Description

The IGF LAC Space, in its sixth edition, will continue to bring together a wide range of organizations, stakeholders and researchers from Latin America and the Caribbean in order to learn about the progress and achievements of recent years, as well as the projects and challenges of the time to come. Participants will address Internet governance from a Latin American and Caribbean perspective, commenting on how their projects have contributed to economic and social inclusion, advanced human rights and ensured universal access. The session will also be dedicated to presenting and discussing research papers that have addressed the use, development, evolution and regulation of the Internet in Latin America and the Caribbean. The session will thus seek to foster informed discussion and new opportunities for regional collaboration.

I plan to conduct my session online only.
