On December 18-22, 2017, CIPE will be speaking at the upcoming UN Internet Governance Forum, a multi-stakeholder conference that promotes dialogue on varying internet policies at the international level. CIPE will be providing a unique view to the international forum, bringing voices of the local private sector to dialogues on internet governance and internet freedom.

At the forum, CIPE, the Center for International Media Assistance (CIMA) and the National Democratic Institute (NDI) will be releasing the final draft of A Democratic Framework to Interpret Open Internet PrinciplesThe Framework is the first of its kind, as common human rights principles for open internet are now reframed for citizens and civil society organizations in fragile and emerging democracies. The Framework, written by the diverse voices of local and multinational organizations, citizen activists, media representatives, civil society organizations, and members of the local private sector, highlights how an open internet is crucial for protecting and preserving democratic dialogue online.
