Katitza Rodriguez, EFF's international rights director, is representing the Civil Society Information Society Advisory Council (CSISAC), a coalition of 80+ civil society groups that contribute constructively to the policy work of the OECD Committee for Information, Computer and Communications Policy (ICCP). The meeting will be held in the OECD Conference Centre in Paris October 23 and 24.
The Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) is an influential research and policy-making body that sets international standards on a wide range of issues including communications technologies and the future of the Internet. The OECD is comprised of 34 member countries, which include mostly developed nations, but also emerging states such as Mexico, Chile and Turkey. It provides a forum for comparative policy discussions between governments that seek answers to common problems, identify best practices and encourage coordination between domestic and international policies.
