Meet the Focal Point and get ready for Tampere
April 19, 2023
As the newsletter tool paperli is terminating its services, the format of the EuroDIG newsletter had to be adapted. As our survey results on the future format didn’t clearly point in either direction, the newsletter will only contain EuroDIG news for the time being. You can find our news also on the EuroDIG website.
Meet the Focal Point – Olga Kyryliuk
We are delighted to introduce you to our Focal Points – EuroDIG community members that take on the task of coordinating the Org Team for a session.
Olga Kyryliuk works as a Digital Rights Coordinator for Greater Internet Freedom Project at Internews. She has a PhD in International Law and over 10 years of experience in the field of digital rights and Internet governance. Prior to joining Internews, she worked as a Program Manager at the American Bar Association Rule of Law Initiative in charge of the regional Internet freedom advocacy program in South-Eastern Europe.
She is also a Chair of SEEDIG – South Eastern European Dialogue on Internet Governance and Europe Representative at Executive Committee of Non-Commercial Users Constituency (NCUC) at Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN). Olga provides consultancy and expert support to Freedom House, Council of Europe and a range of international companies working worldwide. She also dedicated four years to work in leading humanitarian organizations, including International Committee of the Red Cross and Danish Refugee Council, dealing with the provision of legal support to internally displaced persons in Ukraine.
Olga is the Focal Point for the Subtopic “Impact of the war / Geopolitical neutrality of the global Internet” (see programme).
