EuroISPA asks EU for Joint Position at UN Conference
EuroISPA co-signed a joint industry letter asking the European Union to take advantage of the informal Council meeting on 2 and 3 October to decide on a joint European position for the UN International Telecommunications Union (ITU) Conference. EuroISPA underlines this joint position should reflect the recommendations from civil society and industry in Europe on the promotion of participation of all stakeholders in the ITU conference, and the opposition to any proposals to extend the scope of the ITU.
“EuroISPA believes the EU should be the cornerstone of a global coalition of like-minded governments which believe in an open Internet, human rights, and inclusive multi-stakeholder governance. The EU should at the same time oppose any proposals which restrict human rights in the digital age.” Said Malcolm Hutty, Chair of EuroISPA’s Intermediary Liability committee.
