FOC Open Forum at IGF 2017

At this IGF Open Forum, Coalition members will give updates on the work of the Coalition since IGF Guadalajara, including the outcomes of  its strategy meetings on the margins of the Stockholm Internet Forum hosted by Sweden on May 16, the new modes for multistakeholder and multilateral engagement by the FOC articulated in its revised Terms of Reference, the Coalition’s action plan to address key issues of concern to Internet freedom, and the work of the Digital Defenders Partnership to support  civil society facing online threats.

We invite the IGF community to engage in a discussion on the future direction of the Coalition, in light of the member’s commitments—reiterated in the San Jose Statement in October 2016 to mark the Coalition’s five-year anniversary. This Open Forum will be a platform for all interested members of the IGF community to participate; members of all stakeholder groups are encouraged to attend.
