13 June - The 7th European Dialogue on Internet Governance (EuroDIG) took place on the 12th and 13th of June in Berlin. Over 700 participants from 67 countries attended the event sponsored, amongst other organisations, by the European Internet Services Providers Association (EuroISPA).
Along with other partners, EuroISPA suggested the Plenary 6 session moderated by Oliver Süme, EuroISPA President, to focus on “A secure and non-fragmented cyberspace: Rule of law in a cross-border environment”. The Panel held an intense debate on the Cybercrime Convention which has been into force for the past 10 years. The outcome of the discussions showed that the Convention provides a good basis to avoid conflicting legal frameworks for cybersecurity and the fragmentation of the Internet. It is therefore perceived as a starting point for a global multi-stakeholder dialogue to achieve global commitments on cybercrime. In addition, Internet governance could be seen as one of the keys to continue promoting the Convention on Cybercrime and encourage more governments to support and sign this important framework.
