An updated program of the three days of the Conference can be found here. The 3rd Global Conference of the Internet & Jurisdiction Policy Network aims to build trust, enhance policy coherence, and discuss concrete modalities for joint action. It will be organized without formal panels to encourage dynamic exchanges among participants and will be structured around Stakeholder Plenary sessions on Day 1 and 3, and three parallel Workstreams on Day 2. 


Expressions of Interest can be submitted here. Due to space restrictions, only 280 senior-level stakeholders will be able to participate in the 3rd Global Conference. The Secretariat, with the help of its high-level Advisory Group, evaluates all expressions of interest in conjunction with criteria of delegation sizes, as well as stakeholder and geographic balance.



ABOUT THE GLOBAL CONFERENCES


The Global Conferences of the Internet & Jurisdiction Policy Network are important regular 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 regularly take stock of the ongoing policy development activities facilitated by the Secretariat of the Internet & Jurisdiction Policy Network, and to agree on how to structure the work conducted in the Policy Network.


The Global Conferences of the Internet & Jurisdiction Policy Network and its outcomes receive significant international attention. They are organized in partnership with a key government (In the past with France in 2016, Canada in 2018 and Germany in 2019), and are institutionally supported by a unique coalition of international organizations comprised of the Council of Europe, European Commission, ICANN, OECD, UN ECLAC and UNESCO. They have been recognized by international documents ranging from the 2016 United Nations General Secretary Report on the Implementation of WSIS, to the 2018 G7 Cyber Group. Outcomes have been presented by the Secretariat to various international organizations and policy processes, such as the United Nations Internet Governance Forum, the Paris Peace Forum, or the G20. The Global Conferences of the Internet & Jurisdiction Policy Network and the groundbreaking work of its participants have been covered in media outlets including The Economist, Financial Times, Washington Post, or Politico.
