The CSISAC calls for expressions of interest of Civil Society participants to take part in the OECD work on blockchain. Consistently with the CSISAC recommendations, the OECD is taking part in the global policy making process around blockchain. Blockchain based technologies are expected to have a profound social, economic and political impact. The CSISAC is taking part in the OECD work on blockchain to contribute with a civil society perspective consistent with the Civil Society Principles adopted in the 2008 OECD Seoul Ministerial Meeting.
In addition to the Blockchain Policy Forum, civil society experts are needed to engage in the OECD policy guidance and working groups, such as the Blockchain Pillar of the Going Digital Phase II reports, the Blockchain Advisory Board, and the Blockchain Policy Centre. You can learn more about the OECD work on this topic in the site of Blockchain Policy Forum latest edition.
The CSISAC is the voice of civil society at the OECD Committee on the Digital Economy Policy. We facilitate the exchange of information between the OECD and civil society participants, leading to better-informed and more widely accepted policy frameworks. The formal recognition of this Advisory Committee by the OECD was the result of an effort initiated in the 1990s decade to promote participation parity in the global policy-making. Today, the CSISAC is the main venue to channel the participation of civil society in the OECD work on the digital economy.
