Open Forum - Freedom Online Coalition

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

The Freedom Online Coalition (FOC) is a partnership of governments who abide by the principle that “human rights apply online as they do offline”, and are committed to working together to support and protect Internet freedoms worldwide. The FOC was established at the inaugural Freedom Online Conference in The Hague in 2011. Today, the Coalition has 28 members, spanning from Africa to Asia, Europe, the Americas, and the Middle East.

By joining the Coalition, its members commit to upholding and advancing the Coalition’s shared goals and values, as stated in the FOC Founding Declaration (Freedom Online: Joint Action for Free Expression on the Internet), the Nairobi Terms of Reference, and the Tallinn Agenda.

Coalition members will give updates on the work of the Coalition since IGF Istanbul and the activities of the three working groups (WG 1 – An Internet Free and Secure; WG 2 - Digital Development and Openness and WG 3 – Privacy and Transparency Online)  on key issues of concern to Internet freedom.

At this IGF Open Forum, we invite the IGF community to engage in a Q&A with FOC member states, the FOC Secretariat and the co-chairs of the Working Groups on Coalition activities.
