FSF's Deborah Tate Participates in WSIS Forum in Geneva

Distinguished Adjunct Senior Fellow of the Free State Foundation and former FCC Commissioner Deborah Taylor Tate will speak in Geneva, Switzerland during the World Summit on the Information Society (WSIS) High Level Forum, June 9-13, 2014. Ms. Tate, who is Special Envoy to the International Telecommunications Union for Child Online Safety, will moderate and speak several times during the week. The WSIS+10 High-Level Event will be an extended version of the WSIS Forum. It is designed to review the progress made in the implementation of the WSIS outcomes under the mandates of participating agencies, and to take stock of achievements in the last 10 years based on reports of WSIS stakeholders, including those submitted by countries, action line facilitators and other stakeholders. The High-Level Track will provide a special platform for high-ranking officials of WSIS stakeholders, government, private sector, civil society, and international organization to express their views on the achievements, challenges, and recommendations on the implementation of action lines, emerging trends, and matters of strategic importance to the development of the telecommunication and information and communication technology sector.
