Working Title: High Level Group on Internet Governance (HLIG) meeting 2020

Session description

The High Level Group on Internet Governance (HLIG) is the platform through which the European Commission, EU Member States and the multistakeholder community exchange information and views in an informal way on a wide range of issues related to Internet governance. The goal is to guide the European Commission in developing European priorities for Internet governance.

Format and Agenda

The HLIG meeting is chaired by the European Commission and divided in two sessions;

  • an open session in the morning, open to all stakeholders and HLIG members who are registered;
  • a closed session in the afternoon for HLIG members only, being Member States representatives and the European Commission.

Agenda

(TBA)

Background HLIG

The HLIG has proven useful for getting input in an early stage about policy development, facilitating Member States to speak with "one voice" on Internet governance developments, and guiding the European Commission in developing European priorities for Internet governance. Over time issues covered are; ICANN, post-WSIS follow-up, IGF, EuroDIG, .EU, Internet Jurisdiction Project, and the Global Commission on the Stability of Cyberspace.

The HLIG was initiated by the European Commission in 2003 to prepare for the UN Summit WSIS (World Summit on Information Society) held in 2005. Hereafter the HLIG continued to serve as a useful platform to shape in an early phase the European input concerning the transition of ICANN into an organisation independent from the US administration.

In 2012 the HLIG mandate was reconfirmed as a non-decision-making body for sharing information and good practices, soft coordination and preliminary discussions facilitating identification of common positions in international fora related to Internet governance. The HLIG was expanded in 2016 with a section in the agenda open to the multistakeholder community and Internet governance organisations in order to have a more structured dialogue between the community, the European Commission and Member States on Internet governance issues.
