Privacy and Internet Governance in Rio
I have arrived in Rio de Janeiro last night to attend the second Internet Governance Forum, a massive multi-stakeholder global policy dialogue organized by the United Nations. I am mainly doing field research for a study on NGO participation I am about to finish this year. But I am also involved in a couple of events here which I am very much looking forward to:
- a workshop "Security and Privacy Challenges for new Internet Applications: A Multi-stakeholder approach" I have organized together with colleagues from the LSE and the French Government
- a workshop "Privacy in Internet Identity Management: Emerging Issues and New Approaches" I have organized together with a colleague from Harvard and the Identity Commons
- the meeting of the Dynamic Coalition on Privacy, a kind-of multi-stakeholder working group on privacy issues that must not be called a working group in UN terminology
- the main IGF session on security, where I was asked to be a panelist
- the scholarly annual symposium of the Global Internet Governance Academic Network (GIGANet), where I served in the programme committee this year.
