Swiss "Plateforme Tripartite" for the WSIS

The Plateforme Tripartite is a national multi-stakeholder platform for exchanging information on the information society, the internet, digital governance and artificial intelligence. It is open to interested individuals and institutions in Switzerland.

The Plateforme Tripartite, led by OFCOM's International Service, was created in 2003 as part of the preparations for the UN World Summit on the Information Society (WSIS). It was established for the purpose of exchanging viewpoints and coordinating Switzerland’s position with administration bodies, businesses, academia and civil society vis-à-vis the WSIS. Since then, it has served as an information hub and open multi-stakeholder platform for exchanging information on the entire range of WSIS topics (international information society, internet and digital governance), on artificial intelligence and on relevant activities in international organisations and processes. The platform is open to all interested parties from the public and private sector, civil society and the internet community and meets on an ad-hoc basis, usually once or twice a year. In between meetings, information and viewpoints are also exchanged by electronic means.

If you would like to take part in, or be informed about the activities of the Plateforme Tripartite, please contact
