The Freedom Online Coalition welcomes the 2013 Internet Governance Forum in Bali

28.10.2013

The Freedom Online Coalition (FOC) welcomes the 2013 Internet Governance Forum (IGF) in Bali and congratulates its Indonesian partners for their excellent organisation of this conference. FOC members commend the inclusive and open atmosphere of IGF Bali, with participants from many different organisations from all over the world.

On 24 October the FOC hosted an Open Forum to discuss with civil society and business representatives how to further develop the Coalition and work together based on our shared commitment to the principle that human rights apply equally online as offline. Suggestions included sharing of best practices and establishing ways to connect in a more sustained way with other stakeholders.

Freedom Online Coalition members recognise the value of the IGF as a forum in which to develop principles and frameworks that may guide policy making regarding the Internet.  FOC Members welcome conversations on how to strengthen the global multi-stakeholder model of internet governance and look forward to an inclusive process in the preparations of upcoming meetings.

The Freedom Online Coalition has started preparations for its fourth annual high level conference which will take place in Tallinn, Estonia, on 28 and 29 April 2014.
