IGF 2023 Town Hall #119 How we can keep both our children and encryption safe


New Technologies and Risks to Online Security

Round Table - 60 Min


The purpose of this town hall is to deepen understanding of the status quo of End-To-End Encryption (E2EE) regulations around the world by having local experts provide information on these issues. We would also like to pursue the possibility of reducing abuses without compromising civil liberties through the participation of technical experts.

1) We will always keep the agenda clear and easy to engage in discussion from both onsite/online.
2) We will pick up questions/comments from online as much as possible.
3) We will consider using 3rd party commenting tools such as Slido.
