*Strasbourg/CoE/Angelo Marcopolo/- The Head of Munich's Security Conference, Ambassador Wolfgang Ischinger, speaking to "Eurofora", supported the use of International Judges as a guarantee in case of eventual Global Governance Rules on Internet.


Ischinger had earlier pleaded for such a Global Governance on the Web, arguying that it would become necessary in order to Face various Cyber-Security risks, and calling for a rapproachment between USA, China, Russia and other key Countries, in order to allow International Institutions to Regulate the Internet, in a way which might profit both to Safety and Economic development as he claimed.


Munich Security Conference is a mainly Annual Gathering of Top Political Personalities, (including, regularly, German Chancelor Angie Merkel, several Top MEPs, etc., and, this year 2017, the new US vice-President Mike Pence, etc), for Contacts and Debates about various Topical Issues of Security, not only in Europe, but alsp Worldwide, which combines a well attended Meeting place, with a big Mediatic impact of Key Speakers.


Meanwhile, the Forthcoming, 2017 "G7" Summit of Heads of State/Government, this Year Chaired by Italy, is reportedly due to examine also certain "Cyber-Security" Issues and Internet's Global Governance, later-on.


But the question of the protection of Internet Users' Rights, concerning Both Freedom and Personal Data issues, etc., remained obviously, still wide Open, in case of such a Global Governance on the Web, (despite Ischinger's optimistic claim that People might, eventualy, find even their Data better Protected in that case, than what they might have expected).

That's why "Eurofora", speaking with Ambassador Ischinger at the CoE, just after his Keynote address in a series of High-Level Conferences on "Democratic Security", asked him if he considered feasible and useful, if not necessary, the parallel creation of at least some elementary possibilities for Internet Users to have certain guarantees of an Independent Judicial Control over such an eventualy Global Reglementation.


Since he had already pleaded in favor of "International Institutions", to whom should be entrusted a Global Monitoring of the Web, in order to avoid CyberCrime, various Risks of Attacks and/or Foreign Interferences/Attempts to Manipulate National Public Opinions, etc., particularly in times of crucial Electoral choices by the People, as he had evoked earlier, wouldn't it be both Logical and Necessary to provide also for a kind of International Judges, similar to those, f.ex. of Strasbourg's ECHR, Luxembourg's EU's Court of Justice, Haye's International Penal Court and/or in the International Law of the Sea (for Inter-State cases), etc., for the protection of Internet Users' basic Rights ?


After Carefuly hearing and thinking about that possibility, Ischinger reacted Positively, with a smile, clearly Agreeing with "Eurofora" that such a kind of Institutional Tools, for the observance of a set of Basic Principles during any eventualy Global Internet Governance in the foreseeable Future, would, "- Yes !", be certainly useful, in order to gain People's Trust into such a System, help prevent possible abuses, here or there, and ensure certain elementary Democratic/Human Rights Values in the Global Digital Society, in one way or another, mutatis-mutandis.

Europe brings Development dynamics at Global Crisis' Summit debates

eudevdays_400



    Thanks also to EU Parliament Plenary's Strasbourg gathering, EU, during the French EU Presidency, managed to integrate the Development issues at Top Debates on the World Summit against the Economic Crisis  :

    For the 1st time, it's at the same moment with the Wahington G-20 Summit that EU Commissioner Louis Michel co-organizes here with the French EU Presidency parallel mega-events for the "European Development Days", starting from this Week-End and concluding at the eve of a landmark debate in EU Parliament, next Tuesday, on the outcome and follow-up of the Wash.DC Summit.

    EU and its Member Countries are the biggest donor for UNO's Millenium Development goals, with 56%, but the 27 are currently struggling to develop a collective leadership in Economic and social matters, that the 15 of EuroGroup (together with the UK and other countries interested to be usefully associated) are starting to spearhead, after the initial success of the 1st EuroZone Heads of State and Government Summit, of October 12 in Paris, according to a New Repport by MEPs Pervench Beres and Werner Langen on the 10 Years of EuroZone (1999-2009) debated Monday and voted on Tuesday.

    EU, CoE and World personalities will interact here with Heads of State or Government from Tanzania (African Union chair), Burkina Faso (CEDEAO + UEMOA chair), Zimbabwe (MDC chair), Madagascar, Haiti, Mali, Benin, etc, and some 3000 participants from the Economy, Civil Society, Media, Experts, etc, while the City of Strasbourg adds various related Citizen-events.

    Opened by French Secretary of State Alain Joyandet on November 15, and followed by a video-contact with EU Commission President Jose Baroso on the Washington Summit Sunday, the EDD are concluded by Foreign Minister Bernard Kouchner on Monday, while their main concerns cannot be ignored in the Debate that EU Parliament will hold on Tuesday, (followed by a Resolution on Wednesday), jointly on the G-20 Washington Summit and on EU Commission's work program for 2009.

    A practical opportunity for EU to reflect where it's better to spend EU Citizens' money...

    The move is prolonged in several Paris' meetings of EU chair, French President Nicolas Sarkozy with African Heads of State leading regional Organizations, as from Tanzania (A.U. Chair), Burkina Faso (chair of Economic African organizations), Togo, etc, (in parallel with a Ministerial EU - African Union conference in Ethiopia, followed by a visit to Tchad), logically concluded by a meeting with Robert Zoellic President of the World Bank.

    Many have already warned that an eventual aggravation of Development's Gap accross the World might become much more dangerous to Global Economy, Security, Values and Quality of Life, than Global Warming and/or other, even more serious challenges...

    Will they find an innovative and voluntarist way to really deal with the Development Gap, which might also contribute to help face the Economic Crisis ?

Polls

2009 EU Elections were won by Parties against Technocracy and Turkey's controversial EU bid, while the 1999-2004 Majority Abstention trend decelerated. What should be done in 2009-2014 ?
