UN Secretary-General’s High-Level Panel on Digital Cooperation

Voiced by Amazon Polly

One of the main mandates of the UN Secretary-General’s High-Level Panel on Digital Cooperation, launched in July 2018, was to recommend improvements to the current digital policy architecture.

The Panel’s report, which was launched in New York on 10 June, and is being released in Geneva today, has identified existing gaps and proposed three models and respective functions. The need for agility in digital cooperation is clear. With such a diverse landscape of mechanisms, the report invites digital policy actors to discuss how the recommendations and models can be implemented in the coming months. International Geneva can contribute substantially to the report’s implementation.

The Geneva Internet Platform, the Permanent Mission of Switzerland to the UN, and the State of Geneva, together with other partners, will hold an expert discussion on Monday, 24th June, which will kick-start the global discussion on the recommendations made by the Panel in their Final Report.
