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.
