IGF 2019 OF #43 Open Forum on conflict prevention, cooperation and stability

Description: 

The EU recognizes that the interconnected and complex nature of cyberspace requires joint efforts by governments, private sector, civil society, technical community, users and academia to address the challenges faced and calls on these stakeholders to recognize and take their specific responsibilities to maintain an open, free, secure and stable cyberspace.

In this context the EU intends to organize an Open Forum at the upcoming IGF in Berlin on the roles and responsibilities of all stakeholders in promoting "conflict prevention, cooperation and stability in cyberspace". This Open Forum will address the need for responsible normative behaviour by all stakeholders and should provide an outlook to further cooperation on the implementation of such behaviour within the mandates of each respective community.

Different speakers are to contribute to an interactive panel discussion. Speakers are to be confirmed but we are aiming to have a speaker coming from each community, i.e. governments, private sector, civil society, technical community and academia. These various perspectives should provide an overall reflection on what it means to contribute to "conflict prevention, cooperation and stability in cyberspace" and what activities should be undertaken within the responsibility of each stakeholder to further contribute to this objective.
