IFLA will be attending the High level expert meeting of the World Summit on the Information Society (WSIS).

The Event will be held in the ITU Headquarters, Geneva from 10-13 June 2014 (9 June pre-events). 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 event will review the WSIS Outcomes (2003 and 2005) related to the WSIS Action Lines with the view of developing proposals on a new vision beyond 2015, potentially including new targets. This process will take into account the decisions of the 68th Session of the UN General Assembly. The event is coordinated by ITU and co-organized by ITU, UNESCO, UNCTAD and UNDP.
