Professional speaking engagements - making an Impact!

I have been an invited speaker at international conferences in many different policy venues, including in the European Parliament, where I also launched my book in 2012. I have spoken at academic conferences at leading universities, and in many different cities including  London, Berlin, Kiev, Washington and Barcelona.  I have presented on topics concerning Internet governance, including  copyright, privacy and human rights. 

I am a trained public speaker, and a member of Toastmasters International (Advanced Communicator Silver). I am happy to act as panel chair or moderator. The skills I value in public speaking are the ability to craft a speech tailored for the audience and the ability to keep to time.

Iptegrity in brief is the website of Dr Monica Horten. I’ve been analysing analysing digital policy since 2008. Way back then, I identified how issues around rights can influence Internet policy, and that has been a thread throughout all of my research. I hold a PhD in EU Communications Policy from the University of Westminster (2010), and a Post-graduate diploma in marketing.   I’ve served as an independent expert on the Council of Europe  Committee on Internet Freedoms, and was involved in a capacity building project in Moldova, Georgia, and Ukraine. I am currently (from June 2022)  Policy Manager - Freedom of Expression, with the Open Rights Group.
