The Session will provide stakeholders with an update on the work of the Policy Network in 2019, in particular the publication of the Operational Approaches documents, which were developed by the Members of the three Policy Programs of the Internet & Jurisdiction Policy Network and which contain concrete proposals for Operational Norms, Criteria and Mechanisms to address some of the most pressing cross-border legal challenges of the digital 21st century.


In addition, the Session will inform participants on the outcomes of the 3rd Global Conference of the Internet & Jurisdiction Policy Network, held on June 3-5, 2019 in Berlin and hosted by the Government of the Federal Republic of Germany with the institutional support of the Council of Europe, European Commission, ICANN, OECD, United Nations ECLAC and UNESCO. 

At the Session, the full version of the Internet & Jurisdiction Global Status Report 2019 will also be launched. This Report is the world's first mapping of trends, actors, and initiatives with regard to cross-border legal challenges in cyberspace and is based on an unprecedented collaborative large-scale data collection. Key Findings of the Report (download PDF) were presented on the occasion of the 3rd Global Conference of the Internet & Jurisdiction Policy Network.
