Session teaser

The Resilience session will move beyond the risks presented in the previous session, discussing what is being done and how policymakers can help to avoid Internet fragmentation, particularly in the European context.

Session description

The session dedicated to the Resilience to Internet Fragmentation will allow an interactive discussion about the measures necessary to avoid the negative impacts of fragmentation discussed in the previous session, with a particular focus on the European context and its regional Internet regulations. The choice of combining the organisation of the risks and resilience sessions was done to allow a more effective transition between these two closely tied perspectives. This second part of the conversation on Internet fragmentation will be shaped by the three knowledgeable panellists, who will be able to bring different perspectives to the table.


To allow a high level of interaction before and during the event, the session will be structured in the following way:

  • Initial 3 minutes of “punchy statements” by each panellist (10-15 minutes);
  • Panellists briefly answer questions provided before the session in max 3 minutes per speaker (10-15 minutes). Follow this link to submit your questions to the panellists. The Org Team will then choose a few questions to pose to the speakers during the session;

  • Questions from the public (Interactive 15-20 minutes).
