The Internet & Jurisdiction Policy Network will hold its 3rd Global Conference on June 3-5, 2019, in Berlin, Germany. It will be organized in partnership with the Federal Government of Germany


The 1st Global Conference was organized in Paris, France, on November 14-16, 2016, in partnership with the Government of France and produced Areas of Cooperation. Based on these, stakeholders elaborated Policy Options Documents, which served as input in the 2nd Global Conference, held in Ottawa, Canada, on February 26-28, 2018, in partnership with the Government of Canada. There, over 200 senior-level stakeholder from more than 40 countries agreed on the Ottawa Roadmap with concrete Work Plans to foster policy coherence and joint action. 

To implement this Roadmap and its Work Plans, the I&J Secretariat forms multistakeholder Contact Groups, which will develop proposals for policy options and operational solutions in the Internet & Jurisdiction Policy Network. These proposals and potential modalities for implementation will be discussed by stakeholders in Berlin in June 2019. 


The Global Conferences of the Internet & Jurisdiction Policy Network are important milestones in addressing one of the greatest global governance challenges of the 21st century: how to manage the coexistence of national laws on the internet. They allow stakeholders to take stock of the ongoing policy development activities facilitated by the I&J Secretariat, and to agree on how to structure the work conducted in the Policy Network.
