Internet & Jurisdiction Project organized a multi-stakeholder meeting of the global multi-stakeholder dialogue process in 2015 on October 8-9 in Berlin, Germany. Sunil Abraham participated in this meeting.

Since 2012, the Internet & Jurisdiction Project has facilitated a global multi-stakeholder dialogue process to address the tension between the cross-border nature of the Internet and geographically defined national jurisdictions. It provides a neutral platform for states, business, civil society and international organizations to discuss the elaboration of a transnational due process framework to handle the digital coexistence of diverse national laws in shared cross-border online spaces. This pioneering multi-stakeholder cooperation effort seeks to develop a “policy standard” for transnational requests for domain seizures, content takedowns and access to subscriber information.

2015 is an important moment that determines the future of the multi-stakeholder model in global Internet Governance. The Internet & Jurisdiction Project hopes it can provide an opportunity to demonstrate that multi-stakeholder cooperation can produce operational solutions to concrete policy challenges that no stakeholder group can solve on its own.

The meeting will gather key actors from states, Internet companies, technical operators, civil society, academia and international organizations.
