The main aim of the session is to highlight the challenges and successes different countries have witnessed while pursuing a law suit against network shutdowns in their respective countries. For this purpose, civil society members from different countries will be on panel including Pakistan, India and Cameroon. The moderator will lay the foundations of the discussion by explaining which countries have gone into strategic litigation. It will be followed by introduction of the guests and some discussion around following questions: Is strategic litigation an effective way to fight network shutdowns? What have been the challenges while pursuing legal case against network shutdowns? Were any threats faced by civil society for pursuing the case against network shutdowns? Why or why not the case against network shutdown has been resolved? What measures are being undertaken to initiate broader conversations around the illegality of network shutdowns? What is the way forward and how can KeepItOn community support these measures?
