South Eastern European Dialogue of Internet Governance

The fourth annual meeting of the South Eastern European Dialogue on Internet Governance (SEEDIG) in Ljubljana, Slovenia.

With ‘Digital transformation and digital society in SEE’ as the main theme, and data as a cross-cutting topic, this year’s meeting will be focusing on what digitalization and the digital economy mean for South Eastern Europe and the neighboring area (SEE).

A high-level session will kick-start the debate on these and other similar topics, bringing together key participants from the European Parliament, national parliaments from the region, the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN), the Internet Society (ISOC), and telecom companies.

SEEDIG 2018 attendees will then continue exchanging and collaborating on various hot topics ranging from digital skills and the data economy to network and platform neutrality, cybersecurity, digital rights, and the highlight of this year’s Internet governance agenda – data protection and the EU’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).

To achieve this, SEEDIG takes advantage of flexible and inclusive session formats, with the programme of this year’s meeting featuring crypto-party, lightning talks, and world cafes. Those who cannot join in Ljubljana are welcome to participate in the discussions via live web streaming and online participation through a dedicated platform and social media tools.
