UNESCO takes the occasion to present its new project “Defining Internet Universality Indicators” and engage with ICDPPC stakeholders, data protection commissioners, privacy experts and regional actors for their inputs and contributions. This is a part of UNESCO’s global consultation to develop a set of Internet Universality Indicators. The project is an immediate response following UNESCO’s adoption of the ‘CONNECTing the Dots’ Outcome document in 2015, where UNESCO put the concept of ‘Internet Universality’ at the heart of its work to promote an Internet that works for all. Internet Universality points to four fundamental norms – known for short as the ROAM principles – which are the guiding framework that promotes an Internet based on human rights, and the principles of openness, accessibility, and multi-stakeholder participation.
