The internet is a common good for humanity and ensuring its good governance will help bring its benefits to all people in the world.We have been discussing all aspects of internet governance during the global Internet Governance Forum (IGF) this November including its future as addressed in the context of the upcoming UN review of the outcomes of the “World Summit on Information Society” (WSIS+10 review). We believe Europe has much to contribute to ensure a shared governance of the internet is based on clear, fair, inclusive and transparent rules.Our European stakeholders have been working very hard to timely finalise and implement key reforms in the way some of the internet’s core technical functions are managed (IANA transition and ICANN accountability). In João Pessoa we have argued strongly for:improved internet access all over the world; An open and independent internet as a global, common resource, together with non-discriminatory access to knowledge ; the need to find solutions related to cybersecurity and cybercrimes, ranging from: (i) solutions to improve the security of critical infrastructures; (ii) giving the appropriate tools for secure communication to individuals and small businesses;
The EU delegation recognised that fundamental freedoms and human rights must be protected both online and offline and stressed the economic and social importance of online rights for privacy and of users’ control of their personal data.In light of the ongoing work on the Digital Single Market strategy in Europe, which underlines the importance of the digital economy and of internet access for citizens and companies, we restate our belief that a sustainable and inclusive governance of the Internet is fundamental to ensuring this strategy is successful and is essential to the world as a whole.The EU delegation recalled its support for the development of the Global Internet Policy Observatory (GIPO) to build capacity and share knowledge around the world of Internet policy and governance.
