I&J organized

The three multistakeholder Contact Groups of the Internet & Jurisdiction Policy Network’s Programs on Data & Jurisdiction, Content & Jurisdiction and Domains & Jurisdiction will convene in Paris for three one-day meetings on January 23, January 24 and February 6, 2019.


The Contact Group meetings will mark an important milestone in the work to develop proposals for policy standards and operational solutions ahead of the 3rd Global Conference of the Internet & Jurisdiction Policy Network, which will take place on June 3-5, 2019 in Berlin and is organized in partnership with the Government of the Federal Republic of Germany with institutional support from the Council of Europe, European Commission, ICANN, OECD, UN ECLAC and UNESCO.


The past year, the three Contact Groups, composed of over 100 members from governments, Internet companies, technical operators, civil society, leading universities and international organizations from around the world, have been actively working to develop proposals for solutions to a broad range of cross-border legal issues on the Internet with the overall aim to develop concrete policy options that can be translated into collective action. Their work is based on the three Work Plans of the Ottawa Roadmap adopted at the 2nd Global Conference of the Internet & Jurisdiction Policy Network: Data & Jurisdiction Work Plan, Content & Jurisdiction Work Plan and Domains & Jurisdiction Work Plan.


The proposals of the Contact Groups will be released in April 2019 to allow for stakeholder consultations ahead of the 3rd Global Conference of the Internet & Jurisdiction Policy Network.

About the Contact Groups


Following the 2nd Global Conference of the Internet & Jurisdiction Policy Network, which took place on February 24-26, 2018, in Ottawa, Canada, three multistakeholder Contact Groups were established to implement the Ottawa Roadmap and its Work Plans. In Ottawa, stakeholders made a strong call for joint action and policy coherence: in each of the three Programs of the Internet & Jurisdiction Policy Network, they defined actionable Work Plans with common objectives and structuring questions that serve as mandate for the Contact Groups. The reconciliation of the three objectives of fighting abuses, protecting and promoting human rights, and enabling the development of the global digital economy is the guiding principle of their work. 


Building on the methodology of the intersessional work between the 1st and 2nd Global Conferences, the Contact Groups are comprised of senior-level stakeholders from around the world. All members, even if designated officially to represent their entities, serve in their personal capacity.


Each Contact Group is facilitated by a neutral Coordinator. They have been appointed by the Secretariat for their outstanding expertise and standing in the community, and serve in their personal capacity. Learn more about them here
