The Asia Pacific Regional Internet Governance Forum (AprIGF) is one of the key regional initiatives on internet governance. By adopting the multistakeholder approach as its core principle, it serves as a platform for discussion, exchange and collaboration at a regional level and also, where possible, to aggregate national IGF discussions, ultimately advancing internet governance development in the Asia Pacific region.
