On March 27-28 2011 the Canada Centre for Global Security Studies at the  Munk School of Global Affairs and the SecDev Group (Ottawa) convened a  public forum entitled Securing the Cyber Commons: a Global Dialogue .

The event brought together a diverse range of stakeholders from  academia, government, the private sector and civil society to address the  challenges of balancing cyber security with respect for democracy,  governance, and human rights, and the preservation of cyberspace as an  open commons. The event was sponsored by The John D. and Catherine T.  MacArthur Foundation, the Government of Canada, Google Inc., and Bell  Canada.

This video presents highlights of the two day event. A full video of  the opening plenary and panel will be made available soon. For  information on the upcoming 2012 Dialogue and future sponsorship opportunities   please contact: info@citizenlab.org
