EFF International Rights Director, Katitza Rodriguez will be moderating the open dialogue on privacy at the Third Latin American Preparatory Meeting for the Internet Governance Forum (IGF), which will take place on 3-5 August 2010 in the city of Quito, Ecuador.

The meeting is being organized by the Association for Progressive Communications (APC), the NUPEF Institute, and the Regional Internet Address Registry for Latin America and the Caribbean (LACNIC).

As in previous years, the purpose of the meeting is to provide a space for multistakeholder policy dialogue on Internet governance issues between governments, the private sector, the technical community, academia, and civil society organizations. The Latin American IGF preparatory meeting has three goals: (a) informing Latin American stakeholders about the issues and trends observed in the debates and discussions of the global IGF; (b) identifying regional priorities; and (c) broadening the region's participation in the 2010 Internet Governance Forum, which will take place in Lithuania in September.
