EuroDIG: Will Governments Let Civil Society Rescue Net Governance? - Monika Ermert (IP Watch) /via @jmcest -
June 20, 2012
"The roles of governments, civil society and industry in ruling the internet – and other spaces – seems to be in a profound change. With governments in cross-border law enforcement situations increasingly unable to protect fundamental rights, as European Parliament Member Marietje Schaake said during a session of the European Dialogue on Internet Governance (EuroDIG) in Stockholm last week, it seems to be civil society that can do something about it. The June 14-15 EuroDIG, the regional version of the UN Internet Governance Forum (IGF), brought together legislators, civil servants, non-governmental organisations and some industry representatives for the fifth time. Schaake, a member of the Liberal Party Group in the Parliament, said in a session on territoriality, jurisdiction and internet-related laws that complaints by citizens about the enforcement of third-country laws against them, might be one way to clarify the situation." -
