Regional conference: Challenges in an interconnected world, cross-border data flows, data protection and cybersecurity

22 November 2018|Event

High-level representatives from governments, academia, the private sector and civil society will participate in the event to analyze the tension between the cross-border nature of the internet and national jurisdiction. 

As connectivity and Internet penetration increase around the world, tensions over jurisdiction and normative coherence also increase. Maintaining the global nature of the Internet and guaranteeing respect for rights requires innovative cooperation mechanisms. Addressing these challenges is critical to preventing legal gaps that can be detrimental to the Internet and its impact on development and well-being.
