Internet access as a human rights baseline

December 6, 2014
– Tblisi, Georgia

To celebrate the 25th birthday of the Web, the Dutch embassy in Georgia hosted the seminar internet freedom as a human right. This talk was the keynote presentation. There was wonderful cooperation with the Institute for the Development of Freedom of Information to make the theme compelling to Georgian journalists and students.

This piece by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs reflects the day nicely. And yes, I’m apparently a journalist/blogger now.

The thought of a public value in core protocols was expanded on in this great report by thinktank WRR, The public core of the internet: an international agenda for internet governance. Also in Dutch.
