CONNECTing the Dots: Options for Future Action

Mar 03,2015 | 10:56 am

Ms. Mishi Choudhary will be speaking at an international multistakeholder conference on Internet-related issues organized by UNESCO in France, Paris from March 3-4, 2015.

This event is expected to have participants from governments, civil society, academia, private sector, the technical community, inter-governmental and international organizations as well as noted thought leaders, innovators and pioneers in the Internet Governance space.

The conference is part of UNESCO’s response in support of the decision taken by its 195 Member States. Through Resolution 52, adopted in 2013 at the 37th session of UNESCO’s General Conference, Member States called for a comprehensive and consultative multi-stakeholder study on Internet-related issues within UNESCO’s fields of competence. The study will examine current and emerging inter-related trends, challenges and opportunities around access to information and knowledge, freedom of expression, privacy, and ethical dimensions of the information society.

This UNESCO study, its findings, recommendations and the partnerships mobilized represent an important contribution to the World Summit on the Information Society (WSIS) +10 Review process and the post-2015 international development agenda.
