Brazil-Germany Meeting on Internet Governance

In preparation for NETmundial, the Global Multistakeholder Meeting on the Future of Internet Governance, with support from the Brazilian Internet Steering Committee (CGI-Br), the Konrad Adenauer Foundation and the International Development Research Centre (IDRC), this meeting addressed Internet governance principles and a roadmap for a further evolution of the ecosystem. The closed morning session addressed such questions as: (a) How can the Brazilian model for Internet Governance inform the global Internet Governance debates? What can be learnt specifically from examples such as the Marco Civil and the Brazilian Internet Steering Commitee?; (b) What are key elements of the German debate on internet governance, privacy, and security and how can they inform global debates?; (c) How can Brazil and Germany cooperate on the path towards a new framework for Internet Governance?; (d) How can Brazil and Germany cooperate with and involve other countries whilst pursuing the goal of enhancing Internet Governance? What is the role of the jointly proposed and approved UN Resolution in this context?
