On Wednesday, April 20, 2016, the Humanist Institute for Cooperation with Developing Countries (HIVOS) will hold a roundtable discussion in partnership with the Tunisia ISOC Chapter on the topic of “Youth in Digital Society: Facing the Challenge of Access and Improving Internet Governance” at the Hotel Novotel Mohamed V in Tunis. The roundtable will bring together prominent speakers representing all of the stakeholders working together on Internet governance issues in Tunisia.
HIVOS will bring together various groups of Internet users, including policy-makers, experts, operators, Internet advocates, IT companies, researchers, policymakers, media professionals, teachers, students, and interested individuals to ask questions and debate important policy issues relating to the Internet in Tunisia and engage with young people’s knowledge and experience. The event will heighten young people’s awareness of the opportunities the Internet affords as well as its limitations and specific characteristics in the context of Tunisia.
The purpose is to examine issues related to the Internet from a variety of perspectives, ranging from access and infrastructure aspects to human rights issues online. The event will be led by the Internet Governance youth community in Tunisia and experts in the field of Internet Governance. This will be a unique forum for a multi-stakeholder policy dialogue that aims to develop the future of the Internet – together.
This discussion will explore new policy solutions and encourage fresh ideas. The session will be facilitated by the IGMENA community in Tunisia and we welcome you to enjoy a frank and open discussion.
