The road to the 2022 CDEP Ministerial Meeting
This website shares CSISAC´s road towards the 2022 OECD Ministerial meeting, which took place in December 13-15, 2022, in Las Palmas, Canary Islands, Spain. The OECD Committee on Digital Economy Policy (CDEP) is the Committee holding the Ministerial sessions. The Ministerial meetings are significant global events and are infrequent.
CSISAC, as the formal civil society engagement group at OECD for CDEP, provided this virtual space dedicated exclusively to disseminate CSISAC´s work, engagement, input and more towards the CDEP Ministerial Meeting. We provided this to our community of delegates and the broader multi-stakeholder ecosystem interested in digital economy at the OECD.Read more
More about us
CSISAC has been the voice of civil society at the OECD Committee on the Digital Economy Policy for over 10 years and has recently started its engagement with the Committee on Consumer Protection. We facilitate the exchange of information between the OECD and civil society participants from all over the world.
This leads to better-informed and more widely accepted policy frameworks. CSISAC´s formal recognition by the OECD was the result of an effort initiated in the 1990s to promote participation parity in global policy-making. Today, CSISAC is the main venue to channel the participation of civil society in the OECD work on the digital economy.Read more
