Notes from Internet Governance Forum 2013 #igf2013 Citizen's Lab

High Level Leaders Meeting

Professor Ron Deibert of Citizen's Lab

I will talk about "E" which stands for Edward Snowden. This word will make governments and companies uncomfortable, but we need to discuss. Sharing user information without user consent is the issue. Getting behind the closed doors and doing such thing will end up in escalated arms race by the governments- not only at each other, but towards their own citizens.

Various surveillance will unrest civil society.

We have to ask "Security for whom?" "Security for what?"

There are law enforcements and governance, but wholesale surveillance is against human rights.

The term "multistakeholderism" is used so often by people who don't practice what they seem to preach, and became empty euphonism. It should be changed by IGF.
