Freedom of Information in the Internet Governance

18 November 2009 - A Workshop on Openness in Sharm el Sheikh, Egypt


Freedom of information is a core element to ensure openness in the information society. Right to information is a key principle of Internet governance, in order to ensure that the cyberspace is sensibly used by government and widely accessible to citizens. The workshop will continue UNESCO’s efforts to examine the challenges of freedom of information in cyberspace, and seek to mainstream the principles of right to information in the policy making and legal framework of Internet governance in various countries.
