Stockholm Internet Forum

Mobilising for Digital Resilience – a free, open, and secure internet in the shifting landscapes of the pandemic

Stockholm Internet Forum (SIF) is the forum advancing a free, open, and secure internet as a driver of global development. This is an arena for exchanging knowledge and ideas, and the place to forge new partnerships within civil society, private sector, academia, donors, and government. SIF is hosted by the Swedish International Development Cooperation Agency (Sida).

The ongoing pandemic has led to shifts in societies and development across the globe. As both individuals and organisations rely on trustworthy information to act safely and resume economic activities, access to a free internet is critical. In this era of uncertainty, where technical solutions are hastily developed and deployed, we must ensure privacy and human rights are not set aside.

As we face new challenges for democracy, Stockholm Internet Forum 2021 focuses on Mobilising for Digital Resilience – a free, open, and secure internet in the shifting landscapes of the pandemic.

On May 10-12, Sida hosts the seventh edition of Stockholm Internet Forum.

SIF21 will be a completely digital experience, creating a unique opportunity for participants to come together and drive our cause across borders and time zones.
