The event will feature David Kaye, the UN Special Rapporteur on the Freedom of Expression and Opinion, and a panel of experts from global civil society and the technology sector, in a discussion aimed at defining modalities for ending Internet shutdowns.
Key questions to be explored include:
- Who gets hurt when governments shut down the Internet?
- What responsibilities do private actors have to resist government censorship and surveillance, and ensure a free and open Internet?
- What more must the Human Rights Council do before it can be regarded as a champion of digital rights?
