INTERNET & JURISDICTION — SPRING 2017 INTERNSHIPS

WORK ON GLOBAL INTERNET GOVERNANCE IN PARIS

Internet & Jurisdiction is the global multistakeholder policy network addressing the tension between the cross-border Internet and national jurisdictions. It facilitates a global policy process to enable transnational cooperation and preserve the global character of the Internet. Since 2012, Internet & Jurisdiction has engaged more than 100 key entities from different stakeholder groups around the world.

The Internet & Jurisdiction policy network uniquely bridges relevant stakeholder groups and policy silos in order to enable transnational cooperation. Internet & Jurisdiction strives to fill the institutional gap in Internet governance at the intersection of four policy silos: legal cooperation, digital economy, human rights, and cybersecurity. Through global, regional, and thematic meetings, Internet & Jurisdiction facilitates a neutral dialogue process to build trust among the different actors and help them develop the operational solutions necessary for the coexistence of diverse laws on the cross-border Internet.

Internet and Jurisdiction regularly and actively engages high-level actors from over 100 key entities including governments, major Internet companies, technical operators, civil society organizations, international organizations, and leading universities around the world.
