I was honoured to be invited to present at the Ukrainian Internet Governance Forum (IGF) on 30 September. The panel was Internet and Human Rights. I spoke about how blocking and filtering technologies enable interference with freedom of expression and how the collection of communications traffic data engages the right to privacy. It was a great experience to make such a presentation in a country that is

building up its democratic institutions, and seeking to learn how European law functions in this context. I learned that Ukraine is taking its first steps with data protection law, and wants to improve broadband coverage. I also found out that it is being lobbied by the copyright industries who want a new law for enforcement on the Internet, without a court ruling.

My slides were translated into Ukranian which was an interesting challenge as a presenter. The slide pictured is explaining the European Convention on Human Rights - Article 8 - right to privacy, Article 10 - right to freedom of expression, Article 11 - right to freedom of assembly, and Article 6 right to due process. I was pleased to get some very nice feedback and very much enjoyed the day.
