Oct 2013 19 – 20

The second Best Bits annual meeting takes place just before the IGF in Bali. The Internet Democracy Project is participating in the event. Anja Kovacs is co-facilitating the session on the future of Best Bits.

Best Bits brings together a diverse group of activists and experts from the Global North and South who are working on Internet governance and Internet rights from different perspectives. The network offers an open space where each group can present and advocate for the initiatives that they believe offer the best positive agenda for advancing broadly shared civil society interests in Internet governance. Through knowledge sharing, it provides the opportunity for broader engagement in and better coordination of these initiatives. The aim is that this will lead to more informed, effective, inclusive and complementary advocacy outcomes.

This year’s meeting will have sessions on:

  • global Internet governance principles, enhanced cooperation and the IGF

  • the ITU and the WSIS+10 process

  • state surveillance and human rights

  • and the future of the Best Bits network

A detailed agenda for the meeting can be accessed on the Best Bits website.
