The Special Session of the Internet & Jurisdiction Policy Network at IGF 2022 provided stakeholders with an update on the work of the I&JPN on 2021/2022, including its programs (Data & Jurisdiction, Content & Jurisdiction, and Domains & Jurisdiction).
It as well shared news from the Datasphere Initiative and fostered a conversation on how to measure and leverage the value of data, especially in developing countries where data poverty and infrastructure challenges pose barriers to equitable and inclusive digital transformation.
Finally, it presented the Internet & Jurisdiction Policy Network Regional Status Report “Framing, Mapping and Addressing Cross-Border Digital Policies in Africa” which was produced with the support of the Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) on behalf of the German Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ). Dr. Alison Gillward, Executive Director of Research ICT Africa (RIA) has been commissioned to prepare the Report.
