The United Nations Economic Commission for Latin America and the Caribbean (ECLAC) together with the Internet & Jurisdiction Policy Network jointly organize the regional conference "Challenges in an Interconnected World: Cross-border Data Flows, Data Protection and Cybersecurity", to be held on November 22, 2018, at ECLAC’s Headquarters in Santiago, Chile.


The conference will gather high-level representatives from governments, the private sector and civil society from the region to discuss policy priorities and concrete ways to address cross-border challenges on the internet at both regional and global levels. It will identify key trends and challenges in the region, and explore synergies between the work in the Internet & Jurisdiction Policy Network, and ELAC’s Digital Agenda for Latin America and the Caribbean (eLAC) process, including the outcomes of the Sixth Ministerial Conference on the Information Society in Latin America and the Caribbean, which took place in Cartagena, Colombia in 2018.


The conference program is designed around panel discussions on the state of cross-border data flows, privacy and data protection in Latin America, as well as interactive workshops corresponding to the three thematic programs of the Internet & Jurisdiction Policy Network: Data & Jurisdiction, Content & Jurisdiction and Domains & Jurisdiction.


The panels and workshops will will enable stakeholders to advance the development of solutions and operational standards both in the context of the eLAC process, and the 3rd Global Conference of the Internet & Jurisdiction Policy Network, will be held on June 3-5, 2019, in Berlin, Germany. ECLAC is one of the official institutional supporters of the 3rd Global Conference.
