Human Rights at the IGF - the universality of rights on the Internet

The week started with a successful pre-event:

Successful in terms of over 60 participants from a wide variety of stakeholders a

Internet Governance Forum 2010: Pre-event on human rights

MONTREAL 23 August 2010 (CL for APCNews)

Attempts to get human rights on the internet onto the agenda at the Fifth Internet Governance Forum –the UN conference now in its possibly final edition— which is to take place in September foundered in the face of government resistance. And the IGF agenda for 2010 will focus on development and internet governance. However Vilnius will be the scenario to shape a debate on censorship, freedom of expression and privacy that has been clamouring for attention. APC and partners will hold a discussion on internet governance and human rights immediately before the IGF in Vilnius, Lithuania on September 13.
