Internet should be a free and open space where every person’s freedom of speech is fully protected. However, a lot of people exploit this freedom and use it to inflict harm on women and girls. On the one hand, the Internet and social media fuel and exacerbate gender violence; on the other hand, they present new opportunities and enabled various efforts to address this noxious trend. In this session, the Taiwanese community will discuss the education and communication needed to counter a wide range of gender violence online.
The Taiwan School on Internet Governance (TWSIG), founded by Taiwan Network Information Center (TWNIC), is a platform that aims to encourage the local community’s discussion regarding public policy issues of Internet Governance. The topics include, and are not limited to, local and global discussions about Internet technologies, economic, social and security issues.
Taiwan School on Internet Governance (TWSIG) will hold 10 events in 2021. Besides the high-interest topics such as ‘data’ and ‘trust’, we will also discuss environmental protection and diversity and inclusion. Detailed information will be published before each event.
