Event Details

Last December, the International Telecommunication Union (ITU) convened U.N. member states for the World Conference on International Telecommunications. The meeting highlighted deep divisions among
governments between a top-down, centralized, international regulatory structure for the Internet and a multi-stakeholder model. At the close of the conference, the majority of states approved a treaty that leaves the door open for the ITU to play a role in regulating the Internet in the future. The treaty does not go into effect until 2015, but it could provide legal cover and legitimacy for countries such as Iran and China, which exert a heavy hand in filtering and censoring Internet content.


Internet governance will continue to be a key debate in upcoming conferences, including the World Summit on the Information Society and the ITU Plenipotentiary Conference.  How do the complex power dynamics among governments, corporations, and citizens affect freedom of expression online? What is at stake in the debate on who regulates the Internet for journalists and press freedom advocates? Join us for a panel discussion on Internet regulatory frameworks and the state of global Internet freedom ahead of World Press Freedom Day on May 3.
