Input Documents About to Be Released for 2nd Global Internet and Jurisdiction Conference

Published on
October 27, 2017

"Policy Options" documents reflecting discussions in three "Contact Groups" set up in 2017 are being finalized and will serve as input for the second Global Internet and Jurisdiction Conference in Ottawa on February 26-28, 2018. 


To advance the results of the first Global Internet and Jurisdiction Conference, which was organized in Paris, in partnership with the Governmet of France in November 2016, the Secretariat of the Internet & Jurisdiction Policy Network has set up in 2017 three multistakeholder Contact Groups - one for each of its programs. 


Comprised of respected members from governments, Internet companies, technical operators, civil society, academia and international organizations, each Contact Group gathers about 20 actors that are actively involved in finding operational solutions to the Areas of Cooperation identified in Paris by over 200 participants from more than 40 countries.

The Contact Groups on Data & Jurisdiction, Content & Jurisdiction, and Domains & Jurisdiction started their respective work in April 2017 with the goal to map and identify concrete Policy Options for the Areas of Cooperation identified at the Paris Conference and summarized by the Secretariat in the following three Framing Papers.

The meetings of the three Contact Groups served as a neutral space for ongoing interactions to promote policy coherence among diverse initiatives and identify possible steps for joint action.


Between April and October 2017, over 60 representatives worked in the three Contact Groups intensively across time zones and stakeholder groups. Each group met virtually seven times and used mailing lists to identify with the support of the Secretariat what operational solutions and policy standards can be pragmatically achieved through multistakeholder coordination and cooperation.


The results of their work will be released in November 2017 in the form of “Policy Options” to allow for deliberations within and between stakeholder groups. They will subsequently be tabled as input documents at the second Global Internet and Jurisdiction Conference on February 26-28, 2018, which is organized in Ottawa by the I&J Secretariat in partnership with the Government of Canada, and institutionally supported by the OECD, UNESCO, the Council of Europe, the European Commission, and ICANN.


The Conference in Ottawa will be a critical moment to build on the results of this work and decide on concrete focus, priorities, as well as a clear methodology and roadmap to develop in the Internet & Jurisdiction Policy Network operational solutions for submission at the third Global Internet and Jurisdiction Conference in 2019.
