NETMundial@Moldova event was organized on April 17th 2014, in the eve of the NETMundial in Brazil and aimed at bringing together representatives of the public, private and civil society sectors to address the issues related to Internet Governance principles and also tackle the road map for the further evolution of the Internet Governance ecosystem. Additionally, participants had the opportunity to look at these two aspects from the perspective of the challenges faced nationally, when implementing Internet related or Internet based initiatives (e.g. No Hate Speech Campaign, etc).
While there are various forums internationally where the issues pertaining to Internet Governance are being discussed/addressed, such a platform misses at the national level. That is why NETMundial@Moldova has been a timely and valuable event for Moldovan stakeholders interested in the subject matter.
The event focused on a number of aspects shared and discussed with participants among which:
– What is NETMundial and why it is important to talk about Internet Governance today;
– Who are the key stakeholders engaged in the Internet Governance debate;
– What is the position of key stakeholders in Moldova on the current draft of the Internet Governance principles to be discussed in Sao-Paolo;
The event was chaired by the Deputy Minister of ICT, Mr. Vitalie Tarlev and moderated by Veronica Cretu, head of Open Government Institute.
