in the online world. The accent is on bringing to the discussion current examples of how each project represented here has been implementing human rights issues for the Internet, for which constituency and for what purpose. We will address achievements as well as tackle the particular obstacles and opportunities that each initiative encounters. We will share knowledge and brainstorm ways forward. We also consider those sections of the IRPC Charter that need updating or reconsideration in light of the changing context of human rights and Internet governance discussions across stakeholder groups and terrains.

This workshop marks the next step in the “Charter 2.0” project set in motion at the Bali IGF now that the IRPC Charter has proven its worth at the level of national legislatures, grassroots awareness-raising, and global campaigns to call public and private Internet service providers to account in how they ensure human rights online can be protected and enjoyed. It links to two other workshops co-organized by the IRP Coalition that flesh out the details of rights-based Internet governance principles at the individual and process level.

Agenda: The session will be divided into two parts: 1) brief panellist interventions and audience Q&A, 2) Break-out groups led by panellists to brainstorm, and where appropriate take part in some “policy-jamming” on specific points. Remote Participants will also be invited to provide examples and suggestions to the panellists about how they can move their work forward.

Outcomes: All participants will take away with them at least one concrete recommendation or insight from the session for their work. The session itself will also generate 3-6 concrete recommendations for further action that apply to all participants.

Workshop Room 09 (Rumeli -1 Floor / Room 6)

11:00am

Setting the Scene:Topical Insight and Debate Related to the Subthemes of IGF 2014

 Goal: Launch the IGF with a panel that frames each of IGF2014's sub-themes by highlighting related topical issues as well as provide participants with tasters for how these sub-themes will be addressed during the rest of the IGF.

Duration: 1.5 hours with about half of this time dedicated to discussion.

Format: A moderated panel made up of speakers with expertise on the sub-themes complemented by organizers or panelists of other main sessions. Inputs will be kept short. The moderator will be assisted by people with roving mikes in the room.

The session will be opened by panelists giving a 5 minute input on topical and controversial issues relevant to the sub-themes (7x5 = 35 minutes)

Questions from floor and debate among speakers (35 minutes)

The session will also provide an overview of how the subthemes will be covered at IGF2014.

Topics to be covered:

Sub-themes for IGF 2014

a) POLICIES ENABLING ACCESS

Speaker: Rohan Samarajiva, LirneAsia, Sri Lanka

Rohan will provide a bird's eye view on progress and challenges in achieving affordable access for all. He will highlight controversial issues that came up in the last year, such as:

  • net neutrality
  • role of governments and regulators vs role of markets: are we getting the balance right so that the benefits get to those who need it most?
  • access for all: public access, access for the poorest of the poor, access for people with disability

Virat Bhatia will provide a review of how the topic will be discussed at the IGF 2014 at workshops and in the 'access' main session.

b) CONTENT CREATION, DISSEMINATION AND USE

Speaker: Stuart Hamilton, International Federation of Library Associations

Stuart will provide a lead in to some of the IG issues related to content creation and distribution such as copyright, digital rights, business models for local content creation and content in local languages, cross border issues, user generated content etc.He will also provide an overview of how the topic is being covered at IGF 2014.

c) THE INTERNET AS AN ENGINE FOR GROWTH & DEVELOPMENT

Speaker: Jacquelynn Ruff, Vice President – International Public Policy, Verizon

The speaker will highlight achievements, but also the ongoing exclusions. The internet has given rise to new business models, and new businesses, new ways of learning and trading. Are we maximizing potential of the internet as tool for creating a more just, equal, peaceful world? If not why not?

d) IGF & THE FUTURE OF THE INTERNET ECOSYSTEM

Speaker: Benedicto Fonseca Filho, Ministy of Foreign Affairs, Government of Brazil

The speaker will summarize the 'state' and 'status' of mulitstakeholder approaches to IG and reflect on its evolution, maturity, uptake, and legitimacy. The input should cover:

  • why MS? a short look back at the threads that contributed to the evolution of this approach, some of which goes back to internet development and management from its outset, and also the WSIS principles
  • the MS approach in IG at national level: challenges and achievements
  • the evolution of MS in the intergovernmental system: changes and challenges
  • the concept of a distributed, decentralized Internet governance ecosystem: what does it mean, does it make sense?
  • NETmundial as a MS decision-making process
  • challenges, contradictions, conflicts, exclusions what next?
  • what role the IGF should play

Subi Chaturvedi will give a short outline of what will be covered in the focus session that deals with this topic.

e) ENHANCING DIGITAL TRUST and f) INTERNET AND HUMAN RIGHTS

Speakers: Walid Al-Saqaf, Program Director Master of Global Journalism (MAGJ), Ãrebro University, Sweden and Joy Liddicoat, Human Rights Specialist, Association for Progressive Communications

Censorship and blocking of sites becoming common place. So has surveillance. The speakers will reflect on current trends, particularly since the mid-2013 revelations, and the Bali IGF in October 2013. What are the trends? Can the Internet be trusted? Who decides what is in the public interest?  Are measures by States to make the internet more 'safe and secure' achieving their intended results? What are the costs? What are the rights implications? What are the implications for an open and unfragmented internet?

The speakers will clarify what is meant by 'the Internet and human rights' and how this issue has evolved, particularly with regard to the right to privacy and the recent report of the High Commissioner for Human Right's report on the 'The Right to Privacy in the Digital Age'.

Joy Liddicoat will also outline how this topic will be covered at IGF2014.

g) EMERGING ISSUES: Network Neutrality and Best Practice Forums

WS41: Policy to Promote Broadband Access in Developing Countries [CB]
At present, the global broadband industry has entered into a high-speed development stage. The growth of bandwidth requirements and optical fiber access lead to a global fiber optic network construction wave. To provide ubiquitous broadband access for users, countries around the world makes efforts to wireless broadband seamless access through a variety of means, for example, developing the LTE mobile communications technology and market. Broadband development has also led to the emerging of mobile Internet, cloud computing, Internet of things, intelligent terminal that broadband has become an important part of the strategic emerging industries and competition cores.

Broadband is helpful to promote the economic growth, and the effect is more significant for developing countries. In improving productivity, broadband will help boosting a rise of 5% in manufacturing industry, 10% increase in service industry and 20% for the information industry.

However, many developing countries still encounter lots of issues, such as weak infrastructure construction, imbalanced urban and rural development, less developed application service and original technology, pressure on saving cost. It is an urgent task to strengthen infrastructure construction and capacity building, more importantly from the design policy.

The workshop will invite multistakeholder from different angles to discuss:
(1) how developing countries carry out effective broadband network construction,
(2) what's the roles of different stakeholders in this process,
(3) how to strengthen the capacity building,
(4) how to design better policy to promoting broadband access and service,
(5) the best practice and challenges etc.

Internet and Jurisdiction Project Flash Session

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.

WS15: Empowerment displaced people through online education svc.
IGF 2013 showed that the topic of services for migrants and displaced people was not covered except the workshop which representatives of the NRU HSE organized. In 2014 we propose to be more focused on services which help to socialize, assimilate, and propose to discuss particular educational services available for displaced people and migrants.

We would like to discuss the role of migrants and displaced people in the Information society.
Putting connectivity and ICT services within reach of vulnerable populations and especially migrants and displaced people is important to ensure the participation of all in sustainable human and economic development.

The trends in mobile connectivity, called a “mobile miracle” by the ITU, are not just technology enhancements. They are used by governments and different stakeholders to bring services to their citizens, including educational services.

We propose to focus on ICT services and solutions, which can help migrants, and displaced people to better socialize, assimilate and become an integral part of the public local life.
We would like to discuss particular Information society educational services and capacity building programs available or to be developed for displaced people and migrants.
We would like also raising the question of “virtual” universities and MOOCs projects and how these initiatives could assist and help displaced people and migrants to have the access to fare education.

The right to the fare education and access to the information is the Human right, which has to be ensured for everyone, including migrants and displaced people. The Information society Initiatives could help to better ensure the access to education and to information for the fragile groups of society: migrants and displaced people.

WS20: Launch UNESCO publication Digital Safety of journalists
A worrying and widely observed trend is that websites of news media, human rights organizations, critical bloggers, and other individuals or organizations disseminating information have increasingly become targets of illegitimate surveillance, hacking and attacks from various sources ranging from State-based actors to third parties. It falls into an emerging Internet governance concern to explore the digital safety of journalists and its significant human rights implication, particularly on freedom of expression and related privacy protection.

Built on its previous discussion as triggered at IGF 2013, UNESCO takes the occasion to launch the new research which provides a qualitative picture of cases around the world linked to guaranteeing the safety of journalists and other media actors using digital media as well as the guidelines, good practices and policy recommendations on how to respect the right to freedom of expression in the digital environment. The workshop will discuss these outcomes of the publication and how to use them to inform and empower stakeholders on the digital safety protection of journalists and new media actors. It also contributes to Organization’s on-going efforts to implement the UN Inter-Agency Plan on the Safety of Journalists and the Issue of Impunity.

Discussion of how accountability goals are achieved at ICANN under its multi-stakeholder governance processes. To whom is ICANN accountable and what are the mechanisms for ensuring that accountability is adequate? In what way do these mechanisms need strengthening or further improvements, particularly in light of NTIA’s announcement to transition out its current role? How do checks and balances on power, such as structural separation of key DNS operations encourage accountability? How have ICANN’s Affirmation of Commitments and the Accountability and Transparency Review Team fostered (or undermined) accountability goals at ICANN? What lessens were learned from the AoC and ATRT processes on achieving accountability under a multi-stakeholder governance regime?

WS1: Protecting Child Safety AND Child Rights
This a follow up to session 202 from 2013 where we explored the conflict between child protection and child rights. Now it's time to move on to show how both rights and safety can be protected. It is relevant to Internet governance because children are stakeholders who are often left out of discussions.

The UN Convention on the Rights of the Child requires that children "shall have the right to freedom of expression; this right shall include freedom to seek, receive and impart information and ideas of all kinds." Yet, it is generally agreed that some information, such as pornography, can be harmful to some children. But some efforts to protect children may go too far, such as blocking access to social media as is the case in many schools and some entire countries. This workshop will explore how governments, schools, NGOs and companies can find way to protect children from harm while also protecting their civil rights and right of free expression.

WS43: Multi-Stakeholder Approaches to Cybersecurity Awareness
What makes protecting the public from cybersecurity risks such a challenge for governments, private sector and civil society? The governance frameworks and diversity of interest that comprise the Internet infrastructure are complex and no one institution, agency or organization can solve these issues on their own and every digital citizen plays a role in protecting themselves and the Internet. The sheer breadth and depth of these issues can be daunting because of the ever-changing nature of the threats. As a result, no one entity has “the answer.”

The session will discuss the multistakeholder approach to addressing cybersecurity issues: Why should a multistakeholder approach be used and what are the elements of a successful public private governance model. The damage done to the culture of trust that had been developing among governments, private sector and civil society - key players in cyber security and the question becomes - Can multistakeholder efforts continue to succeed in a post Snowden World?

These questions lend themselves to a more interactive session with lots of discussion.

The anticipated participants, NCSA, NorSIS and DSCI will add perspectives of successful programs from both the developing and developed worlds. Microsoft will add the private-sector perspective and government representatives from India and Australia will share their unique insights.

Our goal for this workshop is to have industry, governments and civil society come together in countries where the multistakeholder approach is not present and look at ways to replicate and implement these program. Agenda is as follows:

·Introduction

·Two Brief Scene Setting Presentations

·Short Responses from Discussant

·Audience Q&A/Discussion

WS140: The Future of the Global and Regional IGFs Post 2015
It will focus on ongoing accelerated developments in the global arena of Internet Governance, with special attention to regional aspirations pertaining to the envisaged global Internet Governance model that would take place after 2015, and to the input of the regional IGFs regarding the ongoing consultation processes that will take place during the next year which will shape the future model.
The global IGF, as well as regional IGFs, played a major role in shaping Internet Governance debate, It is time to revisit the very essence of the IGF as a non-decision, non-output, non-binding platform. Revisiting this does not necessarily mean that IGFs need to change radically, but may mean that enhancements may be introduced in the next decade following 2015.
Panelists of experts and policymakers towards will discuss the following :
• Respective Roles of different subgroups of stakeholders in Internet Governance.
• The global IGF/Arab IGF dialectics: what went well and what went wrong?
• Should the global IGF as well as the regional IGFs (including the Arab IGF) continue to work as a non-decision-based platform, without any binding recommendations? Or is it the time to evolve to something else?
• Can the above evolutions take place before the future IG model takes final shape? In parallel? Or afterwards?
• How can the global and regional IGFs sustain their existing/new roles post 2015?

WS152: Internet Governance: Challenges, Issues, and Roles [CB]
The growing complexity and significance of Internet governance necessitates addressing the difficult issues that impact, or are impacted by the continued evolution of the global Internet. Capturing these issues requires that the roles played by intergovernmental, and governmental stakeholders in collaboration with Internet technical professionals, private sector businesses and other non-governmental stakeholders be better understood. Successfully dealing with these all-important Internet governance aspects requires connecting several, sometimes-disparate areas of technology, policy, development and civil society to work on solutions and act in concert to ensure collaborative stewardship of the Internet continues.

Program
Each panel member will provide an opening statement regarding the challenges and issues they see with the changing Internet Governance landscape as well as the roles that everyone, including governments, have in the multistakeholder process.

An open discussion will follow with the Moderator providing questions for the discussion.

Specifically, the panel will be asked to address the following questions during the open and interactive discussion:
• The Internet is expanding exponentially - Who is responsible for identifying the Internet governance knowledge gap among the different stakeholder groups?

• What can be done to bridge the Internet governance knowledge gap in terms of resourcing, scaling, and awareness building?


• How should these knowledge gap issues, and discussion be used to improve the global Internet openness and collaborative multistakeholder engagement?


• Where there are issues that may disrupt the roles of existing stakeholders, how should consensus on key principles or outcomes be reached for solutions that benefit the global Internet rather than special interests?


• How should market-specific challenges or issues that are particular to a local community be approached for the global Internet to continue its innovative contributions?

WS80: ccTLDs: partners in developing local “IG literacy”
The successful evolution of the Internet has been depending on a flexible, decentralised, bottom-up and issue-driven set of interrelated governance processes open to participation by all stakeholders. During the past five years the dialogue on Internet governance has grown exponentially. As one of the Internet industry leader in their respective countries, most of the country code top-level domain operators have been proactively engaging in the Internet governance process. They have become one of the main avenues to reach out their local community on this matter.
The workshop aims to show best practice cases of ccTLDs that have facilitated the development of “IG-literacy” through initiatives that have contributed to feed the IG process with local input on the IG ecosystem and the need that it remains anchored to the principles of multi-stakeholderism, openness, transparency and accountability.
In the spirit and with the ultimate goal of assuring a constructive evolution of the current IG model, various ccTLDs have been playing key roles in the IG arena and helped enhancing the dialogue at multiple levels.
The workshop will be set in the form of a round table where panelists and attendees will be given ample room for discussion. Central in the discussion will be the identification of difficulties and opportunities to engage the local community in an Internet Governance debate.
A dedicated social media campaign will be enforced to ensure the broadest possible participation before, during and after the workshop.

WS188: Transparency Reporting as a Tool for Internet Governance
Transparency reporting by international ICT companies about the legal requests they receive, demanding disclosure of user data or takedowns of content, is quickly becoming common. Less common is transparency reporting by governments, although some countries are beginning to issue rudimentary data about their requests to companies.

The growing prevalence of transparency reports raises important questions about the role of such reporting in the future of Internet governance. What standards are developing around these reports, and how can those standards be internationalized and enforced? How effective are these reports as a governance mechanism for insuring accountability and respect for human rights online by both ICT companies and governments, and how could they be made more effective? How have policy makers and civil society advocates been making use of this new set of data to impact how the Internet is governed, and how could it be used better?

Join us for a panel discussion bringing together academics, advocates and ICT companies to lay out the state of the art in transparency reporting, identify its strengths and shortcomings as a tool for Internet governance, recount the experiences of companies and advocates that have developed or made use of transparency reports to promote human rights and inform Internet governance processes, and propose goals and best practices for the transparency reporting field that we hope to see fulfilled in the future.

Council of Europe Open Forum - Your Internet, Our Aim: Guide Internet Users to Their Human Rights!
Human rights and fundamental freedoms apply equally offline and online. This principle has been clearly stated by the UN Human Rights Council, has been reiterated by the NETmundial Multistakeholder Statement and has been enshrined in the Recommendation on a Guide on Human Rights for Internet Users by Council of Europe Committee of Ministers.

The Council of Europe Guide is based on the European Convention on Human Rights as well as on other Council of Europe instruments defining an enabling environment for the full enjoyment of human rights. Nonetheless, the utilisation of the Guide should not be limited to the European continent but rather used to foster human rights’ protection and promotion at the global level. 

“This guide is a tool for you, the Internet user, to learn about your human rights online, their possible limitations, and available remedies for such limitations.”

The Guide targets the entire stakeholder spectrum and this Open Forum aims to ignite discussion with regard to the role and future implementation of the Guide. You will have the possibility to join the discussion and take an active role in shaping the future of Human Rights protection online.

WS208: Net Neutrality, Zero-Rating & Development: What’s the Data?
We propose a roundtable to explore the arguments for and against “zero-rating,” which refers to the practice of offering free access to certain popular online services for customers of particular mobile networks. Several major service providers have entered into arrangements with mobile network operators in a variety of countries to deliver low-data-usage, “zero-rated” versions of their services. In some cases, this means using those sites does not count against a subscriber’s data caps, while in other arrangements, users can access the service even if they do not have a data plan.

One of the main arguments in favor of zero-rating is that it brings down the cost of access to information in less developed countries. A user of Wikipedia Zero, for example, has unlimited, no-cost access everything in the online encyclopedia. Further, providing free access to popular content and services is preferable from an access-to-information perspective than no access at all, and such free access may drive demand for general-purpose mobile Internet access that can help encourage and fund investment in infrastructure.

But zero-rating can also be viewed as requiring discrimination among online content and service providers and may create skewed incentives for subscribers to access the “free” services of identified partners instead of competing services. To some advocates, such preferential treatment challenges fundamental principles of net neutrality, and may present particular development concerns by giving dominant web services an advantage over nascent local competition. Further, the hypothesis that zero-rating will lead to widespread access to a free, open, and neutral Internet is unproven.

We will use this roundtable to analyze and assess the arguments for and against the availability of zero-rated services and to engage in a focused examination of available research and gaps to be filled in this important area for development.

Main/Focus Session: Policies enabling Access, Growth and Development on the Internet

Description

The main session combines two key themes: “Access” and “Internet as an Engine for Growth and Development”.

FORMAT

This main session will be held as a large, multistakeholder, interactive roundtable between panelists and participants.   The session has 2 seasoned moderators, 1 remote moderator and 2-3 volunteers, with mikes, amongst participants. Post introductions by moderators, brief opening statements (2-3 minutes) will be invited from select panelists, linked to specific questions of policy. This cycle will be repeated through the session. Not every panelist will need to comment on each question. Moderators will frequent between panelists and participants for comments / questions. Feeder sessions invited to provide 1 minute interventions. Substantive Rapporteurs will record session highlights as inputs to feeder sessions and produce a more detailed report post IGF.

Agenda

The objective will be to strengthen IGF’s “knowledge agenda” by bring forth diverse experiences especially from developing countries on policies that have worked to deliver access, learnings and how internet connectivity drives growth and development in developing countries especially for women, youth and the marginalized sections.

The session has a special focus on developing countries and women participants. Apart from ITU and UNESCO, panelists will share perspectives from Turkey (Chair), Nigeria, Egypt, South Africa (Africa), Qatar, Lebanon (Middle East),  Argentina, Brazil  (Latin America), China, India, Sri Lanka (Asia), Pacific Islands, United States and Europe. The moderators and the youth volunteers represent Fiji, Kenya and UK. Of the 21 (TBC) invited (20 confirmed) panelists, 14 belong to developing countries and 2 to international organisations. 8 panelists are women.  

ACCESS

There existed 1 billion internet users when the Tunis Agenda was conceived in 2005. In the next 9 years, at the time of UN IGF in Istanbul, according to a 2014 ITU report, (http://www.itu.int/en/ITU-D/Statistics/Pages/facts/default.aspx ), there are approx. 7 billion mobile subscriptions and approx. 3 billion internet users. Of these 3 billion, 2.3 billion are mobile broadband subscriptions – half of which are in developing countries.

Home internet access is near saturation in developed countries, but only 31% in developing countries. By 2014 end, 44% of the world’s households will have internet access. In contrast, in Africa, only 1 out of 10 households is connected to internet. Against Europe’s internet penetration of 75% and Americas at (66%), Asia Pacific is at 33%, and Africa (20%) – up from 10% in 2010. By 2030, 3.1 billion new internet users will come from Asia, Africa (1.3 bn), Americas (0.5 bn) and Europe (0.1 bn).

Public Internet access, infrastructure sharing and access as a human right for the socially disadvantaged, vulnerable sections and persons with disabilities are critical access issues – that need global attention.

INTERNET FOR GROWTH AND DEVELOPMENT

Several studies have established that internet contributes an average of 1.9 % to GDP - amongst developing countries. By comparison, in developed countries, it contributes 3.4 % of the GDP (http://www.mckinsey.com/client_service/high_tech/latest_thinking/impact_of_the_internet_on_aspiring_countries). Citizens are often the first to benefit in the developing countries especially through services such as email, social networks, search engines, access to information, education, health services, entertainment and important government content. Adoption of internet by the younger population drives online services. Women and SMEs are 2 of the beneficiaries of an increase in internet penetration.

The panel will discuss both access and developmental issues with a special focus on “enabling policies”.

List of Potential Public Policy questions (to be reduced to 5 - 6)

(i)              What are the national regulatory best practices driving internet access – relevant to the 4 billion unconnected citizens of the world? Will, what got us here, get us there?

(ii)            Can inter-governmental and multilateral agencies, developed country governments through bi-laterals, and private entities, help hasten internet access, linking it to development in emerging economies? Or is access almost entirely a national public policy challenge for developing countries?

(iii)           Are countries with high internet penetration and lower cost of access, approaching the challenge in terms of regulatory intervention, legislation, investment environment, technology options and multistakeholder participation in decision making, differently? How are countries with small populations spread over great distances responding to the challenge?     

(iv)           Are norms linking internet penetration to GDP growth, per capita income, poverty eradication, education, rate of employment, etc., universally acceptable? Can internet linked economic and social development norms work as peer pressure amongst emerging economies?

(v)             Most developing country governments have announced national broadband plans. Who is funding National Broadband Plans?  What is the state of their implementation and will they need revision during the next 2-3 years on account of emerging technologies? Can lack of local content becoming a barrier to meaningful access and use of internet? 

(vi)           How important are public access policies in ensuring wide-spread access to the unconnected, especially as it relates to responsibilities of actors regarding human rights and disadvantaged groups in information society? How to ensure a continued focus on areas that need special attention?

(vii)          What role can the IGF play to become a catalyst, to enhance its knowledge agenda through  global dialogue amongst multistakeholder groups   to record learnings, improve information sharing, and strengthen best practices in access / development? Suggest specific steps as inputs for the MAG 2015.

WS193: The Press Freedom Dimensions of Internet Governance
Revelations about surveillance and mass data collection over the past year have underscored the fact that the practice of journalism, and the circulation of information more broadly, is inseparable from key dimensions of Internet governance, from the infrastructure backbone to transmission dynamics to encryption. The past year’s headlines have made it clear that both policy changes and technological efforts are necessary to address the protection of communication and information exchange amid aggressive government surveillance and private sector complicity and ensure that all actors respect the rule of law, privacy and free expression.
As “canaries in the data mine,” journalists represent one of the most vulnerable — and engaged — groups of Internet users. What happens to journalists and journalism will likely foreshadow other, broader developments. Yet to what extent do different stakeholder groups understand the critical importance that their input to Internet governance plays in sustaining an environment in which press freedom and freedom of expression more broadly is possible?

The non-governmental organization Committee to Protect Journalists proposes a roundtable workshop to explore various stakeholders’ role in resisting mass surveillance, particularly of journalists and media, and how Internet governance choices may impact on press freedom. The interactive roundtable will seek to produce an initial list of ideas about the roles of technology companies, government, academia, journalists and news organizations in protecting source confidentiality and otherwise ensuring the free flow of information from the press to the global public.

The roundtable will help inform internal policy choices at companies, in government, in newsrooms and in the field, and will seek to foster a discussion that is relevant to all at-risk Internet users.

Agenda:
Introduction to the roundtable and the questions at hand (Dr. Radsch, 5 minutes)
5 minute overview of UNESCO's conceptualization of the press freedom dimensions of Internet governance (Dr. Berger)
2 minute comments from participants on what they think are the two most important or consequential press freedom dimensions of Internet governance:
Ms. Ben Hassine
Mr. Less
Dr. Lemos
Ms. Geybulla

Input from remote participants

Synthesize commonalities, identify tensions

Open to audience (including remote participants) for additional dimensions and Q&A

Answer questions and discuss the additional suggestions with a view towards identifying the most important/consequential press freedom dimensions of Internet governance

WS18: The Business of Creativity: User Generated Content and IP
The session aims at identifying new trends in the production, distribution and sharing of creative content in the digital environment. We are in the middle of a great migration of content from analogue to digital. There is a change in roles of the different players along the value chain and an accompanying shift in how each of these players will be compensated for their work.
The online environment is providing access to an unprecedented, and, in some instances, overwhelming quantity of information and content. In the analogue environment, media, news, education, music, and gaming products are primarily created and distributed by the content industry. The Internet however is awash with a huge number of accessible creations generated by individuals. User-generated content (UGC) is experiencing a steady growth in terms of social and economic importance. The session will look at the main economic, legal and social challenges linked to emerging platforms and innovative business models flourishing on the web. In particular panelists will contribute to the ongoing debate around the intertwined relations between industry-generated content and UGC. Understanding their roles in sectors such as media, education or social networks will be crucial to approach challenges linked to IP regulation, both law and policy. Increasingly, media industry proactively engages with consumers and approaches UGC as an asset rather than an alternative to their business. Values of Paragraph 72 of the Tunis Agenda, such as “Facilitate the exchange of Information and best practices...” and “Identify emerging issues, bring them to the attention of the relevant bodies and the general public...” will serve as a framework for the discussion.

WS185: ICANN Globalization and the Affirmation of Commitments
In 2009, ICANN entered into an Affirmation of Commitments (AOC) with the US Department of Commerce (DOC). The AOC promotes ICANN’s accountability to the global Internet community, e.g. through a system of multistakeholder reviews of its performance in relation to public interest criteria. But it also moderated rather than ended the exclusive relationship between ICANN and the DOC, and affirmed ICANN’s commitment to remain a nonprofit corporation headquartered in the US with offices around the world. Now, with ICANN’s accelerating globalization efforts and the DOC’s announced desire to transition its role regarding the IANA functions to the global multistakeholder community, new and pressing questions are being raised about the AOC and its potential alternatives.

The NonCommercial Users Constituency of ICANN (94 civil society organizations and 252 individuals in 81 countries) proposes this workshop to explore some of these questions. Should the bilateral relationship be replaced by a “Web of Affirmation of Commitments” between ICANN and the world’s governments and relevant nongovernmental actors, as advocated by an ICANN Strategy Panel? Could the US role simply be removed from the equation, rather than being replaced by formal agreements with other parties? Would another arrangement better promote globalization and multistakeholderism while preserving the security, stability and unity of the Internet? How far can ICANN’s globalization be advanced while preserving ICANN’s legal status and nexus of contractual relationships? Could the innovative AOC serve as a model for other global Internet governance issue-areas? The workshop would bring together architects of the AOC with other leading proponents of ICANN’s globalization.

WS107: Internet blocking: When well intentioned measures go too far
The economic and public policy impacts of Internet blocking by state actors has been well studied. Receiving less study to date are the economic and public policy impacts of Internet policing by third party non-state actors. The systemic impossibility of a common definition of “due process” or a common policy framework has led to occasional collateral damage that undermines the security and stability of the Internet. This is a form of “digital culture clash”

This workshop will explore the state of play in third party Internet blockades and boycotts by non-state actors such as Internet reputation systems, whether commercially motivated or not. Examples of collateral damage will be drawn from the record, including the impact of SPAMHAUS’s blockade of Sweden in early 2014. We will engage leading experts from both the technology and policy arenas to debate and discuss questions like “at what limit does a blockade or boycott do more harm than good to the organizer’s own values, due to foreseeable collateral damage, lack of care, or lack of investigatory resources?”

The panel hopes to reach a common understanding and brief set of recommendations for those who might organize Internet blockades and boycotts, for those who might participate in such events – perhaps by subscribing to an Internet reputation system, for those who might be targeted by such moves, and also for policy makers and shapers who need to know the powers and risks of collective third party action in Cyberspace.

WS17: Privacy as Innovation II
Privacy is in this workshop viewed as an area of opportunity and innovation. The success of new innovative services and applications that provide users with control over personal data and social contexts and mounting trends in user strategies to navigate safely and anonymously online, all suggest that a paradigm shift is on its way. This shift entails a shift in focus where protection of privacy rather than being described solely as an area of governance, or as an obstacle to innovation and sharing, can be viewed as the foundation for the evolution of digital media business models that more critically understand digital media as an evolving architecture of human social relations, and privacy as a new basic market demand and an area worth investing in for businesses and society at large.

Privacy as innovation II: The practical principles and implementation

The first “Privacy as Innovation” workshop was held at IGF in Bali 2013 with a general discussion of the discourses concerning privacy and innovation. The follow up workshop “Privacy as Innovation II” will constitute a discussion of the challenges as well as the opportunities of the privacy innovations today and will include innovative ideas from the tech community, civil society, policymakers and youth. It will critically assess the solutions available today and also evaluate present day alternatives. The core aim is to discuss key practical principles for innovations in privacy technologies looking at privacy technologies as an economic and social investment.

The youth perspective:

Youth’s heavy media user demand represents the emerging demand for development and innovation in policy and technical tools that guarantee a contemporary, evolving, fluid and personalized definition of privacy. Their interests and demands provide an insight in the future demands of the market and a fundamental indication of the forthcoming essential drivers for innovation. The youth perspective will thus present a core contribution to the discussions of this workshop.


Agenda:

1.Short introduction to debate by moderator: “Privacy as innovation”

2.Moderated round table discussion

3. Questions from and discussion with remote and onsite participants

WS139: Evaluating MS Mechanisms to Address Governance Issues
The evolution of Internet governance principles frameworks and accountability mechanisms has been the focus of considerable discussion in 2014. This process must proceed through careful analysis. Some governments highlighted concern about Internet-related policy issues for which they cannot identify relevant existing mechanisms. However, before concluding that new mechanisms should be created to address these issues, alternative options must be sought to ensure that changes would contribute to enhancing the security, stability, privacy, resiliency and interoperability of the Internet, and to economical and societal benefits.

This workshop will examine how governance/operational problems can be addressed in a manner that continues to safeguard the security and stability of the Internet. It will use a four-step process ICC-BASIS submitted to NETmundial.
1. A potential issue should be identified to the global stakeholder community, indicating the implications to governance and to determine whether the issue has already been addressed in an existing mechanism.
2. Upon assessment, proposed solutions should be described to the global stakeholder community.
3. Proposed solutions should be analysed to determine whether it would violate the principle of "first, do no harm" to the functionality, stability and interoperability of the global Internet.
4. Finally, solutions should be evaluated to determine potential effectiveness for addressing the issues and their potential for unintended consequences.

This workshop also will examine the WGEC mapping analysis and consider how to utilize the WGEC's work to enable a stakeholder to identify existing mechanisms - developed through private sector, (inter)-governmental organizations - to address governance issues.

WS31: Internet Governance: a case for variable geometry? [CB]
The multi‐stakeholder model has been an important factor for the success of the Internet. However it is necessary to recognize that the Internet governance dynamics have changed. The new dynamics among stakeholders is associated with an overall increase of complexity and differentiation and suggests that it is increasingly difficult for one single governance regime to address the broad range of concerns associated with today’s Internet. What is needed is to allow for a better match between discrete governance issues and the suitable institutions available.
The panel addresses this situation by advancing an innovative model. It asks whether it is feasible to consider an evolution of the current system to allow for a better interplay among the different actors of the governance process towards a multi‐stakeholder model with variable geometry.

While all stakeholders need to participate in the multi-stakeholder model on equal footing when different governance issues and institutions are envisaged and discussed, then in the implementation of the governance process one stakeholder or a coalition of stakeholders (variable geometry) could take the lead according to the nature of the governance issue at stake: e.g. standards (the private sector), Internet issues relevant to particular communities (civil society), human rights (government).
The variable geometry approach has been discussed in the WTO negotiations to take into account differences among countries participating in the agreement (for instance developing countries) and to reduce the perennial tension between depth and width of the treaties.
The workshop will explore what can be learnt from these experiences for the Internet governance context.

WS95: Working together: initiatives to map & frame IG
To map, frame and make accessible the often-confusing tangle of processes underway across the vast number of Internet governance-related issues, an increasing number of initiatives have emerged or are being proposed, including:

• CSTD WGEC Correspondence Group mapping activity;
• GIPO;
• Geneva Internet Platform;
• Internet Policy Observatory; and
• Internet Collaborative Stewardship Framework (ISOC).

With the advent of so many initiatives, some of the possible issues and risks that may emerge include:

• Lack of coordination between initiatives;
• Unnecessary duplication of activities;
• Overlooking good initiatives in “competing” forums; and
• Adding to general IG stakeholder confusion;

This roundtable will bring representatives of initiatives together to explore similarities and synergies and ways to improve communication and coordination, with the ultimate goals of:

• Strengthening support and partnerships between initiatives to avoid a sense of “competition”;
• Enabling initiatives to gain access to stakeholders, information and processes that by themselves, they would not have direct access or knowledge of;
• Sharing best practices between initiatives, such as data conceptualization and visualization;
• Contributing to a more inclusive and collaborative mapping of issues, mechanisms, and gaps in Internet governance;
• Encouraging greater IG stakeholder buy-in for all initiatives; and
• Breaking down barriers, generally, between IG stakeholders.

The roundtable will also encourage representatives from regions or stakeholder groups that don’t have such initiatives to join the roundtable, with a view to helping such representatives ascertain whether or not initiatives are needed for their own regions and stakeholder groups.

WS154: Intelligent Risk management in a mobile online environment
How can adults in charge of minors fulfil their duty of parenting while at the same time respecting the rights of the child?

Joint proposal by Zentrum für Kinderschutz im Internet - I-KiZ and klicksafe - EU-Initiative in the Safer Internet Programme together with Google Deutschland

Children and youths are accessing the Internet increasingly via mobile devices. A reliably available broadband infrastructure anywhere and high usability of devices like Tablet PCs and Smart Phones are the enablers of the fast growing mobile Internet usage among children and youths. This development raises new questions and challenges for parenting. Parents and other adults in charge of minors are asking for technical support to protect their children form unwanted encounters with harmful content and potentially risky contact with strangers. But at the same time children and youths themselves are holding fundamental human rights like privacy and freedom of speech that must be respected. With parental control as it is provided by technical tools often a high degree of monitoring of children's usage habits comes along that should be seen as intrusion into privacy and is therefore intolerable. Intelligent risk management in a mobile online environment should comprise both: protection of children and empowerment of youths by appropriate educational approaches and adequate technical means.
In this session light shall be cast on the current educational situation in families, media literacy of the parents and available technical tools for parental control but also new strategies like Safety by Design and the legal framework of children’s rights and parents duties shall be discussed.

WS172: Network Neutrality: a Roadmap for Infrastructure Enhancement
Network neutrality (NN) is the principle according to which Internet traffic shall be treated equally, without discrimination, restriction or interference regardless of its sender, recipient, type or content, so that Internet users’ freedom of choice is not restricted by favouring or disfavouring the transmission of Internet traffic associated with particular content, services, applications, or devices.

To date, several countries have implemented NN laws, while many others are scrutinising the opportunity to elaborate such legislation. Meanwhile, growing attention is paid to the question of how to finance network expansion. Certain content and applications providers have been experimenting new typology of peering agreements that require them to pay ISPs for a direct connection to their consumers (aka “sender-pays” model). While some might argue that similar arrangements are necessary to support ISPs in enhancing their network infrastructure, the obvious counter-argument is that end-users are already paying for infrastructure maintenance (and enhancement) through their broadband subscription. Furthermore, in the lack of an industrial policy aimed at steering ISPs investments towards network enhancement, it seems difficult to assess whether ISPs will, indeed, invest their revenues in the enhancement of network infrastructure.

This workshop will interrogate such questions as:
(i) how does NN relates to network enhancement?
(ii) is the market alone able to provide appropriate answers to guetentee network enhancement in accordance with the NN principle ?
(iii) how can governmental policies promote private investments in network enhancement without impinging upon the NN principle?
(iv) is there room or need for State-subsidized network infrastructures?

Greater engagement with broadband and the Information Society will in turn improve the geographic and multilingual diversity of voices as a whole and the ability of all communities to participate in Internet governance.

This capacity building session will highlight some programs training the content creators of tomorrow and provide valuable lessons learned from content creators from around the globe to the benefit of a wide variety of IGF stakeholders. The session will provide a chance to learn what policies and strategies promote creative industries and contribute to the health of the Internet governance ecosystem as well as learn from the practical experience of practitioners in the field.

Side Meeting by the Council of Europe: A human rights perspective on ICANN’s policies and procedures

The complex territory of human rights and Internet governance is broadly understood and accepted. However it remains largely unexplored and necessitates further elaboration. It is for this reason that the Council of Europe facilitated the preparation of a report by Dr Monika Zalnieriute and Thomas Schneider on ICANN’s procedures and policies in the light of human rights, fundamental freedoms and democratic values. The report was presented and discussed during the ICANN50 meeting, held in London on 22 to 26 June 2014. 

This Side Meeting is organised to facilitate an open expression of views, exchange of ideas and exploration of options among the participants to further the debate on ICANN’s accountability and human rights. All relevant stakeholders, such as governments, ICANN staff, civil society, private sector, and other internet community actors are invited to add to the discussion. After Dr Zalnieriute and Mr Schneider have presented their findings there will be a 90 minutes interactive roundtable discussion, guided by the following questions:  

1. To what extent is ICANN’s Applicant Guidebook in compliance with the right to freedom of expression and freedom of association?

2. To what extent are ICANN’s policies and procedures discriminatory? 

3. To what extent are ICANN’s policies and procedures in compliance with the right to privacy and personal data protection? 

4. Should ICANN and governments in the GAC be responsible and accountable for the protection of human rights online? 

5. What is needed to improve accountability for human rights protection within ICANN and the GAC? 

We welcome everyone to join us in this very important and timely debate. The report can be found here: http://www.coe.int/t/informationsociety/icann-and-human-rights.asp

WS66: Content4D: Diversifying the global content and apps market
The development of local content and applications are key drivers to spur the development of the Internet economy. However, a closer look at content and apps production reveals that the majority of content is produced by a few leading economies. A very moderate level of content is produced IN emerging and developing economies FOR these economies. In addition, apart from some few successful applications and content platforms, the local content and applications market has not scaled up in emerging countries and is currently fragmented.

Existing studies in Asia and Latin America have shown that a barrier to a higher adoption of the Internet and Internet services and applications, especially among low-income groups, is often that these income groups do not perceive the need of an Internet connection because no appropriate content is available for them that would add value to their businesses or lives.

If we managed to develop and promote policies that would significantly enhance content production and distribution in emerging and developing countries at a large scale, we would not only foster economic growth and social development in these countries, but also diversify the Internet economy and make it truly global.

This workshop intends to identify innovative policies and programmes that truly foster the development of content and applications in emerging and developing economies and that promote a local content ecosystem in these countries. Entrepreneurs producing local content in emerging economies will connect remotely from different continents to integrate their views on needs of developers in these economies.

Agenda:

1.Opening remarks on the production and distribution of local content and applications by moderator Andrew Wyckoff

2.Interventions by
a.Minister Diego Molano Vega – Local content and apps development in Colombia
b.Helani Galpaya – LIRNEasia research on developping an app ecosystem in India and Sri Lanka

3.Invitation to entrepreneurs from emerging countries to report remotely about their experience

4.Interventions by
a.Patricia Senghor – Fostering content development in Africa through the FIRE program
b.Konstantinos Komaitis – ISOC’s work and partnerships for local content

5.Discussion

WS71: Privacy, Surveillance, and the Cloud: One Year Later
In previous years our workshops have looked at data flows, surveillance, and freedom of expression. As the world embraces the cloud business model, we look at the cloud world 18 months after revelations alleging mass-government surveillance. We propose looking at how policy makers, regulator, cloud businesses, and users have responded to potential government access to user data in the cloud. What has been the resulting policy? What has the business world done to address concerns? What has worked and what hasn’t? Has there been an impact? We’ll address how these measures have affected cloud adoption, and explore potential solutions for addressing multi-stakeholder concerns in the post-revelation era.

Regulation and Mitigation of Unwanted Communications (e.g. spam)

Spam continues to be a significant problem for Internet users, creating a burden for developing countries, networks, operators and all end users. High volumes of unsolicited email can cause significant impacts to regions with limited Internet access as well as raise concerns for all regions with the increasing malware infections that come from unwanted email.  Unsolicited email may be magnified in developing countries, where high volumes of incoming and outgoing spam can cause a severe drain on the limited and costly bandwidth that is available in those regions.

Cooperation and partnerships among all stakeholders is needed to develop strategies and approaches to mitigating spam.  For that reason, addressing the problem of spam requires a multistakeholder discussion and a framework of suggested approaches, including the need to engage governments in the discussion of how to reduce the threat and impact of spam globally.

This discussion with a panel of experts will focus on the “Regulation and mitigation of unwanted communications (e.g. "spam") draft outcome document and will include examples of best practices they use to address the proliferation of spam in their regions/country’s that might be useful to include in the draft as possible recommendations.

 Output expected from the session would be review and consensus regarding the draft outcomes document, feedback on the text and indication of support for the for the recommendations and next steps that the report outlines.

WS11: Languages on the move: Deploying multilingualism in the net [CB]
Sustainability and development of the Internet can only be ensured if the net becomes a truly multilingual platform which can support everyone’s right to freedom of opinion and expression online.
The workshop aims to continue the study and investigation of how Internet can become more multilingual through the full deployment of Internationalised Domain Names (IDNs). The yearly EURid-UNESCO World Report on IDNs in cooperation with Verisign includes new chapters about the human perception of the language in its different scripts and the introduction of the first IDN generic top-level domains. It also features an extended section on the universal acceptance of IDNs from the technical perspective. Geographical distribution and gender balance of the speakers will be one of the workshop guarantees as well as the time left for discussion with the participants.
The workshop will be organised as a round table with key speakers who have been working hard at multiple levels to ensure that Internet becomes more and more multilingual. At the time of finalising the list of the speakers, the organisers have contacted multilingual content creators to expand the discussion to the Internet multilingual content aspect.
It will be also moderated at social media level with a dedicated social media moderator.
The EURid-UNESCO World Report on IDN deployment is a yearly study that is going to be continued in the future in closer cooperation with the ccTLD regional organisations Secretariats as well as with the representatives of industry leaders who can contribute to make the Internet a truly multilingual environment. At the same time, the workshop will consider to produce a bullet point chart to be distributed at all levels to illustrate the actions that should be enforced for the aforementioned objective.

Dynamic Coalition on Child Online Safety: 'Disrupting and reducing the availability of child sex abuse materials on the Internet - How can technology help?'
Today, there seems to be more child abuse materials being circulated online than ever before. Whatever we have been doing up to now to get these images (stills, videos and live streaming) off the Internet has not been working well enough. Emerging forms of abuse involve one-time live streaming transmission of sexual abuse of children. Peer2Peer environments have superseded the web and other online environments as the major source of child abuse materials and the emergence of anonymous or hard to trace forms of electronic payment such as virtual currencies, appear to be online a new growth in commercial traffic in child abuse material.
Although there is clearly an important agenda which seeks to address the underlying causes of the child abuse depicted in all kinds of images, as well as a need to improve the speed with which law enforcement can identify victims in real life, rescue them, then pass them on to appropriate care or help agencies to aid their recovery, another key part of the challenge involves seeking to disrupt and reduce the traffic in child abuse images to the largest extent possible.
Given the volumes involved it is self-evident that technical solutions will play an increasingly important part in this struggle. Microsoft has produced PhotoDNA to deal with still images. Google is working on a similar product for videos. Other companies are working on or have developed similar or complementary measures. Google and Microsoft have both taken steps to reduce the potential for their search engines to be abused by those with sexual interests in children. "Splash pages" are now being deployed to discourage certain types of users from using search engines to locate child abuse materials.
This meeting of the Dynamic Coalition will look critically at the array of technical tools now being used in the fight against online child abuse material. How well are the tools working and, crucially, how widely are they being deployed? What more can be done to encourage wider take up? Is the Financial Services industry doing enough to interdict the abuse of their systems in relation to commercial exchanges?
We will organize a round table followed by an open discussion with the audience/members.

WS180: Crowdsourced Ideas for IG:NETmundial Brazilian experience [CB]
The proposal of training workshop relates to demonstrate and empower participants in the platform used by civil society in the last NETMundial, which occurred in April 2014 in Brazil. Initially, a public consultation raised hundreds of ideas and more than a hundred thousand votes on Internet Governance through the methodology of AllOurIdeas, by voting in pairs (allourideas.org). Fifteen proposals that served as a guide to the HUB São Paulo, which also used a separate platform of systematization were elected. People were able to attend using social networks and a collective interface and transparent preparation of public input, which guided the intervention on the floor of the HUB at NETMundial. This material was also used as input to a letter delivered to the demands of Internet Forum in Brazil. Our goal is to demonstrate in practice these platforms and make it available for other events of governance. All the code is published and tools are licensed under GPL v.3.

WS118: Discussion on multistakeholderism in Africa
The proposed workshop has the format of a roundtable during which participants from different stakeholder groups will discuss the results of RIA research conducted, some of which has been undertaken with NEPAD Agency, on mapping multistakeholders participation in Internet governance from an African perspective..
Specifically, participants will be invited to consider how factors such as low level of Internet access and use, low quality of service and high prices of broadband intersect with the notion of multistakeholder participation as a form of deliberative democracy for Internet governance - which is often informed by assumptions from more mature markets and the human rights frameworks of Western democracies.
Participants will explore the evolution of multistakeholders participation through consideration of the main international, regional and national processes/mechanisms of the Internet governance ecosystem from an Africa perspective.
Some specific issues that will be highlighted include:
- What these initiatives have achieved in terms of enabling or constraining the development of an open Internet;
- what has been the level and effectiveness of participation of African stakeholders in these processes;
- why have they not been able to fully develop an African agenda on Internet governance

WS191: ICANN Globalization in an Evolving IG Ecosystem
ICANN is a multi-stakeholder organization that has a critical yet confined role as a steward of the Internet identifiers and protocol parameters. ICANN coordinates closely with other actors in the Internet ecosystem who play a key role in managing the technical resources of the Internet infrastructure. ICANN also has relationships with many different stakeholders who participate in various Internet governance processes at regional and international levels.
ICANN continuously seeks to improve its multi-stakeholder structures and policy development processes to be more effective, inclusive, and transparent. It does that through ongoing reviews undertaken by community members representing all stakeholder groups. The Affirmation of Commitments Reviews and the implementation of recommendations of the Accountability and Transparency Review Teams (ATRT1) and (ATRT2) are example of such community reviews.
ICANN also contributes to several initiatives and efforts aiming to evolve the global multi-stakeholder Internet governance cooperation, and to strengthen ICANN’s multi-stakeholder model. The ICANN Strategy Panels, the Montevideo Statement by leaders of Internet organizations, and the High-Level Panel on the Future of Global Internet Cooperation, are all efforts toward this objective.

This workshop is targeted toward those with an interest in the evolution of the Internet governance ecosystem, and will address a range of issues in this area including:
• ICANN accountability and transparency mechanisms;
• Globalization of ICANN and IANA functions, including the NTIA transition dialogue;
• Enhancing global multi-stakeholder Internet governance cooperation, including reflections on Netmundial;
• Roadmap toward collaborative and inclusive Internet Governance, including the output of the High-Level Panel.


Detailed Agenda:

Introduction by moderator (2 min);

Panelists to react to following questions (10 min per question):

(1)How do you see progress made with regard to the process towards completing the transition of NTIA’s stewardship of the IANA functions?

(2) How can ICANN’s accountability and transparency mechanisms continue to evolve to support globalization of the organization?

(3)What are the key outcomes of Netmundial, and how can the global Internet community benefit from its success?

(4)What are the key recommendations of the High-Level Panel’s report, and what are the next steps?

WS195: The Internet age: Adapting to a new copyright agenda
Copyright law has been struggling to adapt to the dynamic impact of Internet and digital technologies for some time. Originally a mechanism put in place to promote creation by ensuring fair rewards for creators, copyright laws have become, in important respects, a barrier to a strong digital economy and an impediment to promote access to knowledge and innovation. In this changing context, new beneficiaries of copyright protection, and new ways of framing copyright policy, have emerged.
This workshop considers the evolution of copyright policy and reform over the past half century, with the emergence of the Internet intensifying copyright debates and advocacy agendas. On the one hand, creators and distributors have, to a certain extent, benefited from stronger protections for their works online. On the other hand, users and consumers have more legitimacy in asking for improved access to information and culture online.
There is a greater diversity of stakeholders invested in copyright law and policy than ever before, with their own perspectives on the ultimate goals of copyright reform. In this environment, do our traditional understandings of the scope and purpose of copyright still stand?
Panelists will consider the evolution of copyright law over the past half century, and query whether our understandings of copyright law should be redefined for the World Wide Web and a sustainable Internet (Article 72, Tunis Agenda). If the answer is yes, this discussion will work towards identifying a redefined purpose of copyright, and key principles for a fully web-integrated copyright framework.

Workshop Agenda:
1. 5 min theme introduction and presentation of the main issues (Ellen Broad - IFLA)
2. 10 min for each speaker to answer the proposed questions
3. 25 for public debate

Workshop Room 04 (Rumeli -1 Floor / Room 2)

2:30pm

Main/Focus Session: Network Neutrality:Towards a Common Understanding of a Complex Issue

 1.1.        Description/Agenda/Questions

The debate on network neutrality has flared up in recent months. Net neutrality was one of the most controversial issues at the NETmundial Conference, held in Sao Paulo in April 2014. At NETmundial there were “diverging views  as to whether or not to include the specific term as a principle in the outcomes”  . However, NETmundial participants agreed on the need to continue the discussion regarding network neutrality and recommended this discussion “be addressed at forums such as the IGF”.

NETmundial was a landmark event of Internet Governance in 2014 and its decision to identify the IGF as an appropriate forum to further discuss an Internet Governance policy issue such as net neutrality, was a significant outcome to affirm the important role of the IGF.

The NETmundial outcome document – the NETmundial Multistakeholder Statement -  has set up a useful framework for further discussions of net neutrality:

"Net neutrality:  [...] It is important that we continue the discussion of the Open Internet including  how  to  enable  freedom  of expression, competition, consumer choice, meaningful transparency and appropriate network management and recommend that this be addressed at forums such as the next IGF."

The session will take the NETmundial wording as the basis for its discussion. Main objective of the session is to explore the various facets of the network neutrality debate and foster a common understanding of these issues. It will look at a set of agreed policy questions from five different perspectives:

1. Technical perspectives

2. Economic perspectives

3. End-user perspectives

4. Regulatory and legislative perspectives

5. A developmental perspective.

It will also look at previous workshops held in the IGF context as well as other international developments which have contributed to the debate:

• The US Federal Communications Commission (FCC) is currently elaborating rules about the future of the "Open Internet";

• The European Parliament adopted its First Reading of a new Regulation on the Single Telecoms Market enshrining new net neutrality provisions;

• The Council of Europe is working on a draft recommendation by the Committee of Ministers to its 47 member states on protecting and promoting the right to freedom of expression and the right to private life with regard to network neutrality.

• Brazil officially adopted the "Marco Civil" with strong provisions for network neutrality; and, lastly, 

• The Dynamic Coalition on Network Neutrality developed its own understanding which fed into a Model Framework on Network Neutrality, initiated by the Council of Europe.

The Session, among other issues, will address the following policy questions:

• How to ensure freedom of expression and other social, economic and cultural rights.

• How to ensure end-to-end consumer choice and unfettered access to the Internet, enabling consumers to access all legal content.

• How to ensure requisite network transparency

• How to ensure competition among over-the-top providers. This cluster of issues also includes media consolidation and related questions.

• How to define what is considered appropriate network management.

Other questions may be added to the list as a result of the IGF Secretariat’s call for public input.

Inter-regional Dialogue Session

Inter Regional and National Dialogue

Wednesday, Sept 3, 2014

Room  B2, Rumeli Ground Floor

Time: 2:30 - 6 p.m.

 

The 2014 National/Regional IGF Initiatives session at IGF Istanbul 2014 is a focused interactive session with engagement of coordinators and participants from the national and regional IGF Initiatives, and others interested or engaged in the Initiatives. There are two segments, with Segment one focusing identifying issue commonalities and differences across the Initiatives and with the IGF. The second segment raises ideas and perspectives for how Initiatives collaborate and influence the IGF.   A key output from the session will be recommendations for how the national and regional IGF Initiatives can draw from, and contribute into the IGF going forward.

 

National and Regional IGF Initiatives continue to grow in numbers, and to diversity in their focus, and contribution to Internet governance.   Initially launched in just a few countries and primarily focused on preparation to participate in the IGF, the national and regional IGF Initiatives are now a predictable and stable intercessional contributory platform.  In 2014, 11 IGF Initiatives self identified as regional IGF Initiatives; 20 identified as national IGF Initiatives; and four ‘other’ Initiatives, all of whom were focused on youth are listed on the intgovforum.org list of Initiatives.  These Initiatives have a proven track record of reoccurring sessions annually, and provide linkages to their communities from what is happening in the IGF consultation and planning process.

 

The Inter-national/regional session builds on what has now become a key track during the IGF, and will provide a report into the Emerging Issues/Taking Stock session.

WS72: Building Technical Communities in Developing Regions
Independent, volunteer-based special-interest communities fill a very significant role in the Internet ecosystem. These communities of technical specialists provide an important forum for knowledge and resource sharing, skill development, relationship building and global networking.
While common in developed economies, there is still much to be done to develop robust local and regional technical communities in developing regions.
This workshop will focus on how such communities emerge and evolve; models for management, support and regional and international collaboration; and the role they play in strengthening Internet Governance at a local and regional level in developing countries.

Workshop Room 01 (Rumeli Ground Floor / Room B1)

WS94: Creating, protecting and providing access to digital culture
The discussion seeks to address the interrelationship that is developing between the copyright regime and born-digital content in order “to accommodate technological innovation and new social patterns of consumption whilst supporting creativity and economic sustainability in both the developed and developing world” (IFLA Trend Report 2013).

In this respect, it is clear that digital technology has a great impact on traditional methods of content creation and distribution. The Internet environment also reflects the development of collaborative creativity and the new, more dynamic position of the user in the network eco-system. On the other hand, the need for maintaining economic incentives for creators, publishers and producers in fields such as education or media appears essential, and challenges associated with how best to capture and preserve our digital heritage still to be resolved How to best balance the needs of creators, distributors, consumers, as well as what we preserve for future generations, is being discussed in a number of forums, with licensing models, voluntary agreements, legislative reform and other solutions being considered. The panelists will discuss these issues from a range of perspectives, identifying concrete barriers and possible solutions.

Values of Paragraph 72 of the Tunis Agenda, such as “Promote and assess, on an ongoing basis, the embodiment of WSIS principles in Internet governance processes” and “Identify emerging issues, bring them to the attention of the relevant bodies and the general public..” will serve as framework for the discussion.

WS56: Researching children's rights in a global, digital age [CB]
Researching children’s rights in a global, digital age

Workshop 56, Internet Governance Forum, Istanbul, November 2014

Organizer: Professor Sonia Livingstone, London School of Economics and EU Kids Online, s.livingstone@Lse.ac.uk

Theme: The panel will primarily address conference theme 6. Internet and human rights. It is also relevant to theme 2: Content creation, dissemination and use, and to theme 5: Enhancing digital trust.

Description: Policy makers rely on high quality research to underpin evidence-based governance decisions. Although many researchers and research users attend the IGF each year, research is rarely a focus of IGF activities. Thus the research agenda, key concepts, robust yet practical methods, and challenges of evaluation and application are yet to be discussed in this crucial international forum. An ever-growing diversity of evidence on children’s rights in a global digital age exists and more is needed, making this a timely moment for stakeholders to debate the design, conduct and uses of research.

Detailed overview: The round table will ask, primarily, what are the research priorities and key research questions regarding children’s rights in a global, digital age? What is good research practice in a complex domain where the Internet is fast-changing and children’s particular needs and perspectives vary hugely by culture and context? Can the methods for conducting and evaluating research that have been established in the global North be extended to the global South, now that children are going online across the globe, or do new considerations apply? To what extent can the evidence usefully guide governance decisions, whether internationally, regionally or nationally? How to strengthen and promote dialogue between researchers and policy makers at all levels? Secondarily, it will ask, how can the research community achieve greater clarity and visibility regarding research priorities, good practice research methods and reliable statistics about children and digital media on a cross-national basis? How might we collaborate through research and stakeholder networks to sustain knowledge sharing?

The session brings together researchers and research users from different stakeholder groups ((academia, industry, regulator, UN organisation, NGO, activist) and from diverse continents around the world to identify the priority research questions, reputable research methods, and key research challenges to be faced when generating a truly global evidence base to underpin Internet governance that advances children’s rights in a digital age.

WS10: New Global Visions for Internet Governance, ICTs and Trade
The “digital economy”, based on the Internet, allows large or small businesses to have a global reach, to virtualize their processes, to mobilize their employees and business associates, and to drive velocity into their efforts. We need to consider the co-dependent relationship of globalization and the Internet, as a driver of future models of governance, economics and trade.

The workshop’s goal is to offer best practices by which we can advance new “global visions” for bringing economic growth and societal benefit through the “digital economy”.

Panelists, drawing on case studies, will explore the workshop’s subject:

- Innovation: Globalization based on the Internet, with its focus on dispersed production and value-chains, and consequent interdependence between countries, has created potential for new visions for innovation with significant implications for trade and investment.
- The Potential for economic growth and development: ICTs have increased globalization and enhanced the flows of human capital across borders, international communication has increased, all making possible a greater participation of emerging country citizens in the global economy.
- Governance policies impact on globalization: Government measures that limit globalization or that require “localization” should be examined for their impact on global trade and investment in the “digital economy.”
- The role of private sector stakeholders in globalization: Examine the vital role of the private sector, arising from private sector competition, investment, and diffusion of ICTs in fostering the benefits of globalization.

Agenda:

1. Free Flow of Data and Information for Fostering Innovation and Economic Growth
- Ross LaJeunesse, Head of International Policy, Google

2. Overcoming Contradictory tendencies in the “Digital Economy” with a Focus on Developing- Country Enterprises
- Dr. Rohan Samarajiva, Chair, LIRNEasia, Colombo, Sri Lanka

3. How Innovation in Emerging Countries Contribute to further Economic Growth and Social Development
- Minister Diego Molano Vega, Bogota, Colombia

4. Recent Policy and Regulatory Developments in the Termination of International Communication Traffic
- Sam Paltridge, OECD, Paris France

5. Current Cases concerning Required Localization of Networks and Data Storage and their Consequences for Trade Law
- Dr. John Selby, Macquarie University, Sydney, Australia

6. Impact of Changing Market and Technology Realities on Current and Future Trade Negotiations and Internet Policies
- Jacqueline Ruff, Vice President, Verizon Corporation, Washington, DC

7. Limits and Potential for a New Vision of Globalization based on the Evolving Multistakeholder Model
- Subi Chaturvedi, Lady Shri Ram College for Women, University of Delhi, New Delhi, India

8. As we Pursue Policy Goals of Investment, Competition and Innovation in Global Markets are Legacy Regulatory Models in Alignment with Market Facts?

WS206: An evidence based intermediary liability policy framework [CB]
Economic activity, human development and civic engagement converge on the Internet. In connecting producers and consumers of information, online intermediaries serve as a valuable tool for growth and innovation. By organising and facilitating access to information, data and user-generated content, intermediaries play a crucial role in protecting the human rights of end users. While the economic benefits provided by online intermediaries is fairly widely acknowledged, a concerted approach to understanding their impact on human rights demands our urgent attention.
This workshop will consider the various roles and functions that intermediaries fulfil in the online space. Currently, the types of intermediaries covered by different liability regimes changes considerably across jurisdictions. Policy concerns raised by classification of functions and responsibilities across different types of intermediaries are not addressed systematically in existing law or jurisprudence, leading to widely differing regimes being imposed both across different legal systems and within the same legal system. The aim of this workshop will be, then, to come to a more in-depth and rounded understanding of what are the different classes of intermediaries, how they differ functionally and if their differing roles should bear an impact on their responsibility with regards to protection of human rights.
The workshop will be an opportunity to present and discuss ongoing research on the changing definition of intermediaries and their responsibilities across jurisdictions and technologies and contribute to a comprehensible framework for liability that is consistent with the capacity of the intermediary and with international human-rights standards.

The Economic and Social Council has tasked the Commission on Science and Technology for Development (CSTD) with conducting a ten-year review of the progress made in the implementation of the World Summit on the Information Society (WSIS) outcomes.* As part of this review, the Economic and Social Council requested the Commission to collect inputs from all stakeholders. The objective of this consultation is to provide opportunity to all stakeholders to share any experiences and insights believed to be of value for the ten-year review.

The discussion will center around the following questions: 

• To what extent has a people-centred, inclusive and development-oriented Information Society developed in the 10 years since the WSIS?

• How far do you consider the implementation of WSIS outcomes to have been achieved?

• What are the challenges to the implementation of WSIS outcomes and to the emergence of a people-centred, inclusive and development-oriented Information Society?

• What should be the priorities for stakeholders seeking to achieve WSIS outcomes and progress towards the Information Society in the post-2015 development agenda?

* More information of the CSTD's ten-year review of the implementation of WSIS outcomes is available at:

WS169: Technologies & Policies to Connect the Next Five Billion
Governance problem/question/challenged to be addressed.
This workshop discusses the technologies and policies needed to enable access for the next five billion. It will cover some of the most promising Internet technologies and the areas where they should be deployed. For instance, the workshop will discuss the need for wireless platforms in rural markets and other areas that will benefit greatly from a high degree of shared infrastructure, particularly with an electrical powering solution. It will also discuss the need, over time, for fiber-based networks to gradually fill across the network, migrating from the core to the edge.
Along with those technologies, a certain set of policies (many of which may not require laws) can facilitate the prompt and efficient deployment of broadband infrastructure. These policies include (1) promoting shared infrastructure, (2) liberalizing spectrum policy, (3) facilitating access and interconnection through Internet exchange points (“IXPs”), (4) creating an ecosystem that stimulates demand for broadband (and associated innovation, entrepreneurship, and technical experimentation), and (5) sharing information and discussing best practices among parties with common interests within geographical regions.

WS63: Preserving a Universal Internet: The Costs of Fragmentation
As Internet governance and Internet-related public policy issues rise to the top of the international political agenda, a variety of states are exploring measures that may lead, deliberately or inadvertently, to Internet fragmentation. Such measures include (but are not limited to) those intended to prevent or mitigate harms associated with digital connectivity, as well as measures intended to capture economic benefits resulting from online activity, such as implementing alternate models for monetizing the exchange of Internet traffic or taxation or imposing fees on online activity. Extreme efforts entail the creation of entirely separate national Internet analogues with limited or non-existent connectivity to the World Wide Web. Other efforts include extensive firewall and censorship schemes and “opt-in” regimes that, for example, require individuals to explicitly declare their intent to view adult material online.

The effectiveness of such approaches to reducing digital harm and capturing economic benefits is unclear and can pose potential risks to the end-to-end accessibility of the Internet. This workshop will focus on this latter set of issues, by attempting to scope the magnitude of the costs of Internet fragmentation. Detailed cost estimates require a great deal of economic and other research, outside the scope of an IGF workshop; however, there is value in setting the framework for such a research and policy agenda. Panelists will be invited to speak to these issues according to the nature of their expertise. The panel includes technical experts, economic policy analysts, diplomatic practitioners, Internet governance practitioners, experts in international development, and entrepreneurs.

Online child protection
Whether it be schoolwork and research, or games, socializing, and inter-continental communication, young people today are constantly connected.  Indeed, kids of the 2000s are literally "growing up online."  And, while technology, mobile devices, and the Internet offer a vast array of benefits, like everything in life, the online world involves some risk.  The Child Online Protection Best Practices Forum will define and frame the most pressing online safety and related issues facing young people today.  It will compare and contrast risks and opportunities based on geography, culture, age, family values, and children's individual maturity levels to name a few.  Representatives from the global child protection community, law enforcement, government, civil society, and the private sector will share their views, as we all seek to make the online world a place where children can grow and thrive more safely in our 21st century world.

7th Meeting of the
Dynamic Coalition on Internet and Climate Change (DCICC)

9th IGF Forum

Istanbul, Turkey


4 September 2014, from 9:00 to 10:30 (Room 6)

The Dynamic Coalition on Internet and Climate Change (DCICC) will gather key players from the Internet community and the ICT sector, such as governments, citizens, NGOs, business and academia, at its seventh physical meeting in Istanbul (Turkey) during the ninth IFG Forum.

Most of the economic value created by the Internet falls outside of the technology sector, with 75 percent of the benefits captured by companies in more traditional industries according to McKinsey.

Participants will present successful experiences and best practices from different regions of how providing access to the Internet, as well as harnessing ICT infrastructure and services, can spur economic growth and enable a sustainable use of natural resources.

Participants will also set out new priorities and actions to further advance the work of the DCICC in establishing collaborative multi-stakeholder partnerships to build a green economy, halt climate change and ensure a sustainable future using ICTs and the Internet.

WS61: Policies and practices to enable the Internet of Things [CB]
This session brings together policy makers, business and civil society to discuss how to best enable the Internet of Things (IoT). In the coming decade billions of devices in homes and businesses will be connected.

The workshop will enable an interactive exchange and discussion in six areas:

• Openness: The development and deployment of IoT needs to be inclusive, innovation promoted and the role of competition underlined.
• Trust: IoT devices and systems will collect and store enormous amounts of public and private data often in new realms of our daily lives. This should be subject to the highest standards and good practices that enable the protection of personal privacy and the exploitation of public goods that such data may enable for economic and social development.
• Access to (public sector) information: Public sector actors need to view sharing data as a key function. Private sector actors may need new frameworks in which they can share data, which could be beneficial to society as a whole.
• Numbering: The deployment of IPv6 is essential to the IoT as well as the role of other identifiers that extends to the numbers in mobile networks, such as telephone and IMSI-numbers.
• Spectrum: Many IoT devices will require wireless connections. Access to spectrum is therefore critical.
• Jobs and skills: IoT will push a further revolution in manufacturing, transport and many other fields with implications for skills and employment.

It is critical that all stakeholders identify the governance issues and share best practices.

WS2: Mobile, trust and privacy
More consumers now use their mobiles to go online to access information and services. Mobile plays a central role in driving economic growth and social opportunities. However, it is important that people can interact and access services in a trusted and secure environment that protects their online privacy.
Increasingly, mobile ecosystems acquire consumers’ data by default, while smartphones broadcast data by default. These ‘default’ positions challenge current data protection and privacy legal frameworks, and consumers’ ability to manage their privacy and online identities.
A key ingredient for strengthening trust in a mobile connected world is a user-centred privacy framework that applies to all digital and identity services whether in retail, healthcare, government, banking or any other sector.
The GSMA recently published global research showing trust matters and that mobile users want better transparency and choice over how their personal data are used. They also expect all companies accessing their data to treat their privacy consistently.
This workshop aims to bring together leading representatives from a broad spectrum of stakeholder groups to discuss privacy-related issues and ways to enhance mobile users’ trust.
Questions to address include:
• How can citizens – in both developed and developing countries – benefit from the responsible use of mobile-derived data?
• What are the key emerging issues and challenges of a mobile hyper-connected world?
• How can we ensure secure and trusted identities online?
• eds to be done to ensure consumers are able to access services in private, trusted and secure ways?
• What are the respective roles of law and industry self-regulation in enhancing trust?

WS77: Cybercrime cooperation 4 developing countries: int’l frameworks [CB]
Fostering trust: How can developing countries achieve international cooperation against cybercrime through legal frameworks

Developing Countries face serious challenges with respect to the investigation and prosecution of cybercrime especially obtaining evidence admissible in legal proceedings from Developed Countries where much of the data and services reside which is exacerbated by a lack of knowledge and misconceptions regarding efficacy of existing legal frameworks.

This capacity building workshop will:

a) Address specific questions from participants, clarify misconceptions regarding existing legal frameworks and provide substantive factual and legal responses based on the practical experience of experts regarding issues eg. transborder access to data, mutual legal assistance, 24/7 points of contact etc.

b) Demonstrate how joining and implementing legal frameworks can help build trust not only between governments but also the private sector and it can help mobilise resources for technical assistance and capacity building.

c) Address concerns of participants regarding legal frameworks for international cooperation at the previous IGF 2013 workshop by Developing Countries' Centre for Cyber Crime Law: 'Cybercrime Treaties: Advantages for Developing Countries'.

This capacity building workshop would effectively be the first of its kind for Developing Countries at the IGF since last year when all governments at the UN reached a unanimous consensus on the importance of cyber crime capacity building, a consensus echoed by business and civil society in a national context.

The interactive format would facilitate the transfer of knowledge and best practices rather than presentations or generic panel discussions.

Agenda

Presentation to set scene - capacity building:
- Means of obtaining data and cooperation from developed countries
- Value of legal vs non-binding/informal
- Elements of cooperation

WS132: Online Advocacy & Women Rights: Obstacles & successes
Women are increasingly turning to the Internet for growth and development opportunities, both socially and economically. While women constitute more than 50% of the active labor force, they still face serious challenges and barriers when it comes to employment, and other economic and social opportunities.
Even though women as social entrepreneurs have succeeded in marking a footprint in some countries, women in the MENA region continue to lag behind when it comes to business start-ups and female led business ventures.

Women can be a strong economic growth engine, yet they have to overcome personal and societal challenges and barriers that may prohibit their entry and long term success. Women are using social media and on-line platforms to advocate for women entrepreneurial rights, seeking to increase women’s social and economic opportunities at the local, national and international level as well as to advocate for entrepreneurship awareness and to strengthen women’s entrepreneurial and professional skills.

With the growing number of Internet users worldwide, advocates for women entrepreneurial rights are using the Internet itself to raise awareness, voice their demands, launch campaigns and create pathways for change.

The panel will look at how effective social media platforms are in advocating for women’s entrepreneurial rights in the MENA countries, examining examples and stories of successes in advocating online for women’s entrepreneurial rights and changes that were made in different societies, as well as the challenges that women still face in the entrepreneurial world in the MENA region (including Iran, KSA, and Egypt).

The session will also elaborate on the role that technology and the Internet are playing in empowering women and enhancing their growth and development in the business world as well as the obstacles that users are facing in accessing the Internet in the different MENA countries, addressing the important role of Internet governance mechanisms and commitments to WSIS +10. One speaker will present challenges in Africa and Latin America as a contrast and comparison to similar experiences in the MENA region.

The outcome report from this workshop will identify ideas for advancing awareness and opportunities for advancing engagement of women entrepreneurs within the region.

WS158: Promoting Platform Responsibility For Content Management
Digital technologies and the Internet offer tremendous opportunities for the creation and distribution of content, enabling users to express themselves and reach their audiences in unprecedented ways. At the same time, the advancement of digital technologies relating to identification and rights management has brought to the market increasingly efficient and affordable solutions to deal with potentially illegal material.

However, due to the complexity of the contextual assessments required to determine the legality of such material, these solutions are far from perfect. For this reason, it is crucial that technical solutions be deployed in conjunction with safeguards preventing their abuse, and ensuring the respect of due process, privacy and freedom of expression of the parties involved.

Increasingly, these safeguards depend on the terms and conditions adopted by online platforms, and the procedures through which they operate. Therefore, it seems appropriate to shift the discussion on intermediary liability to a focus on “responsibility”, in order to promote human rights-compliant procedures to content management.

This workshop aims to bring together a variety of stakeholders to discuss the problems associated with content removal in two distinct scenarios: copyright infringement and offensive (including indecent and defamatory) content.

While each of these scenarios presents peculiarities that may call for different approaches, they share in the need to provide a quick and effective remedy for potential victims without unduly restricting human rights. Ultimately, the workshop aims to identify best practices that Internet platforms can adopt to that end.

WS82: Alternative routes protecting human rights on the Internet [CB]
Enforcing the correct level of human rights protection is very often a matter of jurisdictional reach. In the cyberspace, there could be two obvious alternatives to create a separate jurisdictional space: the technological option and the legal option.

Over a year before German Chancellor Merkel travelled to France in February 2014 to speak with French President Hollande about creating the foundations of a “protected” EU Internet, the EU-funded MAPPING project had already spelt out its plan of researching if “parallel universes” in cyberspace could be a solution for promoting human rights. This objective of creating spaces within cyberspace where European values on privacy and other human rights may be applied could conceivably be created by technological or legal means.

In its first stakeholder assembly (Rome 20-21 May 2014) MAPPING will be dedicating a session to “On-line mass surveillance, security and privacy: is an international treaty the only way forward?” including a discussion of the recent ECJ decision declaring “invalid” the EU Data Retention Directive.

In the IGF, the MAPPING consortium aims to take this debate even further with as many Internet governance stakeholders as possible - from Europe and beyond. How can we have human rights embedded in the current Internet structure? Are there technological or legal solutions to this issue? Would a “Schengen cloud” human rights Internet, as suggested by French and German leaders, be the solution? How would others see such a possible space?"

WS136: Internet as an engine of growth and development
For more than a decade, information and communication technologies (ICT) have been attributed a key driver to socio-economic transformation and play a catalytic role in the attainment of the Millennium Development Goals. They increase efficiency, provide access to new markets or services, create new opportunities for income generation and give poor people a voice. In this regard, several researches revealed the contributions of ICTs, particularly the Internet and mobile, to economic growth in the continent. ECA is currently undertaking a research which is being finalized to explore the contribution of ICTs to recent economic growth of the continent. Recent McKinsey (2013) report estimates that while Africa still constitute 167 million Internet users with 16 percent penetration, the contribution of the Internet to GDP amounts to USD $18 billion with a prospect to grow by over16-fold by 2025.

In the context of the themes of IGF2014, particularly in relation to the sub-theme on ‘Internet as engine for growth & development’, the workshop will facilitate a stakeholders analysis workshop on the contribution of the Internet to Africa’s economic growth addressing the following two issues:

- The contribution of the Internet to recent economic growth in Africa
- Trends in Internet infrastructure (broadband), innovation and growth

Privacy and the Right to be Forgotten

Among various concepts of privacy, right to be forgotten has become more significant in the recent years. One of the main reasons of this is the fact that right to be forgotten is fundamental in the digital age. The recent decision of European Court of Justice about Google has heated the debate over the right to be forgotten. Many people have described this as “making history” while some others have questioned the implementation of the decision.

This session aims to bring together leading representatives from a broad spectrum of stakeholder groups to discuss issues related to the right to be forgotten. 

Each speaker will be given 5-7 minutes to present his/her views on the issue. Then the floor will be open to participants also since the aim is to have an inclusive and open discussion on the subject. The social media contributors will also be given a voice by the moderator.

Main/Focus Session: Evolution of Internet Governance Ecosystem and Role of the IGF

Description/Agenda/Questions

Format/Agenda

The main session will have two sub-sessions, with different speakers. Both use a Town Hall approach in format, with engagement with participants in the room, and remote participants.

This main session will use a ‘town hall’ approach with Session one relying on senior leaders from various organizations in the Internet Governance “Ecosystem” on how the IG Ecosystem is evolving, what issues and external factors and key activities are driving changes. This is followed by engagement with participants in the room. The focus includes global processes and initiatives: NETmundial, the CSTD Working group on Enhanced Co-operation; UN-CSTD, WSIS +10 Review, ITU, ICANN, UNESCO, UNGA Resolution on WSIS Review Modalities, etc, which will inform the dialogue and engagement of participants in the room, and following remotely.

Questions and comments from participants in the room and remotely, will close the first segment, with a strong focus on further elaborating on additional examination of the IG Ecosystem from the participants’ perspective. Allocation of time will be 70/30 split between questions directed to the speakers, and audience engagement.

The second segment –“Town Hall” is designed to move into a more interactive approach with engagement then with the room’s [and remote] participants. It will open with brief statements from the invited speakers on the implications of the first segment discussions for the broader IG ecosystem, various stakeholders, and for the IGF itself.  Allocation of time for Segment Two is proposed as 40 /60 with a strong focus on participant engagement, including remote participants.

Substantive rapporteurs will record summary notes for both sessions. and participate with the co-moderators in the preparation of the outputs summary and report of the session. 

Description of Issue

The Internet has been an engine of growth and development, bringing connectivity that bridges countries and cultures, connecting individuals, businesses, enterprises, and governments. The Internet and the resources it connects can inform, educate and empower and is a source of knowledge. Its contribution to social, cultural and economic growth and opportunity is recognized, but with its increased role and importance to societies, individuals and economies, comes key questions of governance, accountability, misuse, access.  Governments and organizations and individuals understandably turn to models they understand or are familiar with to address concerns they view about the use, and potential misuse of the Internet. As the Internet expands, existing organizations, such as the UN agencies, regional organizations, and others are examining their roles.  Newer organizations that follow more of the technical community’s bottom up governance approach, such as ICANN, now co exist alongside older intergovernmental organizations. The IGF was created by agreements in the Tunis Agenda, to further examine the kinds of issues and challenges emerging regarding the Internet’s governance. 

Since 2006, the IGF has been a platform for stakeholders to come together on an equal footing to discuss, exchange ideas and share good practices with each other. While recognizing that there are no negotiated outcomes from the IGF, over the years the IGF has both inspired those with policy making power and acted as a platform to build bridges and engage in dialogue.  While many are embracing the engagement of stakeholders more directly in decisions and governance, others remain concerned that more intergovernmental oversight over the Internet is needed.  Numerous discussions during 2013 and 2014 have continued to elevate these debates.

Today, national policy makers and global policy makers, alongside various stakeholders are engaging in developing approaches to deal with key issues, whether about bringing connectivity to the unconnected, or addressing rules for protection of individual privacy online, or security of networks. A debate about who does what, and who should drive the Internet ecosystem has evolved rapidly. 

While over the years the IGF has also become a space that discusses solutions, questions continue about what next for the IGF? And for the other existing institutions and organizations?  How should the IGF co exist with other structures? What is the best way to  give developing countries the similar opportunities as wealthier nations to engage in the debate on Internet governance.

Questions for co-moderators consideration[to be refined with co-moderators to reduce to 2-3 per segment].  – Not all questions will be posed to and responded by all speakers

Segment 1 – Key questions for Speakers, and Participants

1. What are the key issues, Problems, and challenges that your organization focuses on in the IG space?

2. Speakers from relevant groups are invited to comment on specific activities or events that they consider relevant for global fora/activities/events on the Internet Governance Ecosystem: NETmundial, WSIS+10 HL, CSTD, ITU, ICANN,  UNGA WSIS Review, and other relevant activities and events, identifying both positive and negative contribution to the Global IG process.

3. Evolution of the multistakeholder engagement in [[your] organization – how is MS evolving in the intergovernmental system: challenges.

4. Do all problems require the same approach of multistakeholder engagement? – e.g. differentiation of approaches to the Internet governance of various stakeholders and in different fora?

6. Your views on the contributions and value in IGF to date

Segment 2- Key questions for both Panel and participants

1. What do you think are the key issues that are driving IG Eco-system development?

2.The Future of IGF – How should it evolve and change?  Are there new competitors to the IGF?

3. What role should the IGF play to catalyze broader engagement by different government agencies, more stakeholders?

4. Are negotiated outcomes from IGF meetings feasible? What are the issues with moving into negotiation of outcomes?

5. Is it time to call for and develop processes for a more active role in developing consensus in key areas? If so, what are the possible changes to the IGF structure and processes and resources?

e.g. Can structured working groups, such as the Best Practice Forums piloted at IGF 2014 and other activities offer an opportunity to help resolve the inherent tension between inclusive conversation and effective decision-making that can be taken forward into other fora, as called for in Para 72,(g)?

6.              Are there any opportunities for the MAG and other IGF structural design processes and bodies to be made more inclusive, transparent and/or democratic, to help stakeholders feel more ownership?

Development of Approach:

The speakers and representatives of key stakeholder groups in the IG Ecosystem Session have been identified in an effort to be as inclusive of many of the major IG organizations. The second session brings speakers from different stakeholder groups who are experienced and knowledgeable about the IGF, as well as other key fora.  Participation from the room will be critical to hear new voices.

Four microphones [in the respective stakeholder groups] in the room will allow for maximum minute long interventions from the diverse community, with two remote moderators monitoring online questions and interventions to be included.  All interventions will be kept short.

WS220: Transnational Surveillance & Crossborder Privacy Protections
How can we protect our privacy when our most private communications can be covertly collected and analysed by States all around the world? How can freedom of expression exist if every time we read a text or article by a controversial author, our actions are automatically logged and stored by the machines, algorithms, and agents of the state?

Since the Snowden revelations, many people have begun to realise that the laws of their own country provide only ineffective protection against mass surveillance and the laws of other countries provide them with no protection at all. The world is waking up to the reality that most governments treat the private communications of non-residents and foreign nationals as fair game. The UN Human Rights Committee has for the first time remonstrated the US government for failing to provide extra-territorial protection for the privacy of non-citizens and legal challenges are being brought against bulk surveillance of foreign communications around the world.

The purpose of this roundtable is to build upon these developments and discuss what needs to be done to ensure established international human rights law is respected in the context of transnational surveillance. Among the questions to be addressed are:

Should we allow the intelligence services of one country to snoop on the residents of another without restraint?
Can any country freely violate the rights of foreigners by claiming they fall outside their jurisdiction?
Are existing surveillance laws compatible with the right to non-discrimination under international law?

Establishing and supporting CERTs for Internet security

This year, the IGF launched a Best Practices effort on the establishment of CERT teams for Internet Security. Over the last two months, three Lead experts supported by an independent consultant engaged with a community of participants from major stakeholder groups to exchange existing CSIRT development practices and discussed ways to further collaborate. A draft document was developed based on these initial discussions. The topics identified as part of this multi-stakeholder preparatory process will be further discussed and finalized during this 90 minute session.

CERT or CSIRT (Computer Security Incident Response Teams) are organizations of information security personnel who aim to address security incidents as they arise, whether at an organizational, pan-organizational or even national level.  They follow defined processes, combined with engineering ingenuity, to ensure security incidents are properly identified, contained and remediated. By nature, many incidents have impact beyond the constituency of one CSIRT, and thus teams often partner with other teams, as well as with private sector, government, civil society and the technical community to protect users of the internet.

This round table session will cover the various opportunities and challenges involved in the establishment of Computer Emergency Response Teams to improve internet security. 

Topics to be discussed will include the role of a CSIRT teams in private sector and government, what a “national CSIRT” truly means, and the high level collaboration processes involved in coordinating widespread incidents. As output of this session, a summary document will be published by the IGF, with recommendations and next-steps on topics ripe for further multi-stakeholder debate between the technical community, government, civil society and private sector.

The session will be led by lead experts Cristine Hoepers (of CERT.br), Adli Wahid and Maarten Van Horenbeeck (of FIRST) and supported by UN consultant Wout De Natris. We strongly invite participants from all stakeholder groups to attend the session and contribute. No technical experience in the CSIRT community is required, though we recommend making yourself familiar with the preparatory document shared on the IGF web site to be prepared for the discussion.

Dynamic Coalition on Accessibility and Disability
The goal of the face-to-face meeting of DCAD during IGF 2013 is to always continue to work toward the goal of ensuring that ICT accessibility is included in discussions related to Internet governance, aiming to create a future in which all users have equivalent access to the opportunities presented by ICTs globally. It is also to insure the IGF secretariat and host countries improves their performance in the actually provision of accessibility of the ICT technology and physical environment at the annual meeting. 

The DCAD will continue to discuss how cooperation and collaboration with IGF can be improved and to alert IGF stakeholders of the importance of building a culture of accessibility awareness among the policy makers, regulators, standards developers, service providers and software and hardware manufacturers involved in telecommunications and ICTs. The paramount topic is now the improvement of remote participation for persons with disabilities in the meetings and for all who wish to participate at a distance.

The DCAD meeting will as it has done every year since the beginning of its inception, also discuss how to continue to assist the IGF secretariat and other members of IGF, in making sure host countries conduct accessible meetings, in accessible premises, with accessible services for persons with disabilities, taking into account the improvements and the progress of the past years.

DCAD has been working on an updated version of the DCAD Accessibility Guidelines for accessible meetings and to present that updated document at the Final Plenary Session.

DCAD will as it has always done review the accessibility arrangements made by the host country and the outcomes from the DCAD/G3ict workshop “Multi-Stakeholder Engagement: Imperative for Web Accessibility” being held on Tuesday, September 2, 2014, 9:00 a.m. - 10:30 a.m. Room 01

There will be an opportunity for any other business to accommodate DCAD members to address other issues not foreseen at this time.

Workshop Room 02 (Rumeli Ground Floor / Room B2)

11:00am

Dynamic Coalition on the Internet of Things
Going back to the 3rd IGF in Hyderabad (2008), the Internet of Things has been subject to debate during the IGF, as it was considered by multiple stakeholders as one of the “game changers” towards the future of the Internet. With the formal inauguration of the Dynamic Coalition during the IGF in Nairobi (2011) this relevance was confirmed, and the discussions between a wide range of stakeholders has continued, since.
Today, we are at a point where the Internet of Things (or: IoT) is widely recognized to as “inevitable” and developing with increased speed – though in a fragmented way and with limited accountability. Smart environments are going to be the next big thing, in fact is has started already. Smart meters, smart cars, smart TV and all the little additional things we can do with our smart phone by using smart apps. The technology is long used by other industries already, like the logistic industry or wholesale and retail. But still we know so little about the ethical and privacy implications this development will have on our daily life. We also do not have established policies relating to accountability and transparency with which the processes for storing and using the data collected in IoT will be treated. We are also still discovering the legal implications of IoT.
With a clear calling for further introduction of IoT for different reasons, the importance of ensuring that it evolves in a way people want is also imminent. In the IGF context, the development aspects of IoT are also a serious concern. Some argue for growth and resource saving models - others against the damage this technology might cause to our health conditions and big brother scenarios. Now that Google spent 3,2 Billion Dollar on NEST Labs, we can start a discussion on a concrete example and explore to what extend there need to be public policy discussions with regard to using this technology in the future in our house and daily life.
Multistakeholder perspective
The IoT will help resolving societal challenges that couldn’t be addressed in other ways, or not without much higher costs. These challenges are different in different parts of the world, as for everything that has to do with the Internet. Whereas in some parts of the world the emphasis is on “ensuring privacy” in other parts of the world the emphasis may be on public safety, health, or on production and sales of goods in a new market. In still other parts of the world, the concerns are developmental. It is clear that, like with the other aspects of the Internet, the IoT will only manifest itself in ways we want if industry develops solutions consumers want to buy or use, with “things” that citizens accept to be present in their environment, and with government accepting that the IoT environment is part of the public space in which they have a role of ensuring public safety, etc. No one party can do this alone.
Global perspective
Like the rest of the Internet, IoT doesn’t stop at the border. Whether it is a car, or a plane, full with communicating objects crossing a border, or whether it is data that flow across networks, or consumer goods with IoT attributes that are imported… it is clear that it would serve people best if global standards are set and followed. It offers local economies the opportunity to export to other parts of the world, and it allows to import solutions that have been created elsewhere, as it is possible to “plug them in”.
The need for what the IoT has to offer will vary from region to region. Whereas in some regions emphasis may be on establishing extended care environments, supporting elderly to live independently, longer (such as in some countries where the demography is moving towards an elder civilization over the years to come), in other areas the emphasis may be on environmental monitoring (for instance: rain forests protection against slash and burn by using RFID beacons at strategic locations, highly polluted areas to constantly measure the quality of the water, and/or the air).
With all the benefits IoT may bring to different societies, it also comes with challenges that need to be addressed, rather than just closing our eyes and let things happen. For this we need the debate to take place with all stakeholders involved, at equal footing, at all levels (global as well as local).
Agenda for DC IoT: Global governance challenges
It is likely that all governance challenges in IoT are already covered somewhere else. However: with the emergence of the IoT some challenges get more and new emphasis, even more so when projected towards a future in which many (billions of) things will be connected. These challenges include:
1- Privacy: the amount of data is exploding by the increase of connected sensors that measure and share. These data range from being very much linked to persons to not being related to persons at all, the value towards users, businesses, and society is potentially huge, and so far there are no “good housefather” concepts (expectation embedded in the Law to express that “current practice standards” need to be fulfilled, at least) for where and how to store the data in autonomous IoT networks: accountability and transparency of processes are needed here. So with all our concerns about big data, addressing these issues for IoT environments is a crucial governance issue, while recognizing that some data are at all subject of privacy concerns, and others arenot. We are very early in understanding this from a technical level. Policy implications are also very rudimentary;
2- Security: the IoT includes “actuators” that are partly there to be triggered by people, and partly (semi-)autonomous, triggered by data from sensors and networks. As we know, everything that is networked is vulnerable against attack, and next to establishing what level of security may be expected from different applications, we may need to get to a “taxonomy” of applications in terms of their vulnerability (governance issue). Whereas some applications will require no or limited security measures (such as meta data), other IoT devices may not be detectable at all in a wireless space (such as peacemakers for the heart). In addition, a balance needs to be found in the use of IoT for ensuring security and respecting privacy, as the recent debate about pervasive monitoring on the Internet shows;
3- Ethics: understanding the ethics is very much society context dependent, and that the underlying concepts even in the same society are subject to change over time, addressing this is crucial if “trust” is to be maintained in society at certain levels. In order to establish the right level of “ethics” in applications, it will be important that people are well informed, and that “things” are “transparent thus trusted – otherwise it will not work. A clear example here is the abandoning of electronic voting systems because “the people” don’t trust the working of these black boxes. Ongoing dialogue on governance issues related to this is necessary at all levels;
4- Spectrum: managing the radio spectrum has been an interesting dance over the last decades. Without going deep into the intricacies of this, it is clear that if we want to avoid that “spectrum” becomes an issue for the further roll-out in masses of IoT, we need to address that in two ways: ensuring there is bandwidth availability for IoT; ensuring that bandwidth is only used when needed, and if so very effectively.
Finding ways forward on these issues are to be done at all levels, from the household itself, to the local community, nation, region, and up to the global level itself. For the latter, the IGF has proven to be an excellent place to discuss these governance issues with different stakeholders at global level. The DC IoT is becoming a focal point where insights and concerns can be shared, and validated. Since Bali, DC IoT has continued to convene meetings at regional IG events, and is now working towards “mapping the mine field” thus identifying those issues that stakeholders should take into account, wherever they are, whatever their role is.

WS69: The Payment-Privacy-Policing Paradox in Web Payments Systems
During IGF 2013, a session was held to discuss emerging issues related to fair trade and taxation of virtual goods. During the session, and throughout the week, issues related to the need for payment standards on the Web were raised. These issues were taken to the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) Technical Plenary (TPAC 2013) and discussed. The result of those discussions solidified into a plan to hold a global Web Payments workshop in 2014.

In March 2014, the W3C hosted the first ever Workshop on Web Payments in Paris, France. The result of the two day workshop was consensus around the desire to address a number of problems related to sending and receiving money on the Web. Potential standardization targets focused on identity, initiating payments, digital wallets, and verifiable digital receipts.

Trust is a fundamental part of many financial transactions, and while the role of establishing trusted identities on the Internet was seen as vital, it was clear that the policy discussion would require a more in-depth multi-stakeholder approach.

Ensuring that any identity standard will be flexible enough to 1) align with national and international laws, 2) protect privacy and anonymity, and 3) not aid mass surveillance initiatives, while 4) working in concert with international anti-terrorism-funding laws requires input from civil society, government, intergovernmental organizations, private sector, and the technical community.

Agenda
------

1. An Introduction to Web Identity (15-20 minutes, by panelists)
2. Web Identity Use Cases (30 minutes, group discussion)
3. Privacy and Regulatory Concerns (30 minutes, group discussion)
4. Government Input and Coordination (15 minutes, group discussion)

Attendees are urged to watch the speaker presentations BEFORE the event as only a brief “less than 5 minute, no slides overview” will be provided for each during the event. In this “no presentations” 90 minute group work session, attendees will generate input that will be fed into this year's W3C Technical Plenary (October 2014). The input provided by the IGF community will include comments on what an Internet Identity system should and shouldn’t do from a technical, privacy, surveillance, taxation, and legal policy perspective.

Policy Questions
----------------

1. Should the Web/Internet have an extensible identity mechanism as a part of it's core architecture?
2. Should the identity mechanism be globally decentralized, centralized at each government, or something else?
3. Should privacy and pervasive monitoring be primary design concerns?
4. How should the technology interface with the regulatory environment in the nations in which it operates?
5. What regulatory hurdles does such a technology face?
6. Which groups and governments should have an ongoing interest in this activity?

Policies for Enabling Broadband: Special Focus on OTTs and Level Playing Fields (Host Country Session)

Over the Top (OTT) services refer to the delivery of voice, video and data to end users through an unmanaged method over a network which is not provided by that network operator. As various services such as voice, texting, and broadcasting are converging, OTT services revolutionize the way in which ICT services are offered, foster innovation and create value added. On the other hand, they are affecting the whole broadband ecosystem including mainly fixed and mobile network operators. The impact of OTT can be seen in the rapid increase in the data traffic in recent years.

Within this context, this session is aimed at examining the implications of OTT services and facilitating a discussion among network operators, content providers and regulators.

Each speaker will be given 5-7 minutes to present his/her views on the issue. Then the floor will be open to participants also since the aim is to have an inclusive and open discussion on the subject. The social media contributors will also be given a voice by the moderator.
