Internet Freedom, Technology and Innovation

People around the world are fighting for access to a fast, open and affordable Internet. Yet every nation faces different political, social and technological challenges when it comes to achieving this goal. In some countries, civil society groups are working closely with government to craft policies that will enshrine online freedoms into law. Activists in other countries face online censorship or surveillance. Groups are increasingly working together across national barriers on policy and advocacy campaigns. But much work needs to be done to unite these efforts. On this panel, Internet rights advocates will discuss how Internet users around the world can join forces, coordinate advocacy efforts, and share resources to secure and protect Internet freedom for everyone.
