IGF Side Event - Many Worlds, Many Nets, Many Visions
The Internet is a place of contrasts. Consider this: In 1996 John Perry Barlow wrote in his Declaration on the Independence of Cyberspace, that “We are creating a world that all may enter without privilege or prejudice accorded by race, economic power, military force, or station of birth.”
A world that all can enter on an equal footing? Without privilege or prejudice? Has such a world emerged? A world where discrimination and fear has no place, where freedom of expression reigns? How can these beautiful words be made to fit the lived experience of so many all across the world?
The Internet we have does not fulfil the emancipatory promise some have ascribed to it: a medium to change the world and end all injustice. The Internet has transformed the world, but it has fundamentally destabilized or even challenged key societal power differentials. Or has it?
The Internet Governance Forum 2019 in Berlin is committed to "One World, one Net, one Vision". We beg to differ. We have invited experts and activists from all over the world, representing all stakeholder groups to present their ideas on how the Internet Governance discussion should be further developed regarding marginalized groups and communities.
