The second Global Internet and Jurisdiction Conference of the Internet & Jurisdiction Policy Network will present a unique opportunity to address one of the greatest global governance challenges of the 21st century: how national laws apply on the Internet.
Key senior-level representatives from a wide range of stakeholder groups and countries will work toward the development of policy standards and operational solutions to preserve the cross-border nature of the Internet, protect human rights, fight abuses and enable the global digital economy.

Guy Berger, UNESCO's Director for Freedom of Expression and Media Development, will discuss about UNESCO's work on Internet issues, including about the project to develop Internet Universality indicators.
