*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.

*Paris/ACM/12 October 2008/-

When Europeans really feel a vital need to urgently launch common replies to challenging World Crisis, as the present Financial turmoil of Global Markets, they forge new decision-making tools and new dynamics :

The 1st in History EuroZone Heads of State and Government Summit, organized in Paris at the invitation of French President, and current EU chair, Nicolas Sarkozy, with the participation of 15 national leaders and EU institutions' chairmen, partly enlarged to British Prime Minister Gordon Brown, after a highly symbolic duo with German Chancelor Angie Merkel, at General De Gaulle's birth-village, 50 Years after he welcomed there former German chancellor Adenauer (1958-2008), may have not one, but two results :

- The first, and more urgent, was to launch an "ambitious", "coherent", and "efficient" common European movement, able to stimulate "solutions" to the World Economic Crisis, as Sarkozy anounced from the outset : State Garantees (to new Bank debts up to 5 years), fresh Capital input (f.ex. by buying shares), support to distressed banks, (while also restructuring them), incite the European Central Bank to facilitate commerial bills europe-wide, etc.

"Acting swiftly", from tomorrow, national measures will quantify all these targets, with coordinated actions from all EuroZone's Governments : France, Germany, Italy and others, decided to anounce, at the same time, such concrete measures, according to agreements that we have already made all together, revealed Sarkozy at the final Press Conference, flanked by EuroZone's chairmen : EuroGroup's Jean-Claude Juncker, and Central European Bank's Jean-Claude Truchet, as well as EU Commission's Jose Baroso, to solemnly stress the will to find common European solutions.

- "United and Determined, all EuroZone's Countries will act to prove that Citizens can Trust" the Economy, Sarkozy concluded. If we attract also all EU's 27 countries, Wednesday in Brussels, then we can coordinate action with our American Friends at a Global level, he anounced.

- "With this new Toolbox, we do not want to serve Bankers, but to work for Europe and its Citizens' interests", added Juncker.

- "For the moment, we want to act urgently to regulate the Crisis. But the time will come when those responsible for this, will have to account for their actions. Yes to real Capitalism, No to Speculators. Those who abused, will face sanctions, Sarkozy warned.


Need stimulates activities which create new organs, say biologists, and Gordon Brown, compatriot of Spencer, the famous bio-Historian, would certainly not deny that, after his surprise visit to EuroZone's Summit in Paris, which attracted him one hour more than scheduled...

Decisions include also the creation of a Crisis-management European mechanism, which "requires constant Monitoring", as well as strengthening Economic policy cooperation between EuroZone's countries.

Sarkozy will be judged by History not just by the immediate Economic results, expected at the end of this week's decision-making proces at National and EU level, but also by the more far-reaching consequences at the aftermath of this Historic EuroZone 1st Summit : Will it succeed to become a precursor forging a New era in European institution's revitalization ?

Significantly, the French President sat, during discussions, between German Chancelor Merkel, and British Prime Minister Brown, facing the chairmen of EuroGroup, Juncker, ECB : Truchet, and EU Commission, Baroso, with Prime Ministers of Spain, Zapatero (a hot partisan of EuroZone's Summit) at his right side, and Italy's Berlusconi, at his left, surrounded by Austrian, Belgian, Cyprus', Finland's, Greece's, and Ireland's leaders, as well as Slovakia's, Slovenia's, Portugal's, Netherlands', Malta's and Luxembourg's leaders.

Meanwhile, those who tabled for a rift between French and German positions were faced with a smiling Merkel at De Gaulle-Adenauer's meeting place, a sunny Saturday morning, and a particularly active-looking Merkel inside the French Presidential Palace at Elysee's gardens on Sunday, (as happy few photographers discovered)..

- "De Gaulle's hilltop, at Colombey-les-2-Eglises, gave an astonishing overview to a huge landscape, entirely surrounded by splendid Nature, as far as eyes could see", said to EuroFora an obviously charmed German Journalist.

She was describing Saturday's inauguration of a High-Tech Memorial close to the Historic Giant Double Lorraine's Cross, built by famous Novelist Andre Malraux, to perpetuate the Memory of his famous call for "Resistance" to NAZI, and his vision for the creation of New Institutions and Franco-German reconciliation, to foster Europe's role in the World, also for the Future.
