Katitza Rodriguez, EFF International Rights Director is attending the The Council of Europe and Internet Freedom: From Principles to Global Treaty Law.
These bodies are also examining possible international law responses to the need to ensure Internet freedom and universality and the proper functioning and stability of the Internet, taking into account its fundamental cross-border nature and multi-stakeholder governance model. In this context, the Council of Europe is working on a draft recommendation of the Committee of Ministers on principles of international and multi-stakeholder cooperation.
The goal of the conference is to discuss the content of these principles and to explore possible further action in international law. In particular, the conference aims to explore viable options for creating an architecture for multi-stakeholder participation in international Internet-related public policy-making.
