ISOC Joins 200 Others Urging UN to Safeguard Key Internet Principles

The Internet Society today announced that it has joined more than 200 organizations and individuals who have signed a statement intended for leaders and governments participating in the United Nations General Assembly's 10 Year Review of the World Summit on the Information Society (WSIS+10 Review).

On 15-16 December, government officials from more than 190 counties will meet in New York City for the WSIS+10 Review to assess progress in achieving a people-centered and development-oriented Information Society where everyone can create, access, use and share information. Leaders will discuss a wide range of issues, including the role of governments in Internet oversight, expansion of Internet access, and the impact of Internet technologies in supporting the UN's Sustainable Development Goals.

The discussions at the WSIS+10 Review can influence how the Internet is governed for the next decade and beyond. The 200+ signatories to this Joint Statement urged the UN to safeguard fundamental Internet principles and involve all stakeholders in the WSIS+10 review process. The list of signatories is available and more signatures are welcomed from both organizations and individuals.
