The Freedom Online Coalition (FOC) is a group of 30 countries, from all regions of the world, committed to coordinating efforts with each other and with other stakeholders to advance Internet freedom – free expression, association, assembly, and privacy online – worldwide. At this EuroDIG pre-event, Coalition members will give updates on the work of the FOC, present priorities for the German Chairmanship and outline progress towards implementing the FOC Action Plan for 2018. The session will also be an opportunity to learn about FOC's new mechanism for stakeholder engagement – the FOC Advisory Network – and plans for this year's Freedom Online Conference, which will be taking place in Berlin, November 28-30. This event will be a platform for all interested members of the EuroDIG community to discuss the work of the FOC and inform its activities in the run up to the Annual Conference. Members of all stakeholder groups are encouraged to attend.
