Parallel Session 7: Open-ended Working Group on Cyber – an FOC Approach

Ahead of the second meeting of the Open-Ended Working Group on Developments in the Field of ICTs in the Context of International Security (OEWG) in New York, this session will aim to highlight the perspectives of FOC members on the key issues of the OEWG’s mandate, as well as the links and implications for human rights. It will also look at opportunities for FOC members to increase engagement with all stakeholders, including at the national level, and discuss ways to support coordination among FOC members, and with the FOC’s Advisory Network – all with the aim of supporting more inclusive and rights-based discussions at the OEWG.
