Session teaser

This 90-minute knowledge-sharing session will revolve around statements from leading experts of the national assessment of Internet Universality ROAM-X indicators in Europe as well as interventions from partners of the newly launched IGF  Dynamic Coalition on IUIs to trigger discussions on how to advance Internet Universality and Internet governance in the region.

Session description

UNESCO’s Internet Universality R.O.A.M (Rights, Open, Accessible to all, and Multistakeholderism) principles and indicators serve as a holistic tool to help Member States and stakeholders leverage the benefits of digital technologies, and provide a human-centered vision to governing the digital transformation in line with international standards.

As the national assessments of ROAM-X indicators are progressing in +40 countries, including Germany, France, Serbia and Bulgaria in Europe, UNESCO is reinforcing its extensive partnership with the EuroDIG community to advance Internet Universality by presenting and exchanging knowledge on the ongoing initiatives in Europe, and providing capacity and support in deploying voluntary national assessments in European countries.

As a regular gathering of the IGF  Dynamic Coalition on Internet Universality ROAM-X indicators, the Coalition also seeks to engage further with all Member States and all stakeholders worldwide to shape digital transformation by UNESCO’s Internet Universality ROAM principles and indicators, which underpin the growth and evolution of the Internet, in ways that are conducive to operationalizing digital cooperation at all levels, achieving the Sustainable Development Goals as well as supporting UN global digital compact.  

Objectives: 

  1. To share global, European and national perspectives and experiences of conducting IUI national assessment initiatives, good practice and lessons learned, as well as to exchange on the transformative impact and the policy improvements following the recommendations emerging from the assessment.
  2. Discuss how to make best use of the IGF Dynamic Coalition on Internet Universality ROAM-X indicators, how to  further engage the EuroDIG community and European stakeholders in the Dynamic Coalition, and how to raise interest from more countries and stakeholders to conduct voluntary assessment of Internet Universality Indicators.
  3. Lessons learned from DC members and partners on the importance of developing and applying shared principles for humanistic digital ecosystems, and a reflection on how the DC on ROAM-X can support consultations, development and uptake of the Global Digital Compact.

Format

This session will be held as a panel discussion.
