Session teaser

The COVID-19 pandemic is one of the most drastic events of recent years, affecting almost all countries and social groups in Europe and confronting them with incredible challenges. Alongside the evident challenges in the public health system, as well as some serious societal developments, the pandemic also brings numerous internet governance issues to the forefront. Due to the strong involvement of the entire society with the dialogue around this topic, we would like to facilitate an exchange that is as encompassing as possible. Our major goal is to provide a platform and voice for every demographic and stakeholder group to share their experience. These experiences will then be discussed in a panel “COVID-19 – THE Gamechanger?!” by a group of experts.
