IGF 2020 BPF Gender: Public survey

This year, the BPF on Gender and Access is looking at Internet-related policy processes and spaces through a feminist approach, to determine whether and how they protect and foster participation of women and gender-diverse people. The focus (as described in the work plan) is placed on Internet-related policy processes and spaces that foster discussions or develop policies, recommendations, and/or guidelines that focus on (a) limiting violence and harm in the online space and (b) fostering the use of the Internet for self-expression and pleasure with consent as a guiding principle. In line with this, we intend to:

  • Look at whether and how the BPF thematic issues (violence, harm, pleasure and consent online) have been brought up at the IGF since IGF 2016
  • Identify regional policy processes and spaces (if any) that tackle the BPF thematic issues (from a gender-diversity perspective)

For this part of the BPF work, we invite you to respond to this survey by 20 September 2020.
