The high-level segment will discuss the importance of Internet freedom for multi-faceted development. New communication technologies in many ways level the playing field between ‘haves’ and ‘have-nots’, but development in its various forms – be it for example economic growth or political participation – is also dependent on the free flow of information and open communication networks. How can the Stockholm Internet Forum understand and contribute to this reality?
