Join the Industry Dialogue and GNI at the Stockholm Internet Forum

 

The Telecommunications Industry Dialogue is pleased to be attending the Stockholm Internet Forum on October 20-22.  The Industry Dialogue and the Global Network Initiative are hosting an Unconference session on Wednesday, October 21, entitled Making Freedom of Expression and Privacy a key part of ICT development.  This dynamic discussion will explore how donor and development organizations can incorporate freedom of expression and privacy into their ICT sector development projects to better ensure that technology benefits the people.  How can these organizations work with others in the ICT space to design and implement projects in a way that respects human rights?  What lessons can be learned from company due diligence procedures?   Please join us and share your perspective.

The Industry Dialogue will be represented by its former chairs, Milka Pietikainen of Millicom and Patrik Hiselius of TeliaSonera.  GNI Executive Director Judith Lichtenberg will join us and also speak at the main session on Thursday, October 22 at 9:00 entitled All of the Internet for all of the people.  Here is the full schedule.
