Mauritius IGF and Internet Society Response to Mauritius ICTA Consultation Paper

The Mauritius Internet Governance Forum (Mauritius IGF), hosted by Halley Movement, and the Internet Society welcome the opportunity to provide input to the proposed amendments to the ICT ACT for regulating the use and addressing the abuse and misuse of Social Media in Mauritius.

The Mauritius IGF is an initiative that fosters policy dialogue among stakeholders on issues of Internet governance. It offers a unique space for an amazing range of people to share information and develop solutions on key Internet issues.

Founded in 1992 by Internet pioneers, the Internet Society is a global non-profit organization working to ensure the Internet remains a force for good for everyone. Through its community of members, special interest groups, and 120+ chapters around the world, the organization defends and promotes Internet policies, standards, and protocols that keep the Internet open, globally connected, trustworthy, and secure.

In this joint submission we provide our comments, loosely structured around the questions asked in the consultation paper. Between our two organizations we provide both a local and regulatory perspective as well as a global technical perspective on the consultation.
