Google and Central European University teamed up to co-sponsor the international conference Internet at Liberty 2010, which addressed the complex issues facing the development of the Internet as a global, free and open space.

The conference brought together hundreds of activists, bloggers and officials from the public and private sector to explore the often controversial policy issues of Internet communication. The conference program addressed the boundaries of online free expression; the complex relationship among technology, economic growth and human rights; the ways in which dissidents and governments are using the Internet; and urgent policy and legal issues of online communication such as privacy and cybersecurity.

Workshops aimed at activists, bloggers and NGOs brought together the world's leading practitioners of internet activism to discuss how to protect oneself online and harness various technologies for social change initiatives. With the exception of those workshops, all events were broadcast live online.
