Internet Governance: Neelie Kroes, Vice-President of the European Commission presented “A European vision for Internet governance” at the European Dialogue on Internet Governance (EuroDIG) in Stockholm on 14 June 2012.
June 2012. On 14th June, Vice-President Neelie Kroes presented “a European vision for Internet governance” to the audience of the EuroDIG forum. “Europe today faces many challenges. The Internet can help us resolve them”, she stressed, while confirming that the European Commission was a strong supporter of the multi-stakeholder approach, because , she said, dialogue, participation and cooperation at all levels are the best tools for the best Internet.
The Commissioner would like to apply that cooperative approach to the EU level to ensure Europe really pulls its weight in the Internet Governance Forum – because Europe has the potential to lead the next digital revolution.
“To work together, with all stakeholders involved, to map out more clearly where stronger cooperation or coordination is needed, and what structures will give us truly multilateral decision-making. Either way, I believe that the best way to support the Internet is to have faith in our European values: and have faith that they can deliver online, too.”
