OECD Meetings: CSISAC to attend the 77th session of the Committee on the Digital Economy (CDEP)

October 2, 2018

The 77th session of the OECD Committee on the Digital Economy Policy (CDEP) will take place on 14-16 November 2018 in the OECD headquarters in Paris (France).

The session will continue the ongoing such as the Going Digital Horizontal Project, Artificial Intelligence, E-Commerce or Online Platforms, and will include updates on the contribution to the G7 and G20 among other topics. In all this work, the CSISAC will be fostering the Civil Society Principles, towards stronger privacy protection standards of personal data, including alignment with GDPR; asking for increased accountability on artificial intelligence, such as algorithmic transparency, including digital security aspects; and asking to ensure affordability on telecom pricing.

The CSISAC will take part in this set of meetings to bring the voice of Civil Society to the OECD policy making process. Confirmed participants include CSISAC Steering Committee member and Executive Director of the Electronic Privacy Information Center (EPIC) Marc Rotenberg, and CSISAC member Claire Milne, supported by CSISAC Secretariat Suso Baleato. The CSISAC wants to thank the EPIC for supporting this effort, together with the European Digital Rights (EDRi), and previous contributors. Civil Society participants involved in the related topics are encouraged to express their interest towards getting involved in the ongoing work and join the CSISAC delegation at the OECD.
