APNIC’s Pablo Hinojosa attended the Global Conference on Cyberspace (GCCS 2015), in The Hague, Netherlands from 16 to 17 April 2014.

Building on the foundations of previous conferences held in London (2011), Budapest (2012) and Seoul (2013), the aim of GCCS 2015 was to work towards a forward-looking agenda for a free, open and secure cyberspace by:

  • Promoting capacity building and knowledge exchange
  • Discussing norms for responsible state behaviour

During the conference there was a reaffirmation of commitment to the multistakeholder model of Internet governance and general support for the IGF to continue to be the platform for multistakeholder policy dialogue.
