Surveillance, ICANN transition dominate Brazil NETmundial meeting

John Ribeiro | April 25, 2014
A global Internet governance conference in Brazil concluded Thursday with a strong focus on countering surveillance, including asking for a review of the implications on privacy of existing practices and legislation.

"Now, let's all focus on implementation of #netmundial Roadmap based on #netmundial2014 Principles driven by our newly born NETMundial spirit," ICANN president Fadi Chehadé wrote in a twitter message after the conference. Rousseff decided on the NETmundial conference after a meeting with Chehadé.

The statement also recommended that Internet governance should promote open standards by consensus and the standards should be consistent with human rights.
