Freedom of Expression in Cyberspace

In preparation for the second WSIS Summit, Tunis 16-18 November 2005, UNESCO organised a thematic meeting on freedom of expression in Cyberspace prior to the PrepCom-2 in Geneva.

The purpose of the conference is to discuss the challenges and opportunities this fundamental right encounters in the global network. UNESCO promotes four key principles at the WSIS that are reflected in the Declaration of Principles of the Summit and is working determinedly to maintain this momentum.

The conference is one of the UNESCO actions to advance the process of the WSIS in terms of the promotion of freedom of expression and the universal access to information, two closely interconnected principles that form the point of departure of this conference.
