UNESCO’s workshop on "Freedom of Expression as a Security Issue" explored security and security protection mechanisms as variables that influence freedom of expression on the Internet.

A second UNESCO organized workshop associated with the forum was entitled "Towards International Standards for a Truly Multilingual Global Internet." It aimed at fostering international cooperation in establishing standards for a multilingual global Internet.
