FOC Issues Joint Statement and Accompanying Good Practices for Government on State-Sponsored Network Disruptions

by sflc_admin    |    March 31, 2017

The Freedom Online Coalition (FOC) has issued a joint statement expressing deep concern over the growing trend of intentional state-sponsored disruptions of access to or dissemination of information online. These disruptions challenge the FOC’s goal of protecting and extending an open and interoperable Internet, as affirmed in the Tallinn Agenda.

In addition to the joint statement, the Coalition has issued an accompanying document which outlines good practices, and encourages all governments to refrain from network disruptions which stifle exercise of the freedoms of expression, association, and peaceful assembly online, while bolstering multi-stakeholder, participatory and inclusive Internet governance, strengthening Internet infrastructure, and improving transparency.

All Internet stakeholders including governments, the private sector, international organizations, civil society, and Internet stakeholders are invited to take note of and endorse this statement.
