APC at the IGF 2017: Towards open, universal and affordable access to the internet for all people

Geneva, 17 January 2018

The Internet Governance Forum (IGF) is a multistakeholder policy dialogue space convened by the United Nations Secretary General in 2006 to “foster the sustainability, robustness, security, stability and development of the internet.” Twelve years later, it remains a platform for some of the most controversial internet governance issues, allowing actors with quite radically different and often opposing views to come together in an environment that is in the main respectful and constructive.

The 2017 IGF was held in Geneva on 18 to 21 December on the theme "Shape your digital future". APC mobilised around our strategic priorities  access, human rights, gender, cybersecurity and governance to  achieve our mission of ensuring open, universal and affordable access to the internet for all people.
