IGF: upcoming

I'll be speaking on this workshop at the upcoming Internet Governance Forum in Vilnius and will also be speaking on a panel on online human rights and state responsibilities representing the Council of Europe. I'm very much looking forward to my first IGF:-)

IGF Workshop on "The Role of Internet Intermediaries in Advancing Public Policy Objectives"

The goal of the Workshop is to discuss and identify lessons learned from experience to date of Internet intermediaries in helping to advance public policy objectives. The workshop will introduce the concept of “Internet intermediaries”, the categories of actors considered, their role, and the three ways in which intermediaries can take on a policy role: through responses to legal requirements; through their business practices; and through industry self-regulation. It will discuss the roles and responsibilities of Internet intermediaries for actions by users of their platforms, their nature and extent and the implications. The workshop is part of a stream of work being conducted by the OECD.

The workshop will take place on September 16 from 14.30 to 16.30, in Room 1.
