The EU-supported MAPPING project will organise the MAPPING WP4 Surveillance Event on 18–19 January 2018, in Rome, Italy.
Work Package 4 (WP4) of the MAPPING Project is focused on bringing together different stakeholders to share knowledge and experience and develop recommended ways forward on the issue of Internet governance. The developments in the MAPPING project and the possible use at UN level of the 'MAPPING draft legal instrument on surveillance' (mentioned by Prof. Joe Cannataci in his capacity as UN Special Rapporteur for Privacy in his annual report to the UN General Assembly on 20 October 2017), have received considerable international attention.
In this context, the January meeting aims to present this 'MAPPING draft legal instrument on surveillance' and encourage open discussions among the participants. During the meeting possible paths on the way forward and next steps to be taken will be discussed.
